Good afternoon Steve,
I Hope this message finds you well. On behalf of the 18,000 people in Michigan living with MS, I want to thank you for all of your hard work at our 2008 Bike MS Mid Michigan Ride. In 2008, Bike MS raised over one million dollars to create a world free of multiple sclerosis and we are committed to making 2009 even greater. We know from experience that there is no way we could have done it without you because HAM radio support is essential for a safe and smooth Bike MS event.
The planning for Bike MS 2009 is now in full swing and we are hoping that you and your team will join us once again. I’m not sure if your have already received the dates for the 2009 Bike MS: West Michigan Ride but it is scheduled for June 13 and 14, 2009. We are planning to use the same route and facilities that we used in 2008 but we plan to add few shorter routes to accommodate riders of different skill levels. The new routes will utilize existing facilities so there will not be too much that is new. Once again, we will have 7 SAGS, 6 medical vehicles and 7 rest stops on each day.
To assist us in planning for the event, please respond to this email so that I know it was received. In addition, please let me know if you believe you will be able to support us in 2009. I understand that may not know the size of your team until the information is presented to you group; therefore, do not worry about having all of the details at this time. Lastly, please let me know if any of your contact information has changed since last year.
In the meantime, please visit our Bike MS website at http://bikemig.nationalmssociety.org for additional information. We are still finalizing some of the route details and I will send you the maps as soon as they are available.
Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns. Once again, thank you very much for your help and we are looking forward to working with you on Walk MS 2009.
