Welcome Message

BWC Members At Ride Of SilenceWelcome to the web presence of Because We Can. We are a community of cyclists with MS who have a positive outlook on life while fostering a nonjudgmental, safe and supportive environment.

Our member number one is Ron Brannigan who built the foundation of Because We Can organization upon three pillars that drive our group:

Advocacy - offering a different perspective for existing and newly diagnosed MS patients,

Community Outreach - to those individuals affected by MS by those affected with MS,

MS Visibility - spreading the word on The Movement.


Because We Can group maintains these three pillars through the coordination of meetings, rides and social events, execution of communications, web, email and brochures and fund raising.
