St Nicholas Parishioner Goes the Mile

St Nicholas Parishioner Goes the Mile

Recently, Neil Dragovich finished something very important to him. As we all know, (or not, but that’s okay) Neil loves to ride his bicycle. He heard of a big charity ride called bike MS:Pedal to the Point and since then he has wanted to ride it. In two days, Saturday, August 3rd and Sunday, August 4th he rode a total of 175 miles and raised over $1100 in our parish’s name for people with Multiple Sclerosis, or MS.
Neil, the bike MS group, and everyone with MS would like to thank those who made this all possible. “It took a lot of energy, sweat, perseverance, prayers, hugs and Gatorade but it was worth it” Neil said. He plans to do it next year again. If anyone wishes to join the St. Nicholas Riders, Neil can be found on Facebook or at Liturgy on Sundays at St Nicholas in Barberton OH. There are many levels to the ride so anyone can join.
Also, not only did Neil help people with MS, but did also help himself take one step closer to Paradise by offering prayers along the whole route. He said “The first 165 miles were for everyone else, the last 10 were purely selfish. Mainly, ‘Dear God, please help me finish. Don’t let me stop.’” He did.
