Call for local riders to support biking for a cure

“We are putting out the call for bike riders to join us, as we bike for a cure and travel the beautiful state of New Hampshire. For the last sixty years fire fighters have responded to the call for help to find a cure for neuromuscular diseases and now we are asking for the public to assist us,” stated David Lang, President of the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire.

For 27 years the PFFNH and the Muscular Dystrophy Association have paired together to ride for a cure. This year’s three day bike ride begins on June 27th at the Canadian-NH boarder north of Pittsburg and ends on June 29th in Portsmouth. This 250 mile bike ride has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years for MDA and the work they do.

The Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire are asking for people to join in on this great cause and participate in this year’s Trans NH bike ride. Riders can participate in any number of days. Every amount raised helps to find a cure.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a non-profit organization sponsoring research and treatments for neuromuscular diseases. The International Association of Fire Fighters have partnered with MDA for sixty years, working together to find a cure. The IAFF is MDA’s single-largest fundraising partner through the “fill the boot” drives across the country.
