I'm fundraising for a world without MS
Hello and thanks for coming to visit my page.
My name is Conor Carey, i am a 46 years young Irish lad. I am
Married with 2 adorable kids, Aimee Rose 8 and Michael 5.I live in a small
village in east Inishowen, Co Donegal, Ireland. I was diagnosed with Primary
Progressive Multiple Sclerosis when my lttle boy was 6 months old.
I am doing Cykelnerven 2020 because I personally know that each
revolution of our wheels and cent donated goes directly to research into
Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.
Last year I was the first Irish person EVER to attempt AND
complete Cykelnerven. It was my biggest challenge to date and proudest moment,
definitely the most difficult yet rewarding event I have ever attempted. The
comrade-re between 400 cyclists that have the same goal in sight, 10 of which -like
me - were personally suffering from MS with every pedal stroke.
This year I hope to finish in the event nearer the front in the
main group as apposed to being almost Paddy Last(no pun intended).
Taking my Neurologists advice of 'Use It Or Lose It' as my
driving force I decided to try make a positive change to my life and hopefully
keep progression of my disease to a minimum whilst not going down the Disease Modifying
I decided to get fit, eat better and take great care of my
mental health, last year I was training for months for this event and I always
kept the top of Val Thorens in my which pushed me to get over the tough Finish
Line, even though most of the other competitors had completed cycle and started
cycling back downhill again. What a wonderful surprise to see my wife
waiting for me on the Finish Line...
Okay I'm not going to get rid of my leg drop and my walking
issues, brain fog, physical & mental exhaustion I experience, leg spasms
& weakness but I am definitely going to give it my best shot at staying out
of a wheelchair. I have my strong family & friends behind me to give me all
the encouragement I could ever hope for.
On June 16th, I'm taking part in one of the world's toughest
cycling challenges, the Cykelnerven.
Cykelnerven is famed as Europe’s most unique and challenging
charity cycling event. I'll be riding 400km over the toughest mountain climbs
of this year’s Tour de France.
I'm taking part in the Cykelnerven to raise money for research
and cure of Multiple Sclerosis. Please join me in the fight against MS by
contributing to my page.

Have an Absolutely Fantastic Day.
