Team Michael Best Rides For Leukemia Cure

Annual Ride Raises Over $300,000

Milwaukee, WI – On Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24, Team Michael Best braved the 90-plus degree temperatures and participated in the 13th Annual Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour, a 150 mile bike ride to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Riders from the law firm of Michael Best & Friedrich were Paul Lucey and his son, Alan, John Finerty, Tim Burkard, and Roberta Matula. The Michael Best riders raised over $2,800 for research into and treatment of leukemia and related cancers. In all, some 600 Scenic Shore riders raised over $300,000.

“It’s an honor to ride with so many teams who are supporting family members who are patients, or who ride in memory of friends or family members,” said Lucey, a business litigation and bankruptcy partner at Michael Best, who was also a participant in last year’s ride.

This is the fourth charity ride that Team Michael Best has participated in this summer, the others being the Miller Lite Ride for the Arts, the Trek100 Ride for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer and the River Valley River Edge Nature Center Ride.
