For the past 39 years, tens of thousands of cyclists have taken on the challenging and scenic ride from Sydney to Wollongong, to raise vital funds for people living with multiple sclerosis.
The introduction of the MS Gong Ride Virtual in 2020, is an opportunity for Australian’s nation wide to get involved and show their support and ride for MS from anywhere in Australia, by simply signing up, choosing one of eight distances and committing to go the distance this October!
The fight against MS never stops, it is the most common neurological disease for young Australians, with over 25,000 Australians living with multiple sclerosis.
Taking place this October, all individuals whether beginners, amateurs or seasoned professionals are encouraged to ride from wherever they live, solo or united, in the fight against MS. All you need is a bike and a phone to take part. With no additional equipment needed, whether outside, or on a stationary bike indoors, the challenge is free and an opportunity to come together and show support for the Australians living with MS.
John Blewonski MS Limited CEO, is excited for the inception of the virtual event, and encourages all to take part to raise much needed funds for Australian’s living with MS:
“Even as the world changes, the challenges of living with MS persist. Over 25,000 Australians are living with MS. That number continues to grow, with 10 people in Australia receiving a diagnosis every week. The need for support continues to grow, that’s why I am so delighted to launch the MS Virtual Gong Ride. The MS Gong Ride is usually a sell-out event, and people travel from all over Australia and internationally to take part in this iconic ride. This year, no one will miss out. Wherever you are, you too can take part and fundraise to make sure every person facing MS can live well and receive the support they need.”
With free registration, there has never been a better opportunity for riders to challenge themselves and continue the fight against MS this October, crossing the finish line from wherever they are.
RIDE SOLO. RIDE UNITED. RIDE FOR MS.
