WHAT: The 32nd annual Bike MS: City to Shore Ride, presented by the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
WHO: Team CETRA will join over 7,000 cyclists and 1,000 volunteers from the Greater Delaware Valley region and across the U.S. to help create a world free of multiple sclerosis. With routes from 25 to 175 miles, the ride offers something for everyone and for all skill levels.
WHEN: Saturday and Sunday, September 29 & 30, 2012.
WHERE: Main starting location: PATCO’s Woodcrest Station in Cherry Hill, N.J. (Exit 31 off Route 295;Tindale Dr Cherry Hill, NJ 08003). Cyclists ride to the Ocean City Civic Center (5th and the Boardwalk, Ocean City,N.J.) on Saturday, where they enjoy a post-ride celebration. Two-day cyclists complete a return trip for the final finish line celebration at PATCO’s Woodcrest Station on Sunday. Other starts: Hammonton, N.J. (45-mile) and Mays Landing, N.J. (25-mile)
WHY: Team CETRA participates in Bike MS: City to Shore Ride to do something for the people who have been diagnosed. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability. In this difficult economy, the 13,000 local families affected by MS are turning to the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter in record numbers, stretching resources dangerously thin. CETRA has raised over $40,000 during the past four years and looks forward to another successful ride with a growing team!
