HOUSTON - Looking for something fun to do this weekend?  Come on out and join multi-platinum selling country star Clay Walker who will be hosting his annual Band Against MS Ride in Houston on Saturday, February 1, 2014.

In 2013, the ride hosted close to one thousand riders who participated to support MS. Proceeds from this year's ride will benefit Band Against MS, a non-profit committed to providing educational information for those living with Multiple Sclerosis, funding research and other programs to help those living with the disease.

Clay Walker founded Band Against MS in February 2003 because he wanted to provide support to others living with the same disease he has been battling since 1996. Rather than dwell on what he couldn't do, he chose to focus on getting the most out of everything he still has. "I just feel so grateful I can do things like play the guitar, dance, and sign autographs. I think I appreciate every show more than I used to because I know it could all be taken from me. I don't want to waste even one day," Clay explained.

About the Ride

The ride begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, February 1 at Houston Oaks Country Club & Family Sports Retreat located at 22602 Hegar Road, Hockley, TX 77447. Route options include 13, 27, 45, and 60 miles.

The Band Against MS Ride will feature a special guest appearance by Counry Star Clay Walker.
