The National MS Society Wants to See You on a Bike

 

Find an event near you and ride your bike for multiple sclerosis research.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) is an organization with a network of chapters throughout the US. The organization's goal is to move towards a world free of multiple sclerosis, a debilitating disease that attacks the central nervous system. Over time, those suffering from MS become less able to move and function on their own, which is why the Society seeks to fund research and develop medications to both treat and cure MS.

The Society holds events across the country, including more than 100 bike rides across the nation. More than 100,000 people participate around the US and there's sure to be one near you. It's important to train for the MS bike ride, but as difficulty ranges from easy to challenging, there's a ride for every fitness level.
