Get Involved to Help Find a Cure for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)- City to Shore Bike Tour – Sept 25-26, 2010

Help Find a Cure for Multiple Sclerosis

Have you heard of the MS150 City to Shore Bike Tour?  It’s held every year, and is one of many rides around the country to support the continued fight against multiple sclerosis. These rides–along with numerous other efforts–are a product of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, an organization which is dedicated to ending the devastating effects of MS, a debilitating chronic disease of the central nervous system.  They simultaneously fund research for a cure while also helping people who currently live with MS lead more fulfilling lives.  More than 400,000 Americans live with MS, and your support can and will make changes in their lives.

A friend of mine is participating in this event for the first time and he is incredibly excited to join this worthy cause.  I want to help him out by asking all of you who are reading this to get behind him and make a donation.  Let’s make this interesting though. This IS Social Media PHILANTHROPY right?  Here’s what I propose:  Donate $10.  It’s not a lot of money.  BUT, don’t just donate $10, donate and then tell 5 people about this.  I bet over the course of the next 6-8 hours we can raise $500 with no problem and if you really take this on personally, I bet we could break $1000 or even more.  I just made mine!  Let’s go everyone!

Here’s how to do it:

To donate online follow this link,

Enter my friend’s name: Steve Caplan

Enter Home State: PA

If you would rather pay by check send me an email: jeffgibbard@gmail.com and I’ll send you the address to mail it to.
