Meet the 2015 Bike MS Ambassador Sandie Reilly

 

The New Jersey Metro Chapter is proud to introduce our Bike MS 2015 Ambassador – Sandie Reilly!

“Sandie is one of those quiet inspirations,” Mary Beth Rehrer, Director of Bike MS, said. “She doesn’t stand up and say ‘Look at me, and what I do for others.’ She just does it and makes a difference.”

“I ride because I can,” said Sandie. “And if my riding encourages just one person to stop living in fear of MS and begin living in spite of MS, then every mile, every saddle sore, every drop of perspiration will be very well spent.”
