This summer, the week of July 14-19, over 800 Midwesterners will be riding the roads from International Falls to Duluth to raise money to support those with MS through treatment, research, and other kinds of lifestyle support.
We do this to show our support for those in our communities and lives who have this disease. If you know someone with MS or feel inclined to support our efforts, please do! Any amount makes a difference!
Please consider a tax-deductible donation to the MS Society to support the cause. Click on the link below to make a donation.
If you are interested in more information, please contact me or visit the National MS Society website.
*Stay tuned for other fundraising efforts around Grand Marais!
