At this year's Bike MS: Deception Pass Classic, our MS activists built on the momentum generated at Walk MS this past spring by polling participants on which policy issue they think matters most to the MS community, asking "What's the most important thing politicians could be doing to help people living with MS?"
Nearly 150 cyclists voted in our poll. Sixty-nine percent ranked ensuring affordable and adequate health care coverage as the most important issue, followed by increasing funding for MS research (22%) and funding accessible transportation (9%).
Cyclists also took photos in our advocacy photo booth (view more photos from the booth) and signed up to receive Action Alerts. Welcome to our newest activists and thank you to Walt Corneille, Lisa Boon, and Martin Boon for their help at the booth.
