GTA Member Riding to End MS @WHainesATLibMS

Athena’s Will Haines, GTA’s most avid cyclist, will be riding this summer in Bike MS’s ROC the Great Lakes ride to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society. This is a charity ride, with donations helping to fund therapies for progressive and pediatric MS, and advocacy for the MS community. The society’s goal is to end MS forever.

You can help support Will through his donation page at https://mssociety.donordrive.com/participant/WillHaines

Or, for those of you feeling brave and motivated, why not join Will in participating? This year it’s back to an actual in-person, socially-distanced event. Riders who sign up for ROC the Great Lakes have an option to ride a 25 or 60 miles.  It will be held August 21, 2021 in Waterport (Lakeside Beach State Park).  More details and ride registration is here.

Keep on Ridin’, Will!

This brings us over 117,000 lbs. since we started in 2006. That’s the weight of about 61.5 fully-loaded 1982 Chevy Chevettes. This was a 700 lb increase compared to 2019. Also, some schools used their donations for their own in-school food shelf, so the totals were actually a little higher.

We have total numbers by school going back to 2010, Arcadia’s 2,458 was the 3rd most ever (behind ARHS 3,215 in 2010 and ARHS 2,954 in 2017).
