The final course prior to graduation, or Capstone, at St. Edward’s University in Austin is titled, Moral Issues in Society (Civic Engagement Emphasis).
None of us, at TWG Plus are ignorant of this way of thinking. Not a day goes by without hearing of someone promoting a cause. The team is consistently lauding schools(clients) for their global awareness, cultural engagement, or civic service.
We are all familiar with valuing others above ourselves. So when I was asked to write something about my riding the MS150 again this year, I jumped on the opportunity.
Anyway, Let’s beat MS!
Why I Ride
The first time I rode the 150 was to fulfill a personal challenge. When riding through Fayetteville a man in a wheelchair gave me a “high five” and told me, “Thanks for riding!” It was an emotional moment. I decided I would ride to fight MS every year. I believe in the work the National MS Society does and want to be an active part of it. I know I can count on your help.
Why I’m Moving Forward
Multiple sclerosis is a progressive neurological disease that affects people in many different ways. It could be paralysis one day, loss of vision the next or impaired memory the day after that.
Living with MS means living with uncertainty.
When it comes to MS, only three things are certain:
1. Another American is newly diagnosed with MS every hour of every day.
2. Many people are joining the movement toward a world free of MS – including me.
3. There is no cure for MS.
Let’s Move Forward Together
The Society organizes 100 rides nationwide. The funds they raise fuel research aimed at treating and eventually curing MS; they also provide crucial services for persons living with MS.
I’m helping the National MS Society move forward toward a world without MS and making a difference in the lives of 400,000 Americans with multiple sclerosis.
Please join me!
Last year the support of my co-workers pushed me well above my fundraising goal.
Although Central Texas didn’t share in the snow this winter, it was still cold training in 35 degrees with 25 mph winds and drizzle.
My current fundraising is at 63% of goal!
