From the MS Society:
Hi Kelowna Killer Beez,
The MS Society of Canada’s MS Bike series is the largest cycling series in North America with more than 10,000 cyclists taking part in events from June to September each year. On September 17th and 18th the MS Society of Canada hosts in incredible two-day ride through the bountiful Okanagan Valley called the Scotiabank MS Bike: Okanagan Grape Escape. This fully-supported ride includes meals, snacks, wine and fruit tastings, is fully mapped and marked, has mechanical and first-aid support, and so much more. In addition to being a delicious event, the Scotiabank MS Bike raises funds for multiple sclerosis research, and programs and services to help people with MS to improve their quality of life.
I would like to personally invite the Kelowna Killer Beez to register a team for this event. Registering a team is so easy: simply visit www.msbike.ca and select the Okanagan event. Click “Start a Team” and you are on your way. Even easier is to simply give me a call toll-free at 1-800-268-7582 x7298. Every person who registers and meets the minimum fundraising threshold will receive an MS Bike t-shirt and those who raise more can get some highly coveted riding gear.
We also have three other great rides throughout the province for those who like to travel. Our Fraser Valley ride happens in June,Cowichan Valley in July and West Kootenay in August. If you are unable to join us this year, we ask that you kindly share information about these fantastic events with your membership to help us get the word out.
For more information about our BC Scotiabank MS Bike events please visit www.msbike.ca, or give me a call at 1-800-268-7582x 7298.
Thank you for your consideration, and I hope you will join us this year.
