Help fight MS,

donate to Salazar

GC VILLAGE — Grand Canyon resident Dave Salazar will hop aboard his bicycle on Nov. 3-4 for the 2001 SRP MS150 “Best Dam Bike Tour,” the annual noncompetitive ride and fund-raising event to fight multiple sclerosis.

Salazar, meat cutter at Canyon View Marketplace, seeks donations from the local community. The money will go toward MS research.

Grand Canyon resident Shirley Robinson was diagnosed with MS, a chronic and often disabling disease of the central nervous system. MS affects about 300,000 people in the United States and about 6,000 in Arizona and southern Nevada alone.

Salazar and scores of other cyclists will pedal 156 miles from Phoenix through Estrella Mountain Park and over the Gillespie Dam to Gila Bend.

Salazar's appearance in the fund-raising race will be his 15th.

For those who would like to donate to the cause, there is still time. Salazar said donations are accepted up until the time of the race and even a few weeks after.

To donate, see Salazar at Canyon View Marketplace in the village.
