(AP) _ Organizers say a record number of cyclists participated
in Vermont's largest charity ride. Over 750 riders, including 25
hand cyclists, helped to raise $300,000 for adaptive athletes and
ski racing safety on Saturday, Sept. 7.
The Kelly Brush Century Ride was started by the Middlebury
College ski team as a way to raise money to buy a mono-ski for team
member Kelly Brush Davisson, who was paralyzed as the result of a
ski racing crash.
The money raised is used to help athletes with spinal cord
injuries purchase specialized sports equipment.
