Irondog taking on MS challenge

Jessica Ferracane, of Irondog Communications, is riding in the “Go Big or Go Home” 150-mile National Multiple Sclerosis Society cycling fundraiser Aug. 8-9 to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis research. 

Ferracane, owner and president of the Mountain View public relations firm, was diagnosed in January with MS – and is coping very well! Because she’s doing so well, and so many with MS are not, she said she is eager to join the ride and raise funds for MS research. 

While Ferracane set a goal of $1,000, she quickly exceeded that and now is gunning to double it.

It’s official: I’m biking in the 150-mile “Go Big Or Go Home” Big Island Multiple Sclerosis fundraiser, the weekend of August 8&9 to raise money to support MS research. The ride is from Hilton Waikoloa Village to Hawi the first day, and from HWV to Kailua-Kona the second day. WHEW!

Every hour of every day, someone is diagnosed with MS. That’s why I registered for the Bike MS Tour, and why I’m asking you to support my fund raising efforts with a tax-deductible donation. 

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to creating a world free from MS but they can’t do it without our help. It’s faster and easier than ever to support this cause that’s so important to me. Simply click on the link at the bottom of this message.  

Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of people with MS. I appreciate your support and look forward to letting you know how I do.
