Multiple Sclerosis is one of those tragic diseases that strikes the rich, the poor, every race and religion, in every country. It is a progressive neurological disease that affects people in many different ways. It could be paralysis one day, loss of vision the next or impaired memory the day after that. When it comes to MS, two things are certain: Someone is newly diagnosed with MS every hour of every day, and living with MS means living with uncertainty.
Seven times over the past few years, I have participated in the MS 150 Bike Tour to raise money to find a cure for MS, and I'm doing it again in April 2012
Donating is both easy and tax deductible and you’ll be doing the right thing for someone else. All you have to do is donate online at www.nationalMSsociety.org/goto/jeffjohnson
You can donate set amount (but not so small that you'll be embarrassed), by the mile(Remember it is 180 miles), or as a business or corporate sponsorship: For $500 I will advertise your business, charity, or even YOU on my shirt or bike, exposing your brand to nearly 20,000 riders, tens of thousands of spectators, hundreds of cows, and the media who show up in every town along the way. In past years generous sponsors have added logo panels on my bike, asked me to wear customized jerseys, and added stickers to my helmet. You provide them & I’ll add them.
You can do one thing more: Send this email to 10 friends of colleagues with a personal note from you. You can help by asking others to donate.
