The New England Classic Charity Trail Ride benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is sponsored by the Merrimack Valley Trail Riders. Due to the Covid pandemic the ride has not taken place since 2019. Since 1980, this ride has donated over Two Million Dollars, (Ninety cents of every dollar going directly to research), the average life span of a Cystic Fibrosis patient has risen from 15 to 37 years old, and the genetic code of the disease has been unlocked. A few key drugs developed help, but it is not a cure.
The event takes place on June 11th and 12th this year. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help brighten the future of thousands of children and young adults who live with this disease.
