MS Bike Leduc to Camrose, 2017

Jun 20, 2017

Our Active Physio Works Team Rehab riders are proud to support the Johnson MS Bike - Leduc to Camrose. Over the June 10-11 weekend, our team rode the 180km from Leduc to Camrose. With the support of our community, patients, staff, family and friends, we were able to raise $65,000 this year bringing our two-year total over $100,000!

Thank you to all of our amazing donors, riders and sponsors of the Active Physio Works Team Rehab! We are so grateful for all of your support. With our team of nearly 60 riders, we were proud to gather together and ride 180km in support of the MS Society of Canada. Thank you to the MS Bike staff & volunteers who coordinate such a wonderful event each year.

Many of our riders have had loved ones directly affected by the disease and are proud to raise funds in support of one day ending MS. Canada has the highest rate of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world, with an estimated 1 in 340 Canadians currently living with the disease. Current projections for people affected by the disease have increased from an estimated 98,000 in 2011, to a projection of 133,000 people living with the debilitating disease by 2031.

Multiple Sclerosis is most often diagnosed in young adults aged 15 to 40. It is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system and is unpredictable for each person that is affected by the disease. It can cause symptoms such as extreme fatigue, lack of coordination, weakness, tingling, impaired sensation, vision problems, bladder problems, cognitive impairment and mood changes.

Currently, there is no cure for MS but each day researchers are studying the disease and ways to eventually find a cure for it. With your support, the fundraising we have done over the past two years goes directly to support the research currently being done to end MS. Current research is being done to develop better treatments with less side effects, ways to improve quality of life, progression and therapies, cause and risk factors for MS; as well as nerve damage and repair. Each year, the MS Society of Canada funds approximately $10 million dollars in research to support the investigation of all aspects of Multiple Sclerosis. They support research and training programs with a network of individuals recently entering the field and engage them to fine tune their skills and knowledge specific to MS research.

Thank you to our Team Captain, Tyler Gamblin, for coordinating our team and its primary fundraising efforts. He will soon share his story on the team’s fundraising and the weekend ride. Check back for his post in the coming weeks.

We look forward to continuing our fight in the upcoming years. Our next ride will be June 9/10 of 2018! Should you or anyone you know be willing to join Team Rehab next year, or would like to support us with a donation, please contact our Team Captain, Tyler Gamblin, by emailing tyler@activephysioworks.com. He can answer any questions or concerns you may have about the ride.
