For the 17th time, our colleague Eric Lee is hopping on a bike to take on the challenge of defeating MS.
When he started for the first time in 1999, Eric thought it was a great way to join an organized and safe bike ride.
Now, more than $50,000 raised later, his commitment has brought together a team of 13 riders, nine of whom are CBS-6 station employees. It’s been a long journey, but to see how many people at our place of work are taking part, by riding, by contributing, by encouraging all of us, is a reward unto itself.
Bill Fitzgerald is riding for the third time, but unlike Eric, he has a deep and painful connection to this terrible disease. Bill’s mother-in-law died of complications from multiple sclerosis in 2012, and he joined the cause as a way to help people and families going through treatment for and care of those suffering from MS.
