How can you help fight Multiple Sclerosis? Well, the simplest way is by purchasing a shirt from local t-shirt brand Passing Left. When you order one of their special edition Bike MS shirts, they will be donating a portion to the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. Two colors of the shirt above can be bought right here!
The shirt sale corresponds with next month’s Bike MS:Escape to the Lake ride. The 150 mile ride , which both of us at City Creative are doing, supports the fight against MS. We are riding to raise money for the cause, and if you’d like to donate to our fund you can donate here. Any amount helps get us to our goal…even a dollar!
From Passing Left:
PassingLEFT is pleased to announce our first community outreach project benefiting the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. MS is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.
The Western PA Chapter of the National MS Society is a community of individuals who want to do something about MS now! Founded in 1956, the Chapter is committed to providing quality programs and services to an estimated 7,300 Pennsylvanians affected by MS. Serving 26 counties in Western Pennsylvania, the Western PA Chapter also raises money to fund cutting edge research into the cause and cure of MS.
On June 11 and 12, the Western PA Chapter is hosting an “Escape to the Lake” biking event which takes approximately 1600 cyclist 150 scenic miles through Western PA. In honor of this extraordinary event, PassingLEFT and the Western PA Chapter have teamed up to offer a special edition shirt with 25% of the proceeds going towards the fight against MS. The color combinations available are brown shirt/turquoise ink and blue shirt/white ink. Shirts are made-to-order; see details below.
MS does not discriminate and neither do we. Even if you are not from the Western PA area or riding in the event, you can still look awesome wearing this shirt!
