Country music artist Clay Walker will be heading to Humble, Texas, on March 25, for the fifth annual Band Against MS Ride.
On March 25, country music star Clay Walker’s nonprofit Band Against MS will be hosting its fifth annual Band Against MS bike ride. The ride helps to kick off the Shell Houston Open, starting and finishing at the Golf Club of Houston, near Humble in the Houston metro area. The ride benefits various multiple sclerosis programs; to date, BAMS has raised more than 4.5 million dollars to fight the disease and improve life for those who are living with it.
Walker, who founded Band Against MS in 2003 because he wanted to provide support to others living with the same disease he’s been battling since 1996, will kick off the ride with a performance of the national anthem. The ride offers cyclists three scenic route choices of 23, 32, or 67 miles, depending on rider experience and level. Registered participants will enjoy a post-ride lunch.
“This event is one of my favorite BAMS events that we hold each year as riders come out in full force to help support the charity, which is so near and dear to my heart, combining exercise and fundraising,” Walker said in a press release. “We are so fortunate to have all the support from great corporations, companies, and the fans to continue to put this event on year after year and raise money to continue to support MS research and education.”
Proceeds from the ride benefit Band Against MS, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity committed to providing educational information to and for those living with multiple sclerosis. The foundation also gives to programs researching a cure for MS and provides to programs helping those living with the disease.
Last year, the ride attracted more than 1,000 participants, and hopes to gain more this year. You can still register at the Band Against MS website.
