About Bonnie Iorfido
I turned 60 at the beginning of this year and decided it was time to fulfill a desire I have had for a few years which is ride my bicycle across America. As I was researching various trips from groups to riding with individuals, I came upon the Bike the US for MS tour. I have completed 5 Bike MS rides in my local area over the years so I am familiar with the charity. I also know people who have been diagnosed with MS so it just made sense to do this ride. I am able to do something I thoroughly enjoy doing (riding my bike) and raise support for research, treatment as well as financial assistance for those diagnosed with MS. What a win win situation. I will join other riders supporting the cause and not only will we ride but we will also do service projects along the route.
Mulitple Sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS) which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving hope to people affected by the disease.
The ride starts in Yorktown Virginia on June 1 and ends in San Francisco California on August 1. The ride is 3785 miles and I need to raise at least one dollar for each mile so that is a minimum of $3785. I am asking you to help support me as I Bike the US for MS.
