Miles for Smiles
A good ride for a good cause
“We will ride the whole race together because
together we are stronger.”
What it’s all about
People create amazing stuff: reusable space rockets, heart tissue grown from spinach leaves, advanced AI and so on. And yet there are still issues that, unfortunately, haven’t been solved, like how to cure multiple sclerosis.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a long-term disabling disease in which
the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged
causing communication problems between the brain and the rest of body.
On May 6, the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society organizes the MS Bike Challenge 2017. Their task is to increase the awareness and raise funds for the research of MS. This year, we would like to join this activity.
The route starts in Copenhagen and leads to the Denmark's northernmost town Skagen:

“For us, happiness and joy are fundamental human rights and in the ideal world we all have the equal opportunity to pursue our goals. Sadly, diseases like multiple sclerosis make it harder for some people. This issue is acute and we can’t ignore it.
Therefore, we will ride 737 km, from Copenhagen to Skagen, to raise funds and increase awareness about the disease. The whole race we will ride
together because together we are stronger.
You can help us create smiles on those faces that need help to do so, by supporting our ride. All money we collect will go to the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society.”
