Alums Jay Brandt ’99, '01, Stefano Papaleo ’94, Greg Malfitano ‘75, Jan Carlsson '94, Gareth Dunn ‘00, David Fromhold ‘07, Juan Tamayo ‘05, Stacey Bauberger ‘07 and President Ross are, for the second consecutive year, cycling in support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

 

The bike ride takes place April 17-18, 2010, beginning at the Homestead-Miami Speedway and continuing to Key Largo. Cyclists have the option of riding 50, 75, 110 or 150 miles. Proceeds from the event help fund research into the cause, treatment and management of MS.

 

Papaleo explains, “It is a worthwhile challenging event, which is full of energy; the cycle is extremely inspirational and motivational. We truly understand the importance of this charity cycle and take great pride in representing Lynn University for this great cause.” Last year Lynn had 21 riders raising $10,815.
