HOLLAND, Mich- Hundreds of people came out the past two days to “Pedal Toward A Cure” for Multiple Sclerosis.

Riders had two different routes on Saturday and Sunday that took them along the Lake Michigan shoreline. On Saturday riders went from Holland to Saugatuck and back. Then on Sunday the riders biked all to just south of Grand Haven along the shoreline and then back to Holland where riders enjoyed a BBQ dinner.

Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.1 million people worldwide.
