Several Stafford County Middle School Coaches--including Shirley Heim's own Football and Wrestling coaches, Eric Santhuff and Mark Lacy--will be biking up to 200 miles in order to raise money in support of the National MS Society. Bike MS is a fundraising ride that changes the world for people affected by multiple sclerosis. MS is a devastating, unpredictable disease. But Bike MS is going to fund cutting-edge MS research and critical services to ensure people affected by MS have the resources they need to live their best lives. If you would like to support their ambitious goal please go to mssociety.donordrive.com and search for "Stafford Coaches for a Cause."
