In 2007, at the age of 64, customer Bob Wise was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He nearly died that year and his doctors at the Mayo Clinic essentially told him to settle his affairs and to do things that made him happy. Bob turned to riding his bicycle, and in the last five years, has averaged 4,000-5,000 miles per year.
This year, Bob and his team, Team Numbbutts, participated in the 2-day, 162 mile MS Wyoming Bike Ride. Bob’s wife Ellie is very involved in the fundraising side of things and also helps Bob to change out his oxygen during his ride. They are both very passionate about this cause because of close friends who are affected by MS.
Although Bob and Ellie are both battling serious health issues, they have incredibly positive attitudes and giving hearts. Thank you for being an inspiration to all of us.
