Team Godfather presents 1st Annual ‘Bike 4 Mike’ Fundraiser for ALS research Nov. 3

On Sunday, Nov. 3, the 1st annual Bike 4 Mike charity cycling event benefiting Team Godfather’s vision to find a cure for ALS will be held. The event will also honor beloved community member Mike Ramirez, who passed away earlier this year.  Today, more than 150 families in San Diego are facing the tragedy of ALS.

The bike tour starts and finishes at the Plaza de Mexico at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, offering distances of 10, 25, and 50 miles

Stationary spin bikes will be available for hourly classes offered by Bodyrok and Dean Grafos.

The event, which opens for registration at 6 a.m., will also include vendor booths, music, a Mexican Fiesta and Beer Garden at the finish.

In 2009, a dear member of the San Diego community, Michael Ramirez, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive disorder that destroys nerve cells that control voluntary muscle movement, and eventually causes paralysis.
