Team MRE Rides Together
Mike Short, co-founder of MRE, is an avid cyclist and friend who trained for the MS150 with Shane. One of their first century rides was the 100-mile Hotter’N Hell in Wichita Falls. They parked among hundreds of cars for the race. Shane stopped at every single rest stop, and they were the last people out on the course. When they rode over to the parking area, theirs was the last car left. “That was a long day. Mike was very patient,” Shane chuckled. They still cycle together today, but that first ride is like a distant memory for the competitive cyclist who now bikes thousands of miles a year.
National MS Society
The National MS Society funds research to find a cure for the disease. In addition, it provides counseling and many resources for families impacted by MS. At the personal level, the Society is involved in providing daily help, such as accessible transportation to enable people to get to their appointments. While MS is rare in children, the illness still strikes the young as well. To support them, the Houston chapter runs an annual camp for kids with MS.
For Shane, MS found him, and he answered the call. If a cause hasn’t found you yet, consider Bike MS. If you’ve never ridden before, set a goal that works for you. Make this your own ride. Everyone will cheer you on and support you.
Come out and join the MRE Bike MS Team for a great cause.
