“Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon”
The Fight Against Multiple Sclerosis – How 1,710 cyclists raised 1.34 million dollars in 1 weekend!
It seems unbelievable but it is indeed true.
And we also want to do a little bragging while we’re at it.
Riding 150 kilometers in extremely hot temperatures (but hey, they weren’t complaining) our Spokes & Folks members (27 of them) raised an astounding $14,000 to help fight MS. It’s no wonder they won the Best Team Spirit award – coveted by the 133 teams in the MS Gear Ride.
Our oldest rider is 67 and our youngest (2 of them) are 10! Despite the heat, everyone displayed amazingly cheerful and cooperative spirits. Just two flat tyres and one “wonky knee” according to Captain Robert’s damage report.
