LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - 270 people signed up to ride bikes to raise money to support the fight against multiple sclerosis on Sunday afternoon. Organizers of the annual "Rockin' Hot Ride" said the great turnout was boosted by the amazing weather we had in Arkansas.
Our own Dawn Scott was among the bikers who competed. She was not only helping raise funds but taking a chance to get ready for the Big Dam Bridge 100.
All the support is showing up in medical advances made against multiple sclerosis in the last two decades.
"25-years ago there were zero disease modifying therapy treatments for people with M.S. and now there's over a dozen," said Leah Weatherl, Vice President of Bike M.S.
Weatherl said the money raised from these bike rides can now be used to fight the more progressive forms of the disease.
