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

For one night only, on Sunday, July 21, MS Cycle for a Cure will raise awareness and critical funds for multiple sclerosis research.

MS Cycle for a Cure is the brainchild of Elissa J. Levy, founder and president of MS Hope for a Cure, who is living with MS.
“Indoor cycling is personal to me since it was the first physical activity I was able to participate in when I regained the use of my right leg,” says Levy. “I hope everyone will challenge themselves to come out and ride with us to raise awareness and funds for much needed critical research to help everyone living with MS.”

Hosted at Flywheel’s upper West Side location, the event will offer approximately 200 participants four hours of dedicated, high energy cycling led by a series of Flywheel’s dynamic instructors.

“We are pleased to partner with MS Hope for a Cure and Flywheel to offer this unique and fun way to raise funds and awareness for multiple sclerosis,” says Robin Einbinder, chapter president.

WHEN:   Sunday, July 21, 2013, 7-11 p.m.
WHERE:   Flywheel Upper West Side, 470 Columbus Avenue (between 82nd and 83rd Sts.)

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.
