Cyclists Gear Up To Fight MS In Windsor
WINDSOR, Conn. — The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter is gearing up to host the 27th annual Bike MS: bkm/Steelcase Ride, Sunday, June 1, at Griffin Center in Windsor, Conn.
Cyclists select from two-, 10-, 25-, 50- or 100-mile routes. WTNH News Channel 8 Good Morning Connecticut anchor Darren Kramer will again serve as grand marshal for the event.
More than 6,000 Connecticut residents are affected by multiple sclerosis (MS), a potentially debilitating disease affecting the central nervous system. The cause is unknown and, as a result, there is currently no cure for MS. Connecticut residents can help end the devastating effects of MS. The 2007 Windsor ride raised a record-breaking $301,000 and attracted more than 550 cyclists. The chapter hopes to raise $645,000 this year between the two rides.
Funds raised through participation in chapter events, such as the Bike MS: bkm/Steelcase Ride, ensure ongoing scientific research to find a cure and provide for the continuation of vital programs and services offered by the chapter to those in Connecticut affected by MS.
Pre-registration for the ride is preferred. To register online go to http://www.ctfightsms.org/. On-site registration begins at the following times:
6:30 a.m. for the 100-mile route. Start time is scheduled for 7 a.m.
The registration fee is $35, with a $125 fundraising minimum per rider. The ride will take place rain or shine, and includes a finish-line barbecue. Volunteers are needed for set-up, rest stop duties, photography and clean-up.
