Well-known bicycle road racer Tyler Hamilton and team MS Global will be in Moab from Sept. 23-30 raising funds for families living with someone with multiple sclerosis.

The team features 36 riders, including nine who live with MS, who will each bike 300 miles in an effort to raise more than $210,000.

The organization Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, a national nonprofit based in Avon, Colorado, will benefit from the fundraiser. The organization delivers health and wellness education programs for families with MS.

Hamilton will appear at an event at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at Moab Bike Fiend, 69 E. Center Street. The free event will include appetizers and beverages.
