Cross-country bike ride is medical fundraiser
By Matt Porter | email@example.com
SPRINGFIELD -- Two people are riding across the country for a special cause. They're riding bikes for Gabe Griffin. The 9-year old boy suffers from Duchenne's disease. It's a type of muscular dystrophy which destroys muscle function over time. Most people with the disease aren't expected to live into their 20's. The two are raising awareness and money for research. They hope new drugs can make a difference.
