Hi folks. This year, my entire family and myself are going to do the Toronto MS Bike tour to raise money for the Canadian MS Society. Money goes towards research to find a cure for MS. Just in the past few days, news reports of Major Discoveries have been released.

Since ehMac.ca started, we have raised well over $3000 with 2 past bike tours. The year, the "ehMax Family Bikers" are set to raise another $3000. Myself, Mrs. ehMax, and the 3 ehMaxettes (11, 9 and 5) will all be doing the 50KM tour in Toronto on September, 9th, 2007. My two older ehMaxettes will be doing the entire bike ride while the youngest will be pulled in a trailer by myself.

Click here for the official ehMax Family Bikers MS Bike Tour Page Here you can make a pledge to the team, and track our progress.

Please pledge your support today and help us defeat MS!

Do you take Paypal?
Donations are just going directly to the Canadian MS Society through their secure, online credit card system. If you go to the page, you can also mail in a payment directly to them.

For transparency, admin reasons etc... ehMac.ca is not acting like a middleman for payments.

RtC
:clap:

Below are 2 photos from 2003 and 2004 respectively with 2 other ehMac.ca members. :clap:
The last 2 years after that, was unable to get out.

This year works out ok and thought it would be fun to go out with the whole family, "The ehMax Family Bikers".

We're distantly related to the Von Trapp family singers. :eek:

Did you know ...

  • Canadians have one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world.
  • MS is the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada.
  • Every day, three more people in Canada are diagnosed with MS.
  • Women are more than three times as likely to develop MS as men.
  • MS can cause loss of balance, impaired speech, extreme fatigue, double vision and paralysis.
  • MS was first identified and described by a French neurologist, Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot, in 1868.
  • We don't know what causes MS but researchers are closer to finding the answer.

Mr. Mayor, each year since 1991, on Sept. 25th, the day my mother died of MS, I donate $100 in her name to the MS Society here in Canada. This year, I sent this donation in your team pledge.

" "Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,''
The shade replied,
"If you seek for Eldorado!'' "
That is very touching Dr. G! :)

My wife and I know of a few people touched by MS, but do not know anyone really close.

As an appreciation to your support, my wife and I and our 3 kids will dedicate our ride to her honour.

Thanks for your pledge! :) :clap:

If our honorable Mayor's pledge drive does not reach at least $1000 by sundown on Sunday, I shall send one of my doxie pups to her doom at Dr. Dworkis' Dungeon of Doxies. Here is a pic of the sweet face that will meet her horrible fate if more of you don't pledge. Remember, no pledge is too small to save this little pup ............ or to save someone from MS.
OH DEAR!!!!

Please people... save the pup! Save the pup! :lmao: :clap:

Mr. Mayor, I assume we can pledge more than once? After the aforementioned offer/threat, I feel that I am not sure if I could part with Tootsie. Take a look at that face and you shall see what I mean. We shall see.

Bon chance, mon ami, on this excellent effort you and your family are making.
Yes, you may pledge as many times as you like.

I may put my dog Mojo up for ransom. ;) :D

Wow... thanks Dr. G! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

The puppy lives! :love2: :love2:

If there is anything you'd like us to bring along the ride, let me know. ;)

A little thing I'm brining along... I'm going to be wearing the long sleeve shirt that MacNutt gave me as well.

============

We're now officially 1/3 the way there! 36 more days to go!
