Our first update from Ryan McCartney, our very own Noran Clinic Employee who has signed up to complete the Bike MS Challenge this summer and raise some money for a wonderful cause, dear to many of our patients!
Training has officially started! January 31st 2015 was my first outdoor training session to get back to that feeling of biking outside with the wind on my face and cool air in my lungs. While it’s still cold and snowy I’m only putting in an hour or so outdoors to compliment my stationary bike at home or at the gym, keeping a weekly goal of 5 hours per week. As we get closer I will be spending more time outside and bumping up that weekly goal – it’s all about getting a lot of good “seat time.”
Team Noran Clinic is still looking for more team members and support donations! If Team Noran Clinic can reach our goal of $1,000 in support we will be given yellow jerseys to wear during the race and will be supporting MS as Golden Gear Club members. The National MS Society makes sure that more than 79 cents out of every dollar raised goes to improve the lives of people living with MS – Help us reach our goal and stand out from the crowd while we raise awareness and support for all those living with MS!
