NJM 14 Candace Przygoda


Candace Przygoda is a long time fundraiser for the New Jersey Metro Chapter. She became involved with the chapter and MS fundraising events because of her mother, Barbara Przygoda , who was living with multiple sclerosis. Barbara was diagnosed in the early 90's with multiple sclerosis and she and Candace started participating in Walk MS. Walk MS was a great way to support her mom and help all those living with the disease.

As the years passed Candace and her mother continued to participate in Walk MS. In 2006 Candace began to experience numbness in her face. The numbness seemed to progress, spreading to her hands and upper body. Knowing what she did about MS she went directly to a doctor and was quickly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. After that diagnosis Candace made the decision to ride in the Bike MS: Coast the Coast and make that her annual event.

Candace formed Team Bugga's Bikers and the rest is history. Riding with family and friends down the coast since 2009, Candace and team raise well over $1000 each year for Bike MS! This year Candace will be the Bike MS: Coast the Coast Ambassador. "The National MS Metro Chapter does so much to help those living with MS and their families, that when you're given the opportunity to give back, it's and honor and privilege to be the 2014 Bike MS Ambassador", says Candace. "The MS Society is more than just a pretty face, it provides programs, assistance and support to those in need. I want to make sure people know what's available and who to reach out to when they need help or have questions."
