BP MS150

Have you heard of the BP MS150? It's a bike ride from Houston, TX to Austin, TX over the course of 2 days that happens every Spring. (That's a L-O-N-G way!)

What's the best part? It raise a TON of money for the National MS Society which directly impacts the funds given to research treatment and ultimately, a cure for MS.

I participated in this bike ride during college in honor of my mom. It was such an humbling experience to cross the finish line with my brother and husband as we watched my mom cheer from the sidelines. She was the true hero that day - all we did was ride a bike. It never occurred to me that I might one day be in my mom's shoes and cheering on a rider as they cross the finish line in my honor.

This year, I have a childhood friend who is doing just that. I have known Andy Guthrie nearly all of my life and was honored to hear from him this past weekend. He was excited to ride in honor of my mom and myself during the BP MS150 2015 this coming April.

Every rider must raise $400 dollars to even participate and I'm asking YOU to help support Andy in the BP MS150 this year with a donation, a prayer or a 'Goodluck' wish.

To donate, simply click here to donate to Andy. Every little bit helps and I can't explain to you how much of an impact it will have on the MS community.

I can't tell you how excited I am to watch the cyclists cross the line in Austin, TX as they advocate on behalf of those of us who cannot ride.
