Ray Spooner (husband, father, grandfather, midwife, cycling enthusiast and fundraiser) was diagnosed with ALS in 2014. After the initial shock Ray decided to fulfill his dream to ride his bike across the US to bring awareness and raise funds to find a cure for ALS. It was clear his efforts would not benefit him but those in the future that would receive the same devastating news. Shortly before his death last summer a friend asked Ray if he would be ok with an annual bike ride in his name that would continue to benefit his cause to raise funds for MDA. He smiled and texted that he liked the idea.
