About Angela Shaw

Hello! My name is Angela Shaw and I'm beyond stoked to be a support team member for the 2017 Southern Tier team!

 

I was diagnosed with secondary progressive MS in 2003. After a 14 year battle to maintain mobility, I’m now confined to a power wheelchair (Boo!). But with the generous support of Bike the US for MS, I was able to buy this nifty NuStep recumbent trainer (Yay!). It helps me to keep “moving”, stay healthy, fight strong!

 

I’m a HUGE supporter of Bike the US for MS and all they do to promote MS awareness, raise funds for MS clinics, AND to help MS patients (like me) live their best lives NOW. (Not to mention the fact that they host these really cool cross-country cycling adventures for others to champion the cause. Sweet!)

 

Since I can’t ride cross-country (my power chair only holds a 25 mile charge), I’ll join the Southern Tier team by doing a “virtual ride” using my NuStep. Starting September 7, my goal is to log 30,700 steps by the time the team reaches St. Augustine on October 29. Since MS is unpredictable from day to day, this will be no easy task. But I will do my very best to make it so.

 

My hope is to raise $500 to help the Southern Tier team meet its fundraising goal. It would be really awesome if you would please consider helping me reach my goal. If you can help, please click the “Donate” button above to give what you can today. Any dollar amount will do. All donations are tax-deductible.

 

Thanks for your consideration! #RideStrong
