Manahawkin Urgent Care’s first Bike MS: City to Shore 2014 team had a great time on the road last weekend! The team consisted of 8 cyclists and 3 volunteers all of which are employees, friends and family of Manahawkin Urgent Care. 6 of the cyclists rode the 75-mile route from Cherry Hill to Ocean City and 2 cyclists rode the 45-mile route from Hammonton to Ocean City. All in all it was a great time for a great cause. The team raised a total of $3,465.oo for the Greater Delaware valley Chapter of the National MS Society and is looking forward to next year with a bigger team and bigger goals!
