Red Knights ride to raise money for MDA this weekend

GREENE – The Red Knights will saddle up this weekend to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The local motorcycle club, comprised of volunteer firefighters and emergency squad members from across Chenango and Broome counties, is hosting its second annual ride to benefit the non-profit organization.



According to Jim “Radar” Ross, the group raised approximately $1,600 on its inaugural MDA ride, a poker run which took place on Father’s Day last year. Ross, a charter member of the Red Knights Chapter 40, was proud to present that check on air during the Binghamton MDA’s live telethon on Labor Day. It was a moment that was particularly poignant for the 46 year old Oxford man who, 15 years ago, was diagnosed with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSH) – a genetic, degenerative disease causes muscle weakness and wasting of facial muscles, as well as shoulders, upper arms, hips and legs.
