Bike MS Champions strives to connect people living with MS and cyclists from the Bike MS: Mother Road Ride. These connections foster education, awareness, gratitude and most importantly hope, through the symbol of a Champion Identifier, a special Champion bib. During Bike MS, cyclists wear the Champion bib. The paired Champions are encouraged to exchange e-mails and to connect before, during or after the event.
Bike MS Champion bibs will be available at all packet pick-ups the week prior to the event. You will be able to write the name of your Champion on the bib to proudly show who you are riding in honor of. If you would like a bib mailed to you ahead of time, please e-mail Melissa Nelms at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a cyclist, you are not simply raising money for a cause. You are helping us to make a difference in the lives of others through programs, services, and research to find a cure for MS. Please take a few moments to read the stories of our Bike MS Champions.
Meet the 2010 Champions living with MS
There are three ways for cyclists to become a Bike MS Champion:
1. Choose your champion: This year, rather than assigning the pairs, we’re asking cyclists to choose their champions from the profiles above.
2. Ride for someone you know: If you know someone living with MS, you can choose to ride in honor of him/her. Then teams can inspire others by sharing their champion’s photo and story. Individual cyclists can also to tell us who motivates you. To share your story, e-mail Melissa Nelms at email@example.com. We will post them to the Web site.
3. Let us pick: Can’t choose? No problem. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pair you with someone.
