Pure Cycle raises money for MS patient

CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) — A lot of calories were burned and money raised at a spinning event on Sunday to benefit a Canfield woman diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Pure Cycle in Canfield put together a spinning charity ride for one of its members.

Koreen Burrow was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1991. She and her husband David bike around the country for the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

At the fundraiser, supporters paid $20 to ride. The event also included a Chinese auction and 50/50 raffle.

Burrow said her goal is to raise funds for a cure and ride for those who can’t.

“We travel around and ride in a bike MS event in every state. So, we’ve done 29 states so far, 21 to go. Hoping to do 8 or 10 this year,” said Burrow.

“They’re sweating out all of their stress, all of the horrible week. They’re letting it all out on the bike. And they’re doing the best for a good cause,” added spinning instructor Candace Heinbaugh.

Pure Cycle had a goal to raise $5,000 and they nearly tripled that amount.  All of the proceeds will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.
