Charity ride raises $300k for adaptive sports

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Organizers say a record number of cyclists participated in Vermont's largest charity ride this past weekend.

Over 750 riders, including 25 hand cyclists, helped to raise $300,000 for adaptive athletes and ski racing safety on Saturday.

The Kelly Brush Century Ride was started by the Middlebury College ski team as a way to raise money to buy a mono-ski for team member Kelly Brush Davisson, who was paralyzed as the result of a ski racing crash.

The money raised is used to help athletes with spinal cord injuries purchase specialized sports equipment.
