The Transmontana snowmobile charity ride will celebrate 20 years of riding and raising money for multiple sclerosis.

The 2010 ride is coming right up and will once again benefit the Northwest Region of the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.

Sponsored by the Montana Snowmobile Association and supported by Teva Neuroscience, this year the ride expands to seven days and will cover seven different riding areas in Montana. The ride begins Jan. 16 in Ennis, goes to Lincoln the next day, Seelely Lake the next, followed by Missoula, Big Fork, Kalispell and ends Jan. 22 in Eureka, where an awards banquet will be held that evening.

The proceeds from the ride will help fund programs to ease the challenges of individuals in Montana with multiple sclerosis and their care partners. Among the services offered are distribution of equipment, educational seminars, social events, assistance with MRIs, cooling program, toll-free helpline, networking program and life coaching.

If you're unable to participate in the ride, you can also simply make a pledge.
