All you need is a bike and the passion to end MS

The 19th annual Scotiabank MS Bike – Kamloops will take place on Sunday, Sept. 21

The 19th annual Scotiabank MS Bike – Kamloops will take place on Sunday, Sept. 21 starting at Riverside Park.

Cyclists can pick their own pace and choose to challenge themselves with distance options from 12 to 70 kilometers with fun stops along the way.

New this year, participants who fundraise $175 or more will be treated to exclusive perks including a winery tour and wine tasting at Privato Vineyard and Winery.

The whole event wraps up with a rewarding lunch back at Riverside Park which incorporates food donated by local area farms. There are also great draw and fundraising prizes available.

The money raised at this event is used locally to assist people living with MS and their families through programs and events in and around the Kamloops Area.  As well, the Kamloops and Area Chapter strives to provide hope for tomorrow by working collectively with other Chapters across Canada to donate to MS research.

To register, or for more information, visit msbike.ca or call Fundraising Coordinator Katrina Harding at 250-314-0773. More volunteers are also needed to support the event – details can be found on the Kamloops and Area Chapter Website www.mssociety.ca/kamloops under “Volunteer Opportunities”.
