GODFREY - Some 2,000 cyclists are setting out to raise $1.7 million to make a difference in the lives of nearly 1 million Americans living with multiple sclerosis.
Cyclists will ride up to 200 miles over 2 days. Bike MS: Gateway Getaway will depart from Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 7 and conclude back in Godfrey on Sept. 8. The ride will feature scenic views of the Great River Road on Day 1 for the 75- and 100-mile routes. Local celebrity and MS advocate Charles Glenn will kick off Bike MS by singing the national anthem at the starting line, just like he has many times for the Stanley Cup championship team the St. Louis Blues.
