Join the PD Slow Riders fight to end MS!

Multiple Sclerosis is more prevalent in Canada than anywhere else in the world. There are more than 100,000 Canadians living with MS and three additional people are diagnosed each day. This unpredictable, often disabling disease affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. The cause is unknown and there is no cure.

Each year MS Bike rides across the country raise money to support research and provide services to these individuals. Park Derochie is proud to announce its involvement in the 26th annual MS Bike Leduc to Camrose ride with its team the PD Slow Riders on June 13-14, 2015.

Last year participants of all ages and fitness levels enjoyed the journey from Leduc to Camrose with some amazing teammates, riding from checkpoint to checkpoint meeting new people and taking in the beautiful scenery. Upon arrival at the Camrose Exhibition Grounds they headed over to the PD Slow Riders tent in Rider Village where good eats, cold drinks and even better company was waiting for them. The evening included a delicious dinner, program and, for those with enough energy, a live band for dancing. After breakfast Sunday morning they were out on the road again headed back towards Leduc for a Finish Line BBQ.

In 2014 our team of 37 riders raised more than $42,000 for MS, meeting and exceeding our $25,000 goal!  This year our goal is to raise at least $50,000 as a team and to welcome as many new and returning riders as we can.

In an effort to work towards a cure, we would very much appreciate your participation in one of the following ways to help this great cause.

  1. Join the team

    as a rider and enjoy a weekend of meeting great new people, challenging yourself and celebrating each other’s accomplishments, all while helping to combat an unpredictable and debilitating illness.
    Everyone is welcome on the PD Slow Rider team! Please spread the word and let your family and friends know that they are welcome to join even if you are unable to ride.
  2. Volunteer

    with the MS Society to help in ways such as pre-event coordination, day of check-ins, food preparation or support along the tour.
  3. Donate

    to a friend or one of our PD Slow Riders team member whose donations could use a little bump.
    (Park Derochie has challenged all team members to raise a minimum of $500 in donations.)
    Whatever amount you feel you can afford will be very much appreciated.

We thank you in advance for your participation in which ever form suits you best, every little bit helps us find a cure to rid the world of this disease.

Ride, Volunteer or Donate – How will you support the 100,000 Canadians living with Multiple Sclerosis?
