In 2018, the MS Society released evidence-based
recommendations for vitamin D supplementation
and maintenance of vitamin D serum levels,
addressing a key need of the MS community for
information on vitamin D intake and MS.
“According to multiple studies, vitamin D deficiency is a risk
factor for MS,” says Dr. Ruth Ann Marrie, Director, MS Clinic,
Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre and a member of the
Vitamin D and MS Panel who worked on the recommendations.
They provide optimal dosing ranges for people with or at risk for
MS, and information about comorbid conditions, sun exposure,
vitamin D supplements, and food sources.

“Having these recommendations available to someone like
myself, who may be at risk of the disease, gives me hope,”
says Marie-Ève Simard, whose mother lives with MS.

Team captain’s corner
“Seeing people truly engaged in an incredible event and knowing that what we’re doing has a huge positive impact
on those affected by MS is rewarding,” says Travis Hawryluk, Team Captain of the SG Front Forks.

“As a team captain, your job is to inspire, engage, motivate, and lead to help move people from the start to finish
line. Find what drives people; their motivation will lead them to participate, raise funds, and advocate for the
cause,” Travis explains. “It’s about more than raising funds or riding a bike. It’s about watching people grow.”

Join MS Mountain Bike as a Team Captain and you will receive regular emails with helpful team tips and check-ins
from the MS Bike team.

Join top fundraisers from across Canada at the Tour of
Champions and experience the worldwide movement to end MS.
When you raise $12,500+ in 2019, you will be offered a spot on
Team Canada at the 2020 Tour of Champions.

“The Tour of Champions is an awesome experience!” says Greg
Van Tighem, Co-Captain of the Jasper Steel Panthers, who has
ridden in the Tour of Champions 6 times. “For the past 6 years,
I have been fortunate enough to be part of Team Canada, a
group of top MS Bike fundraisers representing the MS Society of
Canada. We’ve been to San Francisco, Texas, Nashville, Ocean
City, and Philadelphia, and each event has been uniquely different
and amazingly fun. This event this year is in New York City and
I can’t wait to join the team again! I highly recommend that you
kick up your fundraising efforts to the $12,500 milestone so that
you can join us next year in the Tour of Champions!”
