Local 1352 Valley Professional Fire Fighters Looking for Riders
The Smyelin Babes and Firefighters are looking for new riders and fundraisers!
Bike MS: 2016 Deception Pass Classic
Every September, thousands of bikers gather at the fairgrounds in Mt. Vernon, WA for the Annual Bike MS: Deception Pass Classic, a two-day ride to raise awareness and money for Multiple Sclerosis. Twelve years ago our team started out as a small group of doctors and patients from Swedish Hospital in Seattle looking to aid in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. We have grown into a team of over 55 riders strong and are continually among the top 10 fundraisers here in Washington. In the past six years alone we have raised over $850,000 in the fight against MS and created a strong bond amongst our teammates. We come from all different backgrounds and include every level of biker, from cruisers to serious road riders.
This year our team, Smyelin Babes and Firefighters, is looking for new riders and supporters with a goal to raise $75,000. Valley Professional Firefighters Local 1352 have taken the lead and Team Captains Pete Connell and Dean McAuley are looking to recruit new members to join us on a fun and challenging weekend of biking, fundraising and friendship. Thank you and we hope to see you out there.
