MobilityWorks of PA & NJ to Participate in the 2014 Bike MS: City to Shore Ride 9/27-9/28/14
Bike MS is a series of 100 extraordinary cycling events held across the county — rides that take participants further than they’ve ever gone before! The Bike MS events inspire camaraderie, personal accomplishment, and the knowledge that participants are helping to change the lives of people with MS. As a great personal challenge and achievement that any rider can experience, Bike MS is both a weekend-long and lifelong opportunity to make a difference in one’s own life, as well as in the world!
In 2013, more than 100,000 cyclists raised over $80 million dollars to help create a world free of MS!!! On Saturday, September 27th and Sunday, September 28th, MobilityWorks will be a part of the 2014 Bike MS: City to Shore Ride.
Named by Bicycling Magazine as the “Best Cycling Getaway in NJ”, the Bike MS: City to Shore Ride promises to be one of the best cycling experiences on the East Coast. Participants can choose from several routes ranging from 25-100 miles and bike over either one or two days. Participants will cycle through the quaint towns and back roads of Southern New Jersey, eventually ending their ride in historic Ocean City, NJ. For more information, please visit the National MS Society website.

"Our veterans look forward to this event every year"
Working with Operation Injured Soldiers, The Michigan Ontario Muskie Club, and BraunAbility, MobilityWorks is helping to take 90 active duty and disabled veterans out for a day of muskie ﬁshing on Lake St Clair this Sunday, August 24th. The 6th Annual Musk-E-Meet will depart at the Detroit Yacht Club located on Belle Island northeast of downtown Detroit Michigan on the Detroit River. A large group of boat captains and their veteran guests will be venturing off into U.S. and Canadian waters in search of the big game fish.
With your help, we can continue our program in “thanking” our Active Duty and Disabled Veterans for the sacriﬁce they have made for us. For more information or to help with sponsoring a veteran, contact the Michigan Ontario Muskie Club by email at DIRECTOR@LSCMOMC.COM.

Tony Bandermann behind bars at the Sacramento MDA Lock-up
Another person from MobilityWorks has become a Muscular Dystrophy Association Jailbird!
Here is Tony Bandermann behind bars at the Sacramento MDA Lock-up. His "bail" is set for $1600, which is enough money to send two kids to camp.
At MDA camp, kids with neuromuscular disease discover a world created specifically for them, and meet many other kids sharing the same needs and experiences. MDA campers dream about summer camp all year and often say it’s better than Christmas; some even say it’s changed their lives. Almost all campers agree that it’s "the best week of the year."
MDA camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience, along with opportunities to engage in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, swimming, adaptive sports, arts and crafts, camp dances and much more. In addition to all of the fun and friendship it offers, MDA camp enables campers to stretch their comfort zones and grow in independence as they spend a week away from home; permit someone other than their parents to provide personal care; and make new friends. If you talk to MDA campers, they’ll tell you the real benefits come in a much subtler form — the lifelong friendships, the increased self-esteem and confidence, and the chance to spend at least one week of the year in a place where physical disabilities are the norm rather than the exception.
