Bike MS in SM = Beer + Bikes for a Cause

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.

As the summer winds down, it’s important to remember that there’s still a lot of good reasons -and even better causes - to get outside. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to kick back and just enjoy a beer either, does it? Well, if you’d like to give back, get out, and grab a drink while you’re at it, then consider Tuesday’s Bike MS at the Library Ale House on Main Street in Santa Monica.

Not only is the National Multiple Sclerosis Society doing really great work in educating and assisting those among us who have become afflicted with such a heartbreaking autoimmune disease, it is also the largest supplier of funding for advanced MS research in the entire world. As a non-profit, the MS Society routinely holds fundraisers like Bike MS in order to raise money and intelligence on an issue that, frankly, not a lot of people want to think about. But enough about why giving back is important, let’s drink some beer in the sun!
