Cyclist with disabilities raises funds for multiple sclerosis

Harvey Dawkins, 44, who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, has made it his mission to raise funds for multiple sclerosis by riding his bike in fundraisers in New Jersey, Florida, Georgia and Texas, and he plans to start a nonprofit to allow him to participate in fundraisers in all states. Dawkins, who rides his bicycle 70 miles a week, became interested in raising funds for the disease because of a co-worker who has multiple sclerosis. "The way I see it, if one person can help another person, we can get pretty far," Dawkins said. Burlington County Times (Willingboro, N.J.)
