Clay Walker Announces 2016 Band Against MS Ride
Clay Walker will host his fourth annual Band Against MS Ride in Humble, Texas, this March.
In partnership with Walker's non-profit organization Band Against MS (BAMS), the ride will start and finish at the Shell Houston Open PGA Tournament location on March 26. Registration is still open for those interested in participating in the ride.
“This event holds a special place in my heart because it combines two of my favorite things, cycling and raising awareness about multiple sclerosis,” Walker says in a press release. “Over the last three years all of the people who have taken a part in the ride have expressed their gratitude for this event and I am so excited we are able to do it again this year.”
Over a thousand people have participated in the Band Against MS Ride over the past four years. The ride itself offers several route options so that riders at all levels will be able to take part. Walker will begin the ride with a performance of the National Anthem. Afterwards, a lunch will be provided for riders.
Proceeds from Band Against MS Ride will benefit Band Against MS, Inc., which is a non-profit that is "committed to providing educational information for those living with Multiple Sclerosis, funding programs researching a cure for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and funding programs helping those living with the disease."
Walker has battled with MS since 1996. He founded Band Against MS in 2003 in hope to provide support to others suffering with the disease.
