Inaugural Silver Valley Ride to Defeat ALS Coming June 28

The Inaugural Silver Valley Ride to Defeat ALS will be held on Saturday, June 28 at the Snake Pit Resort in Enaville, Idaho. This new, one-day cycling event will help raise funds to fight ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The ride is sponsored by Hecla Mining Company and the Evergreen Chapter of the National ALS Association.

The Silver Valley Ride, one of only eight ALS Association sanctioned cycling fund-raising events across the country, has come about from one woman's fight against ALS, Cindy Moore, a mining engineer for Hecla who was diagnosed with ALS in 2010 at age 50, and the deep devotion to the cause from her family, friends and long-time employer, Hecla Mining Company.

The ride is family-friendly and takes place along the scenic Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. Participants can choose from two ride distances-27.2 or 42.6 miles-however, participants may turn back at any point in the ride. Several crewed refreshment stops, volunteers, and a safety team will be present along the route. The ride is open to anyone 12 years or older, and children under 12 years can participate as a ride-along with an adult, if riding on a tandem, trailer, or tag-along bike.
