Ride Inside with MS Cycle for a Cure - A Ride for Research

WILLISTON, VT – Riding inside is a great way for cyclists of every level to get in shape despite the chilly temperatures and at the same time fund research for a cure for multiple sclerosis.  On April 26, 2015, “MS Cycle for a Cure” takes place at Synergy Fitness in Williston, 426 Industrial Avenue; it’s an inspiring indoor cycling event hosted by MS Hope for a Cure and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

MS Cycle for a Cure - A Ride for Research

MS Cycle for a Cure - A Ride for Research, is a one day only opportunity to raise awareness and critical funds for multiple sclerosis research.  Piloted in 2013 in New York City, this fun and successful event expanded into New England in 2014, and is taking place in Vermont for the second time.  Each rider pays a $25 registration fee and agrees to raise a minimum of $250 to participate in this invigorating and uplifting indoor cycling event. 

MS Cycle for a Cure – A Ride for Research is the brainchild of Elissa J. Levy (EJ), founder and president of MS Hope for a Cure, who is living with MS.  The event was created to bring together people living with MS, Centers for Comprehensive MS Care, doctors and staff, pharmaceutical companies, and researchers for an inspiring event.

“The goal of this ride is to bring the entire MS community together,” says Levy.  “Though our bikes are stationary, our progress is not.  Every dollar raised brings us closer to a breakthrough to find a cure for this disease.”

Hosted at Synergy Fitness, the event offers participants four hours of dedicated, high energy cycling led by a series of dynamic instructors.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
