Project #23: Wichita Autumn Trails Classic MS Bike Ride
The Wichita Autumn Trails MS Bike Ride is a two-day fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year marked the 25th anniversary of the event. The 150 mile, two-day ride began and ended in Derby, with optional overnights in Winfield, and the route passed through the towns of Mulvane, Belle Plaine, and Udall. There were three route options on the first day (40, 75, or 100 mile-century). Cyclists participated as an individual or a team. An army of well-organized volunteers provided course support for the cyclists. Over 300 cyclists participate in this year’s event, and they raised over $125,000. KMAZ’s Jeff Peier continued his 25 years of support and participation, and was a featured speaker for the event’s banquet. KMAZ volunteers set up and worked a support tent, providing food and drinks for the cyclists on the course. In addition, KMAZ’s Scott Eads road the course along with Jeff’s spouse, Diane.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to ending the devastating effects of MS. Your participation will support programs, services, and research sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society that makes a huge difference to the people who must fight MS every day of their lives.
