Team Sozo originated as a cycling team from Lake Norman, North Carolina and is dedicated to creating awareness and fundraising for the purpose of finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.  Sozo is Greek meaning “to save a suffering one, one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health”. In 2021, Team Sozo expanded into Illinois and Missouri, riding in BikeMS events across these states to bring this awareness to life. Check out our various teams and join us as we ride to find a cure for those who suffer from this disease.  We also participate in rides for Cancer Research as well as Hunger Relief as we feel that through our efforts, we can bring awareness and hope for many.

Illinois Team Story and Pics

Our midwestern outpost of Team Sozo is made up of one rider with MS, close friends of more than 30 years, and a medical professional.  A few years ago, our friend revealed that he had been diagnosed with MS and had begun to participate in Bike MS events.  We have supported his rides financially over the years, but as we became more active cyclists we decided to join him as riders, too.  None of us had ridden anywhere close to the 50 distance to which we committed.  Training for Bike MS has enabled us all to get in better shape and enjoy healthier lifestyles.  We are from 3 different states, so participation in Bike MS events has given us the opportunity to spend more time together.  Collectively, we want to beat MS, enable research and critical services, and raise awareness.  Of course we do.  But more importantly, we want to support our friend and assure him that he doesn’t have to face this challenge alone.
