Team Captain Purple Pumpers Bike MS: MS 150 Minnesota 2022


I'm cycling for a world free of MS & in memory of those Purple Pumpers that have gone to dance with the angels in 2020. 

Greetings Friends!

Please join me, in finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis! I am again Captaining the Purple Pumpers this year--- our 26th year of Supporting/ Riding for MS Research! Over the years our team has raised over $185,000!- We too are the oldest friends and family team on the Minnesota MS ride!!!  Thanks to all for your dedication! Please note, I will match up to $250 in donations!  

This past year was another difficult one for our nation, world, and the team.  We have lost a couple Purple Pumpers in the past (including my brother the second year of our team). Sadly in 2020 we lost two dedicated Purple Pumpers, Pam Shaw and Ione Humann, we ride in memory of them and those who have gone before. 

I ride the MS 150 and Captain the team for all those who have MS, including some of our own team members. I too ride for the many health care workers and researchers who work hard to make a difference. In volunteering at the MS Achievement Center this past year, I was struck by the hope, the possibilities, and the difference we can all make. Having been part of this team and captain for 26 years (27 counting 2022), I consider it such a blessing and thank all who contribute, all who ride, and all who work for this important organization! 

 Thank you and God Bless You!
