Help Me Help a Great Cause

On Saturday, September 27th, I will be participating in the 28th Annual Bike MS: City to Shore Ride. I will be participating in the 75-mile ride and my goal is to raise at least $250$400. Obviously, the more the better! :) If you wish to make a donation, please visit the site the National MS Society has setup for me at http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/JimNorthcott.

For those of you unfamiliar with Bike MS, here is a brief overview:

---
Every hour of every day, another American is diagnosed with MS -- we need to take action now to help the growing number of people affected by this disease. I will be riding in Bike MS: City to Shore 2008 to help the 11,000 local people living with this devastating disease.

Today, there is no cure for MS, but we're fighting to change that. This is why I am writing to you: I need your help and support.

This year, I've set a personal goal of raising $250$400 and I'm asking you to make a contribution. Simply, click on this link to visit my personal page to make your donation.

You will be pleased to know that the National MS Society is the leading provider of programs for people with MS and their families. The Society also invests more money into MS research than any national voluntary health organization in the world. This is why I'm asking for your support.

Each one of us can help create a World Free of MS. Volunteer. Advocate. Educate. Donate. Participate. Join the Movement.

Warmest Regards,


P.S. If you would like more information about the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, how proceeds from the Bike MS are used, or the other ways you can get involved in the fight against MS, please visit nationalmssociety.org.

Thanks in advance!
