Off The Clock: National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Larry Wasser of Harrisburg, shown here, is in his 30th year of cycling to fight MS and is preparing for the Mason-Dixon Challenge in Gettysburg in October to benefit the Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter of the National MS Society. Wasser got started when a work colleague's spouse was diagnosed with MS and was inspired to help, having just begun bicycling. Over the years, he has built a fundraising group, Team Mountain Side, and even rode for a few years with a multiple sclerosis patient who inspired the team even more. Wasser writes, “As I have aged, the rides have gotten more difficult, but I remember why we ride and the suffering that MS patients have to endure, that makes the ride easier.”
Giant Food Stores announced a $100,000 donation to the Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness in Lewisburg, to support its children's programming. The nonprofit Miller Center, a 96,000-square-foot center in Union County, fosters a multidisciplinary approach to community health and fitness through wellness programs, activities, events and partnerships. The center is adjacent to the Giant store in East Buffalo Township. The presentation, above, included Giant associates, members of the Miller family, and Miller Center board members.
