Released: January 19, 2023
We are proud to announce that our company has formed a team to participate in the 2023 “That’s How We Roll” MS 150 Bike Tour. Our team, Dan-Gulf Shipping, will join many other cyclists on March 25-26, 2023, to make a difference in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.
In writing this letter to you, we are asking for your generous fiancial support in giving to the National MS Society on our behalf. As we ride the 150 miles over two days, your sponsorship will inspire us to cross the finish line! Any amount you can contribute towards the eradication of MS is appreciated. It all adds up and is tax deductible.
MS is a chronic, often disabling, disease of the autoimmune system that randomly attacks the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Healthy nerves are insulated by myelin, which is a fatty substance that helps messages flow smoothly along the nerve pathways. In MS, the myelin breaks down and is replaced by scar tissue. The scar tissue can distort or even block nerve messages. Body functions become uncontrolled because messages don’t get through properly.
The onset of symptoms usually occurs between the ages of 20 and 50, making MS one of the two most common neurological diseases to affect young adults. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS cannot be predicted – symptoms range from tingling and numbness to paralysis and blindness. MS is a devastating disease because people must live the entirety of their lives with its unpredictable physical and emotional effects.
