About the Wells Fargo MS Team Help the Wells Fargo Bike MS Team in the Fight Against MS! John Brown, Daniel Dunn, Heather Keiter and Larry Kelley are our co-captains. The number of people living with multiple sclerosis increases every hour of every day. This astonishing rate is not going to diminish, nor will it stop, until we've found a cure. Research has made some incredible advances recently, but the world can still only offer disease management drugs and therapies to the 400,000 people living with MS in America. We've formed a team for the MS Bike Ride because we know that riding for one weekend is nowhere near as difficult as confronting a lifetime with multiple sclerosis. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society gives us all reason to hope, though. In addition to supporting novel research projects around the globe, they also provide much needed education, programs, and services to everyone who is affected by MS - including the diagnosed, their friends and families, and the healthcare professionals who work with them. Many of the Wells Fargo Bike MS Team riders, are personally touched by MS via our family members, friends and colleagues whom are afflicted. We've supported them through their struggles and will continue our support on this ride! Join our team as a cyclist or a volunteer! Family, friends and colleagues may join our team! Make a donation online! Send in a check! Talk to your employer about becoming a sponsor of the MS Bike Ride! There are so many ways to make a difference in the fight against MS, and it all begins right here. Thank you for supporting MS and the Wells Fargo Bike team!
