Make Your Mark: MSA Awareness Tour 2014

Cycling to raise awareness of Multiple System Atrophy

Make Your Mark: MSA Awareness Tour 2014 is two cyclists' tribute to their father and brother Mark Versel, who died in May 2012 from a rare, fatal, untreatable neurodegenerative disease called Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). MSA robbed Mark of his mobility, so we rode our bikes from Chicago to Washington, D.C., July 4-14, 2014, in his memory and to raise funds for the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition and other MSA charities.

Our Mission

While we were on the road for 11 days in July, we passed through plenty of towns large and small. Local MSA communities planned a number of events along the way to welcome us and help spread the message about MSA,

MSA is so rare than even some neurologists go their whole careers without seeing a single case. Make Your Mark: MSA Awareness Tour 2014 is about raising awareness of MSA and helping charities that fund research and support patients and their families.

Mark Versel was a loving husband, son, brother, father and grandfather, and a friend to many. His life was cut short by this terrible disease, and we ride to honor his memory and his courage in fighting MSA.
