About Diane Mattens

 MS; YOU’RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!

I think I can, I think I can! Yep, I know I can! My inside voice says, “Just Do It!” I will have 4,295 miles to ponder solutions to all the questions sitting in my “parking lot!”


A journey riding my bike across the NORTHERN TIER with a group of riders passionate about THE CAUSE, will be an epic milestone for me. I’m ready to trade in work scrubs for bike shorts to raise awareness that MS is a disease with NO cure! Together, we can make a difference; my goal is to raise $13,000 to fund projects which facilitate independent living, give those with debilitating MS assistance, and help people “keep moving.”


It takes people power, $$$, and organization to find cures for diseases like MS. I am committed to ride because I CAN! I am training hard, my playlist is growing and I am visualizing the best sleeping mat money can buy!!!


One pedal at a time, one dollar at a time, and one NEW discovery! Please partner with me to rid MS from the US one mile at a time. Think of this as an investment in our future. Money donated will support people living with MS gain new lifestyle tools to individualize their needs, and empower them to transform challenges into possibilites.


“You have to climb to the top before you can coast.”
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving!”
