Hi, my name is Laura.
I heard about the MS150 when I moved to Texas in 2001.
I thought it was amazing that people could ride their bike from Houston to Austin – that’s 182 miles on a bike in 2 days!
When I found out it was a fundraiser for the National MS Society, I knew I had to do it!
My Dad taught me to ride my bike when I was a kid.
It was fun! Dad rode up and down the driveway on his bike next to me, holding the back of my purple banana-seat bike so I wouldn’t fall over. Now that’s talent! I was so proud when I was finally able to ride myself.
My sisters and I rode all over the farm together.
Dad was diagnosed with MS in 1988. I was in 6th grade.
What a great gift it was that Dad taught me to ride.
Now I can ride my bike to help my Dad.
This is my fifth year riding the MS150.
If you have never donated before, please consider even a small
$5.00 donation to honor my committment and my dad!
Many thanks for all you have done!
Me at age 5 – I loved riding bikes!
My Dad with one of his granddaughters – aren’t they sweet!
This is why I ride.
I finally got a road bike and I love it!
Here I am with my dad.
This is with my friend, Roland, who has MS. We are at the 2007 awards ceremony in Houston. Roland has received many benefits from the advancement in treatment of MS. He used to be in a wheelchair, but thanks to research, he is walking again.
We are 'Rollin' for Roland'!
During the 2008 Hurricane Ike evacuation, I got some training in with my nieces and nephew.
Emma and Aubrie had fun riding Aunt Laura's big girl bike!
Haylee pretty much leaves me in the dust!
Landon isn't quite ready to ride but he is cheering us on!
