Cycle the Seacoast brings in $75k for American Lung Association
PORTSMOUTH - More than 350 bicyclists took to Seacoast roads this morning and raised $75,000 for the American Lung Association.
One of those riding in the "Cycle the Seacoast" event today was Eric Bergeson. He is 74 and fighting Stage IV lung cancer. His group of riders "Bergie & Friends" raised over $5,700 for the event.
"I started doing this ride even before I was diagnosed with lung cancer," Bergeson said. "I'm doing it today with my daughter."
