THE STORY:

I know I will find the strength to persevere, just as my mother did and my son continues to do each day, but I would like to invite all of you to join me on a journey that will be one of my toughest challenges to date.

For you see, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects millions of people, including our loved ones, families, friends and co-workers. My mother lived courageously for half her life with MS until the disease destroyed her body and she could fight no more. 

I aim to honor my mother by riding (not racing) in the 2014 Bike MS, as the ride promises to bring us together to make a difference and each mile we ride brings us closer to a world free of MS.  I will ride along with a team of 15 riders in the National MS Society of Delaware’s “Bike to Bay” event September 20-21, 2014, covering 150 miles over the course of two days.  With your help, however, this year will be different, as I will have a riding partner, my son, Bryan.  He will Captain our team in an adaptive bike trailer, as he experiences his first endurance bike event.  Without this adaptive bike trailer, he would not be able to join me due to another yet another neurological disease that has impacted our family, mitochondrial disease.  This will surely be a challenge, but nothing like the challenges people with MS and mitochondrial disease battle each and every day.

To enable my son to ride with me, I need to upgrade my current jogging stroller to an adaptive bike trailer that will also double as a push chair to use in road races.  I am seeking donations to help meet the cost of purchasing this chair, as well as support two wonderful organizations:  Ainsley’s Angels of America and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

Your donation will help me give Bryan the experience of participating in his first long distance bike event and make it possible for Ainsley’s Angels to continue to fulfill its mission to:

"In addition to ensuring everyone can experience endurance events, Ainsley's Angels of America aims to build awareness about America's special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life, by promoting awareness, providing education, and participating as active members in local communities."    Additionally, proceeds will also be made to the Delaware Chapter of the National MS Society. 

Thank you for taking a moment to read about our efforts; Together We Shall!  From a grateful daughter and proud mother,

Anne Baker- Tuccillo
