Beware of road bears

Although wild bears are rare and elusive within the state of Missouri, a domestic and highly spirited bipedal strain are common on both the Danforth Campus and at Washington University Medical Center. The Bear Bikers, a team of bicycling enthusiasts, raised more than $14,000 for multiple sclerosis by securing pledges and riding in the Express Scripts MS 150 Bike Tour through mid-Missouri in September. The team is made up of faculty, staff and students who ride for fun and the health benefits but also to support worthy causes. The funds raised will support research, therapeutic programs and other services for individuals living with MS. Representatives of the team are pictured below.
