Riding & Voting to End MS

For the second year, MS Activists were back at the Bike MS: Deception Pass Classic ride, asking cyclists and volunteers to learn more about advocacy and cast their vote for the issue they think should matter most to our politicians.

We collected 26 letters to members of Congress, requesting support for two initiatives that impact people with MS: improved access to mobility equipment like power wheelchairs, and enhancing research and data on neurological diseases like MS.

In addition, more than 100 people participated in our bean poll, casting their vote on what they think is the most important thing politicians could be doing to help people living with MS. And the results are in!

Thanks to our MS Activists who helped staff the booth and raised awareness about the work we do to support the MS community. Interested in getting involved? Learn more!
