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.

We urge you to join this worthy cause and know that when you see us out on the road, we’re going the extra mile to help eradicate MS.
