"Ride 4 MEE"
A Ride to Motivate, Educate and Empower those with Multiple Sclerosis
Kyle Schneider coordinated last year's successful "Ride 4 MEE" fundraiser, a 3-day, 400+ mile cycling journey from Massachusetts to Washington that raised $5,825 for the MSF. He has decided to “get the band back together” so to speak, and embark on another fundraising effort for the MS Foundation!
Joined once again by fellow cyclists Eric Olson and Dave Hallam, this year the ride will be a single day and stay within the state of Massachusetts. On August 1st, 2015 they will ride from Pittsfield, MA on the New York border in the western most part of the state to Provincetown, MA on Cape Cod which is the eastern most point of the state.
Upping the stakes from last year's average of 130 miles per day, this year's ambitious endeavor will be 244 miles non-stop (minus short breaks or the need to change a flat), testing the riders' physical and mental endurance - WOW!
In 1989, Eric's wife Tracy was diagnosed with MS and is now a Group Leader for MS in Taunton, MA. Tracy has also served since 2011 on the Greater New England chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Societies Government Relations Committee. Fellow cyclist Dave Hallam is the owner of Maggie Rosa's Bike Shop in Raynham, MA (www.maggierosa.com); Dave, who has MS, will not only provide support (following in a specially provisioned van), but will also ride part of the course when he is not behind the wheel.
All funds raised will go to support the MS Foundation, whose mission it is to Motivate, Educate and Empower those with MS. Please follow the team on Twitter @ride4mee (#ride4mee), or e-mail email@example.com for more information.
