A team of 33 riders from the Baltimore and Washington offices of law firm Ballard Spahr cycled more than 100 miles and raised nearly $33,000 at the fourth annual Susan G. Komen Maryland Promise Ride June 22 at South River High School in Edgewater.
The Ballard Spahr team, which consisted of firm lawyers, staff, friends, family and clients, is organized each year by firm partner Desmond D. Connall Jr. He participates in the event to honor of his late wife, who died of breast cancer in 2014. The team has raised more than $150,000 in the four years it has participated in the Maryland ride.
The event featured 10-, 35-, 67- and 100-mile routes which began and ended at South River High School and ran through country roads in southern Anne Arundel County. The ride was fully supported by SAG vehicles, police and motorcycle guides and participants enjoyed a pre-race breakfast and a post-ride celebration at the start/finish site. Cyclists also enjoyed themed rest stops throughout the coursrs at every 12 to 15 miles on the long routes and halfway on the 10-mile route.
