MS Hope for a Cure, Flywheel Upper West Side and the New York City – Southern New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society have once again partnered for an exciting indoor cycling event.

For one day only, on Sunday, April 6, the 2nd Annual MS Cycle for a Cure – A Ride for Research will raise awareness and critical funds for multiple sclerosis research.

MS Cycle for a Cure 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 Flywheel’s Upper West Side location, the event will offer participants four hours of dedicated, high energy cycling led by a series of Flywheel’s dynamic instructors.

In 2013, the event raised more than $85,000.  This year, the goal is $125,000.

WHAT:    MS Cycle for a Cure – A Ride for Research
WHEN:    Sunday, April 6, 2014,
WHERE:   Flywheel Upper West Side, 470 Columbus Avenue (between 82nd and 83rd Sts.)
WHY:        Proceeds will support the National MS Society’s NOW campaign for research.

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.
