Support the Sydney Envirolab Team in the MS Sydney to the Gong Bike Ride
Diego Bigolin and Ryan Tombs will cycle the MS Sydney to the Gong Ride on Sunday, November 2 as part of raising much needed funds for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Over its 32 year history, the MS Sydney to the Gong Bike Ride has become one of Australia’s most iconic bike rides for such an important cause.
Participants can choose to ride the 90km long course that starts at the location of Sydney Park in the Sydney inner west suburb of St Peters. Alternatively participants can register to cycle in the shorter 58km course that starts at the southern Sydney suburb of Engadine. Both courses will provide riders with a spectacular backdrop of the Royal National Park, Sea Cliff Bridge and the coast road to Wollongong.
As a veteran, Diego has competed in a variety of cycling events in the last 25 years both internationally and abroad. This year’s Sydney to the Gong Bike Ride will be the second time that Diego participates in the event.
“It will be great to participate again in this event that’s both a fun day out and part of a serious cause for those affected by MS,” said Diego.
The event is targeting to raise $3.8 million as a grand total from a limit of 10,000 riders.
“To meet the target, our team goal is to raise $1,000 from donations and your support is much appreciated as we take on the 90km long course,” said Ryan.
We value the fact that our staff members, Diego and Ryan are involved in such an important activity operating in our community and hope that you can also support their team by contributing to this event with a donation on the Envirolab 2014 Gong Ride fundraising page.
About MS and the role of MS Society in Australia:
MS is the most common disease of the central nervous system that affects more than 23,000 Australians. Of this figure, three times as many women as men are affected by MS.
The average age of diagnosis of MS is typically between 20 and 40 years of age.
The MS Society in Australia aims to minimise the impact of MS on those affected by the disease, their families, carers and the community as a whole by offering a wide range of services, equipment and support.
The goal of the MS Society is to assist everyone affected by MS to live life to their fullest potential and secure the care and support they need, until we ultimately find a cure.
