Team MPS- 2018 Million Dollar Bike Ride

Children like Faith, age 2, MPS I, need your help to find a cure.
Please Help to Make a Difference!
All donations will be matched dollar for dollar up to $50,000 for this event! The opportunity will bring in an astonishing $100,000 for MPS and ML specific research if we can motivate our contacts to contribute to our goal.

Please make a donation today, and share this link with friends and family and through social media. Our timeline is short, but we can do this together! Donate $5, $10, $20 - every gift is valuable.
Research Funding: National MPS Society
The National MPS Society exists to cure, support and advocate for MPS and ML. Since 1974, the Society has advanced its mission by funding promising research projects, student fellowships, and clinical trials at a number of prestigious university centers throughout the world. Such projects have led to critical breakthroughs in finding treatments for these diseases. The Society collaborates with other LSD patient support groups and family research foundations in funding research and supports periodic technical conferences, allowing researchers to collaborate and discuss their findings, which benefits the larger rare disease community. Although great strides have been made in research, sponsors are urgently needed to accelerate the encouraging research that is bringing therapies - and ultimately the cures - to children and adults with MPS and ML.
Double Your Donation
The National MPS Society is taking advantage of this exciting opportunity to DOUBLE the amount of funds we raise to invest in MPS and ML research. Please join us in this important endeavor by donating towards this event using the Donate Now! Button above and, if possible, by joining in the ride at the event in Philadelphia.

Help Raise Funds for Desperately Needed MPS and ML Research
Those affected by MPS and ML have no cure. There are treatments for some, but more and better treatments are needed! There is no time to lose. Your donation will help fund research in the search for the cures! A little can go a long way - each dollar raised up to $50,000 will be doubled through a matching grant!
