14th Annual ALS Express Races to Morey’s Piers
Bike riders and fundraisers from throughout the region will make their way back through the Wildwoods to Morey’s Piers on Saturday, June 16 during the 14th Annual ALS Express Bike Ride. The charitable event will raise money for the research of ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
The ALS Express is a non-competitive bike-a-thon, perfect for people of all ages and riding abilities. The event’s routes include a 10-mile, 25-mile, 50-mile and 75-mile ride through southern New Jersey with each route ending at Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, NJ.
As the “finish line,” Morey’s Piers will give all registered riders two complimentary amusement and waterpark passes. Morey’s will also host a Beach BBQ at the Rendezvous Beach Pavilion on Mariner’s Landing Pier, located at Schellenger Avenue and the Boardwalk.
Anyone interested in taking part in the Bike Ride must register by visiting www.als-express.org or by calling 215-643-5434. Registration fees are as follows: Adult rider registration - $135 through June 17, and $160 on June 18; youth rider registration for riders 13 years old and under - $100 through June 17, and $160 on June 18.
All funds raised by the 14th Annual ALS Express Bike Ride will support the research programs of the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of the ALS Association, which funds more ALS-specific research than any other non-government organization.
