My aunt has MS, so my mom holds several fundraisers to help find a cure. MS is short for multiple sclerosis, and it's a disease of the immune system.

Once a year, my mom does a bike tour with her friends to raise money. She and her friends could ride up to 150 miles (if they want to). She leaves from the Elks Club and rides on Long Island.

She also sells baked goods like cookies and brownies in Southampton Village. Sometimes my sister, my dad and I help. Also, my mom does what she can to help my aunt and to help find a cure.

The next bike tour isn't until Sept. 7, but you can find out more about other fundraising events by visiting
