NATIONAL MS SOCIETY BIKE EVENT
Support Triton Teammate Jenna Fallaw’s Fundraising Efforts!
Dear friends and fellow athletes, I recently signed up to participate in the National MS Society’s Bike MS event in New Bern, North Carolina on September 13 & 14.  My high school friend, Sue, was diagnosed with MS several years ago.  She not only participates in the event, but is also the team captain.  l am very excited to be contributing to a great cause and participating in such a challenging event.  The goal of this year’s tour is to raise $1.6 million for MS research, programs, services, and advocacy for the 4,300 people living with MS here in Eastern North Carolina.  I would like for you to join me in supporting this great cause by making a contribution toward my fundraising efforts.  Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system.  Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis.  The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.  Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease.  MS affects more than 400,000 people in the US and 2.5 million worldwide.  I believe in the work that the National MS Society is doing to fight this disease and hope that you will join me in supporting them.  Thanks in advance for your generosity and willingness to join the movement to create a world free of MS.  Sincerely, Jenna Fallaw
