Together we are stronger. We love seeing Bike MS teams come together in a common purpose, to help create a world free of #MS! If you haven't rode in a @bike_ms event yet, make this next year your first! #dontjustride #bikeMS

Jennifer Rios was diagnosed with MS in 2000 at age 18. Two of her cousins have been diagnosed with MS in the last decade. Rios is a teacher in a middle school where most of the students are Hispanic, yet, she says, “There’s no awareness of MS.” Cultural differences, language barriers, lack of access to quality medical care and immigration concerns can create obstacles to care. But efforts by people living with #MS, healthcare professionals, researchers and advocates are helping to raise #MSawareness and improve diagnosis and treatment for Hispanics with MS, both in the U.S. and worldwide.

“My vision was pretty much gone for two weeks. It was miserable. I had heard about mud runs, but I never would have thought I’d ever do one. It was kind of a coincidence that I learned about Muckfest MS almost immediately after I was diagnosed with MS. I thought there’s not much I can control about this disease, but this is something I can do to fuel progress and help find a cure.” -George, @muckfest Team Captain

David Fox and Koreen Burrow have been married 27 years. In 1991, right after David proposed, but before they were married – Koreen was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She gave him an ‘out’ but he said “No way,” and insisted on going through with the marriage. They have never looked back.
Koreen rode the first @bike_ms in 2007 in Alaska on a bike borrowed from a friend. Neither her or her husband were a cyclist at the time, but they wanted a new challenge. David followed Koreen to make sure she’d make it the first time! He has ridden with her every ride since.
A couple years after that first ride, Koreen had a severe flare up with her MS. It scared them both enough to know that they needed to step up their game to find a cure and raise awareness. That is when they decided to ride a Bike MS event in every state. Ten years later and they have 1 state to go. They will complete their 50th state this weekend in North Carolina! #dontjustride #bikeMS #endMS

When Aimee was 16, she woke up one morning with a numb arm. The numbness was followed by balance problems, foot drop, urinary incontinence and a multitude of other symptoms—all things Aimee never dreamed she would face as a high schooler. After she visited a neurologist, she was diagnosed with MS. Thanks to her mom, who immediately started researching treatments and everything she could find about MS, Aimee kept living her best life. She kept active, including skydiving, graduating from college, getting married, instructing yoga and tai chi, being a team captain for Walk MS, and achieving so many more accomplishments. “I won’t give MS the power to stop me!" Aimee first participated in Walk MS when her Martial Arts Studio started searching for an organization that would help to support Aimee, and they haven’t stopped walking since. "Participating in Walk MS reminds me that I’m not the only one moving forward in spite of multiple sclerosis," she says. "Coming together really does make us stronger. We help each other. We learn from each other. And we inspire each other.” Her circle of family and friends helped her raise more than $2,600 in her first year, as she says, "My friends and family care about the things that are important to me. That’s true for everyone, and almost everyone knows someone who is affected by MS. Raising money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is contagious!" #walkMS #WalkTogether

“I was recruited to team StayFit at Hyatt for the 2012 ride. I'd never ridden a road bike, but thought it sounded fun. I had a blast that year, but also learned more about the National MS Society, it's resources, and how it supports people with MS. Fast forward to November, 2013, my Joe gets diagnosed with MS. As soon as he was home from the neurologist, we were googling everything you can imagine related to MS. The one place we felt that we could get the best information was through the National MS Society. In the days that followed his diagnoses, we went from being pretty freaked out, to feeling like things would totally be ok, all because the National MS Society would be there for whatever we needed. We knew we had allies, and that was the most important thing as we faced, and continue to face this disease. Looking back, I'm so thankful for @bike_ms, and for the information it brought to my life. We ride every year because it's a great time...but we also ride to spread the word about the National MS Society, and to meet others who are navigating the same path as us.” - Melissa #bikeMS #endMS #multiplesclerosis

"MS is my mission and my passion in life - second only to my wife. One of my great satisfactions is the founding the Latin American Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis… Years back #MS was studied in very few medical schools in Latin America. Now there’s big interest all over the hemisphere, and the number of papers and studies has greatly increased.” – Dr. Victor Rivera, founder of Maxine Mesinger MS Comprehensive Care Center in Houston and the National MS Society’s Hispanic/Latino Advisory Council.
