Ryan's commitment to the community is best illustrated through his work with the ziMS Foundation, which he founded in 2006, his first full season in the Major Leagues. The ziMS Foundation aims to raise money for awareness and programs benefitting those afflicted with multiple sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease quite close to Ryan's heart. In 1995, his mother Cheryl was diagnosed with MS, a chronic and unpredictable disease that affects the central nervous system.
Serving as president, Ryan is actively involved in making decisions and donates his time, money and image to promoting the Foundation. Though it remains staffed entirely by volunteers, including friends and family, the foundation surpassed $1.5 million in donations for MS charities and research.
