A fellow bike racer, PSP member, friend and soon to be PSP Sergeant, Joe Ruggery, is doing the 24 hours of 7 Springs Mountain Bike Race, in Champion, PA on August 30th-31st, 2008. He is racing in the solo class, which means he will do the entire 24 hour off-road race alone. Joe is not doing the race to set any course records, or with a goal of necessarily winning the race in mind; instead, he is doing the race to raise funds for another member of PSP, Sgt Tom O’Conner, who has exhausted all of his paid leave since being diagnosed with terminal cancer last year. Please take a moment to read Joe’s Blog at http://24fortom.blogspot.com/ to learn more about Sgt O’Conner and the fundraiser that Joe has started to help the O’conner Family through this tough time.
