|Colorado's MS-150, part 2|
by Stormy on June 29, 2008
Multiple sclerosis strikes thousands of people around the world. It is a disease associated with technological countries and as being related to the immune system.
The return ride from the Colorado State University in Fort Collins to the Front Range Community College in Westminster was an adventure that could easily rival the first day. Sunday was a much hotter day than Saturday and many more of the riders needed assistance surviving the ride. Water and sun screen were a valuable commodity and personnel at the rest stops work feverishly to accommodate all the riders. For some reason Sunday was also a much more prevalent day for road rage incidents and there were several cyclist injuries that required police and medical attention. Someone commented how sad it was that people had to risk their lives in order to contribute to a charity. The course back was mostly the same as the course out, but a couple of variations were introduced and there were plenty of hills for the riders to overcome on their way back. The initial estimates placed the amount raided in this event at about $2.9 million. This is rather phenomenal. With any luck a cure will be found in the near future!
