I had the opportunity to cover the 2011 MS Pedal To The Point Ride. It was a really energizing experience to see so many people gather for such a good cause. The ride was a very successful event and money was raised to fund quality-of-life programs and services for people with multiple sclerosis and to fund MS-related research efforts to find a cure for this chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. The goal this year was to raise 1.4 million. I had the pleasure of meeting Patti Substelny (pictured above) who was this year's poster child and gave the send off speech. She started her team "Patti's Paladins" five years ago. If you would like to get involved with Patti's team, visit her at www.pattispaladins.com for more information.
