Lee cyclist raises nearly $30,000 to fund American Cancer Society

MARLBOROUGH — A cyclist from Lee has gone the extra mile to fight cancer — 1,000, in fact.

Each year, for the past 10 years, Ned Moore has biked a 100-mile course from Marlborough to Nashua, New Hampshire and back again as part of the American Cancer Society’s annual Bicycles Battling Cancer event.

To participate, riders commit to raising a minimum of $300 as a way to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease, raise awareness about reducing cancer risk and honor survivors.

Over the weekend, Moore was met by family members at the finish line at Hillside School in Marlborough as he pedaled his 1,000th mile, according to Theresa Freeman, director of communications for the Northeast region of the American Cancer Society Inc.

“(I’m) tired and a little beat up,” said Moore describing what six-and-a-half hours on a bicycle was like, following the race.
