#Move4Michael and Help Find a Cure for ALS

Michael Strasser Pushes the Pedals—and the Limits

Michael Strasser, World Record CyclistMeet Michael Strasser, one of the coolest people we know. Triathalete, ski-mountaineer and world-record-breaking cyclist, Michael crossed the entire continent of Africa, on his bike, in just 34.5 days, beating the previous record by 7 days.

Now Michael is undertaking his biggest quest to date. And Norwex is behind him with every push of his pedal.

Ice 2 Ice logoMichael’s latest challenge is called Ice2Ice, and it began in July 2018, just a few days ago. Starting in Alaska, Michael is pedaling his way from North America across the equator, to Patagonia, South America. His journey will cover more than 23,000 kilometers (14,000 miles), through hills and valleys and all kinds of terrain.

By combining “great adventure with high-performance sport,” Michael plans to beat the current Guinness World Record of 117 days and return to his native Austria with a new world record for his country.

Like Norwex Co-founders Bjorn Nicolaisen, Debbie Bolton and Gerd Doroshuk, Michael truly embodies the spirit of Norwex. He knows there are no limits or boundaries to what can be achieved when you put your mind to something. That’s just one of the reasons why Norwex is proud to sponsor him in his quest.

And just like Norwex Consultants (and Movement members) worldwide, Michael also wants to see people embrace a more eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle.

“I care a lot about the environment,” he says. “If every man and woman on earth contributes something to an ecologically friendly life, a lot would change for the better. Norwex has the right approach to that.”

On his quest, Michael also plans to raise awareness for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), or “Lou Gehrig’s disease.” We think that’s pretty cool too.

Congratulations on your adventure and thank you to Norwex for contributing funds to ALS research. I wish we had known of your challenge when we saw your motorhome in Valleyview, Alberta today. My husband suffers from ALS and we would certainly have spoken with the team and made a donation to the fund.

I was diagnosed with bulbar ALS in the summer of 2019; My initial symptoms were quite noticeable. I first experienced weakness in my right arm and my speech and swallowing abilities were profoundly affected. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help me. The medical team at the ALS clinic did even less. My decline was rapid and devastating.if it were not for the sensitive care and attention of my primary physician I would have been deceased,There has been little if any progress in finding a cure or reliable treatment. Acupuncture eased my anxiety a bit. Our primary physician recommended me to www. kycuyuhealthclinic. com and their amazing ALS treatment. My symptoms including muscle weakness, slurred speech and difficulty swallowing disappeared after 4 months treatment! The herbal treatment is a sensation.
