Make Your Mark: MSA Awareness Tour 2014 is two cyclists' tribute to their father and brother Mark Versel, who died in May 2012 from a rare, fatal, untreatable neurodegenerative disease called Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). MSA robbed Mark of his mobility, so we are riding our bikes from Chicago to Washington, D.C., July 4-14, 2014, in his memory and to raise funds for The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition and other MSA charities.
Donations made through this CrowdRise fundraising page will go to The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition. The MSA Coalition is a US-based 501(c)3 with an established MSA Research Fund. 100% of donations made to this campaign will go directly into the MSA Research Fund. Through this fund, the MSA Coalition will support the most promising research for finding a cure, as determined by the Coalition's world-class Scientific Advisory Board.
Many thanks for your support.
