Tara Silberg of Jericho, NY, won’t have her Bat Mitzvah for another three years, but she is already thinking about “Mitzvahs.” Tara told us about her family bike ride to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Tara and others involved hope that by participating in the Bike MS event, everyone will become a little more aware of what MS is and how we can help those who have MS. Here is what Tara graciously shared with us about her family Mitzvah ride:
“Last October 5th, my family and I rode 30 miles for Bike MS which helps those with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that damages the nervous system. It can be deadly. But with everyone’s help, doctors can find a cure. Doing the ride was difficult for me through the pouring rain. But we toughed it out and rode with the other groups. At the end of the ride, I was so happy to be done but most importantly, I DID IT!
I was so proud of what I accomplished. It felt really good to know that it was for a good cause. Anyone can do this ride. All you need to do is raise $100 or more. I raised $500 and got cool socks, an awesome hat, and finally, a great feeling! Keep on riding…”
