MHvsMS Gears Up for 2015 Bike MS: Valero Ride to the River

Methodist Healthcare Ministries and Methodist Healthcare System partner once again as the MHvsMS Team with an official team registration and kickoff party scheduled May 28.

MHvsMS 2015Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. (MHM) and Methodist Healthcare System are partnering once again as the MHvsMS team! In 2014, the team raised over $55,000 in support of Bike MS, a ride to support those living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This year's goal is to raise even more to help end MS.

Bike MS is a multi-day cycling event where participants enjoy a fun ride while also raising awareness and funds for the fight against MS. The 2015 Bike MS: Valero Ride to the River presented by H-E-B is October 3-4. Riders will enjoy a beautiful view of the Texas hill country from San Antonio through New Braunfels. Participation will help support programs, services and research of the National MS Society and make a lasting difference in the lives of people who battle MS every day.

MS is a highly unpredictable disease. The National MS Society estimates that the debilitating disease may affect nearly 2.3 million Americans in the United States alone. The chronic illness triggers a variety of symptoms including significant fatigue, pain and cognitive changes. The exact cause of the disease is unknown and it can affect men, women, children and adults.

We believe in the cause. Will you join us?

Learn more at the MHvsMS team Registration & Kickoff Party at Pappasito's Cantina on Thursday, May 28 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. All guests will be entered into a drawing for gift cards. In addition, register for the MHvsMS team by May 31 and receive a complimentary 2015 team uniform.
