HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Hundreds of cyclists set off on a 75-mile trek from Varina High School to Williamsburg Saturday for the annual Bike MS: Colonial Crossroads ride to raise awareness and money to help those who live with multiple sclerosis.

This year cyclists had the option to start their ride from from Henrico, Williamsburg or Smithfield. Some cyclists will spend the night in Williamsburg before setting off again Sunday to return to their respective start lines.

Anchors Bill Fitzgerald and Leland Pinder, along with WTVR CBS General Manager Stephen Hayes and Assistant News Director Misti Davidson, friends and family members, worked hard to raise money for multiple sclerosis research, programs and educational opportunities for people living with the disease.

According to organizers, nearly 500 participants raised (at last check) $594,000 for research that will hopefully change lives and end MS. The WTVR CBS 6 team raised more than $31,100 this year.

Bike MS is the largest fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. There is still time to make a difference. Click here to make a donation.
