Top 10 reasons to support my MS 150 ride

10. Your donation will directly help the more than 400,000 people in the U.S. with MS and their families (click on "donate", enter "Rebecca Leeb", leave "home state blank", donate!)

9. No. Ice. Needed. (just sayin)
yes, i am sitting in an ice bath. why would i do such an insane thing?
what can i say? i was young and gullible. ;)

8. You know exactly where your money is going and how it will be used to help people with MS: 60% of your donation will be used for programs, services and advocacy related to MS right in your back yard (in the southeastern US)!!

7. If you don't help out I will set my vicious attack cats on you. 
remember the bunny from
Monty Python's Holy Grail?
yeah, they are that vicious,

6. 40% of your donation will be used at the national level to support research efforts to stop disease progression, restore function, and end MS forever.

5. You will have my deep appreciation and promise that I will donate to your future fund raising efforts. 

4. Brenna likes to go to the beach with Bubbe while Poppy and I ride

3. I am less than $100 short of my $1000 fundraising goal so, now more than ever, every penny counts!

2. You will have the pleasure of reading my fabulous post-ride report detailing every dropped banana, bump in the road, and sore body part. 


1. You can feel good that you did your mitsvah (good deed) for the day, donated to a very worthy cause, helped people with MS and their families....and saved your ice for your favorite beverage

3 weeks to go...but nearly $400 short of my goal

Good morning friends and family!

I want to start by saying to thank you to all of you for not cringing (ok, maybe you did cringe) when you saw this post appear on your facebook page.

It is getting to crunch time - I have 3 more weeks until the MS 150 bike ride but still have almost $400 to raise to meet my fundraising goal. Every little bit helps!!

With your donation, not only are you helping me to meet a goal (and possibly out-fundraise my dad!) but, more importantly, your donation helps the more than 400,000 individuals and families living with MS through research, advocacy, and support.

I also want to thank all of you who have already donated to my ride. Your gift (which, by the way, is totally tax deductable) means the world to someone living with MS.

If you haven't yet donated but are planning to, please consider taking a few minutes today to go to:

  1. National MS Society, Bike MS (click on "National...");
  2. Enter my name "Rebecca Leeb" and "NC" for the state;
  3. Make a donation.
Easy-peasy lemon-squeezy!

Thank you!!
