"My name is Ryan Woodburn, I am 16 years old and will be road cycling from Hamilton Ontario to London Ontario on July 31st
in hope of raising money for the MS Society of Canada
Ryan's primary goal is to raise awareness on a disease that afflicts so many and at the same time try and raise some funds for the MS Society of Canada .... and it's personal for Ryan.
Ryan trained with our U18 team last year and will be returning this year as we look to get back to full time hockey in September.
Coach Barrett says "Ryan didn't come to the Huskies looking for donations, just for some help in getting the word out about his ride and more awareness about MS". Ryan has been a member of the Huskies "family" for a number of years and hopefully this will help his family, as mentioned, it's personal for him.

My name is Ryan Woodburn, I am 16 years old and will be road cycling from Hamilton Ontario to London Ontario on July 31st in hope of raising money for the MS Society of Canada.
In 2019 my mother was diagnosed with MS after having vision problems. This ride is very important to me because of my mom.
Multiple Sclerosis or better known as MS is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. This disease has an estimated 90,000 people suffering from it, which comes to around 12 people per day are diagnosed with MS. Out of those 90,000 people, 75% of them are women. 60% of people diagnosed with MS are between the ages of 20-49 years old.
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
