Think you can’t do the MS Snowmobile Tour? Think again.

“When someone you love has MS, the search for a cure never ends, or even rests, thus, the fundraising must also never end. Our Lisa has MS. And she’s the biggest concern for our whole family,” said Betty Panek, explaining that her daughter’s diagnosis led Betty and her husband, Stan, to join the MS Snowmobile Tour.
 
 “I love snowmobiling and was looking forward to everything about it,” Betty described. Then Stan had heart bypass surgery.
 
“He healed, and got back to normal, but was told not to snowmobile this year,” Betty said. “That meant he wouldn’t be with me for the most difficult (also exciting) snowmobiling you could imagine. WHAT IF I COULDN’T KEEP UP? Last year one of the guys said to me ‘Grama, you really kick butt!’ Now I have a reputation to uphold.”
 
Betty convinced herself she couldn’t do it, but she didn’t have the nerve to officially withdraw.
 
“And the day of the ride I found myself on my machine, using EVERYTHING I had to do EVERYTHING right. I’m doing it, really doing it!”
 
Betty also discovered several “handsome young men” were keeping an eye on her to make sure she was doing okay. That left Betty to only have to “watch out for moguls and snow devils and ‘get some air.’
 
“When the ride was over, I felt a strong urge to tell everyone that ‘old age’ is not so bad after all,” Betty said. “Just hang on tight and go.”
