Every hour someone is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a chronic disease of the central nervous system affecting the brain and spinal cord.

 

Jennifer Margerum-Bennett

1964-1995

 

 

In 1989 Jenni was diagnosed with MS. Most people live with the disease and some are overwhelmed by it. Jenni was a small percentage that get it really bad and was in a nursing home with acute chronic progressive MS. Jenni died May 24, 1995 at age 30. She is survived by a daughter Holly Bennett now age 16.

 

 


You never think something like this would ever affect you...it only happens to "other" people.


Sometimes you don't know what you can do to help the cause, so beside just contributing every now and then, I have found some way I can put effort into my contribution. I started cycling in 2002. Looking for bike tours I signed up for the MS150. In 2002 I raised $980+. I started fund raising early in 2003 and collected over $2300+, riding in 2 MS150’s. I have started my fundraising late(have been pretty busy coaching Spring soccer and softball), but with your help I think WE can beat last years total.

 

 Once again on July 10-11 2004, I will be participating in Ohio Valley Chapter Kroger Brand MS 150 Bike Tour (but I will be doing the 200 mile option, which is 100 miles each day).  The tour starts at the Lebanon YMCA through the country side to Oxford, Ohio, they are nicknaming this tour "Tour De Farms". I am glad the tour is again close to home this year, riding some familiar territory. If you're out and about that weekend, you will probably see some lycra(spandex) traveling the roads, so please give everyone plenty of space.

Isn't it worth 50 bucks to see me sit on a skinny little seat  for 5 to 7 hours (depending on the hills) 2 days in a row???  (Whatever you can afford would be appreciated.)

 

Thanks for your past and future support.
