Erica & Matt Chua: Riding for a Cause

After two and a half years on the road we are finally heading back to the U.S. for the first time, but the adventures aren’t over.  I’ll be returning home to bike across my home state of Minnesota with my family for a great cause: helping families with members suffering from multiple sclerosis. We’ll be putting on our spandex for The Ride Across Minnesota (TRAM), something I’ve wanted to do for years.  Best of all, I’ll get to do this year’s ride with my family, that I haven’t seen in 18 months, to help support other families that are struggling with this debilitating disease.

I haven’t done much training for TRAM unless you count my time in the saddle on top of this ostrich

Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body.  I have friends that have lost loved ones to this disease and know how difficult it is on the whole family. This put things in perspective for me and brings even more importance to my fundraising goals, please consider making a tax deductible financial donation by clicking on this link.

Traveling around the world has made me count my blessings and made me want to support others in need.  Please, help me help others. Together we can make a difference for all those families that are battling this difficult disease by donating to the MS Society, which helps over 17,000 families touched by MS in the Midwest.

It is easy to donate to the cause, make a difference for thousands of families, and support me in my ride across Minnesota.  You can make a tax deductible donation by simply clicking on this link and making a financial donation of any amount.  You can donate as little or as much as you want, every bit helps!  In fact, if each of our LivingIF facebook fans donated just 25 cents I would reach my fundraising goal!

Thank you in advance for your support and financial donation!
