State senator Michele Brooks, Borough of Greenville manager Jason Urey and members of the offices for state representatives Mark Longietti and Parke Wentling were joined by officials from the Pittsburgh-based Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Thiel College (https://www.thiel.edu/
"I am so happy Thiel has opened its doors," Brooks said. "This is an example of (Thiel College's) community-minded focus."
Pfeiffer said the event averages between 400 and 600 riders each year and is usually staffed by another 200 volunteers. This year, the ride starts at Moraine State Park near Portersville, Pa. on June 6 and will arrive in Greenville later that day. Riders will spend the night and leave for Ashtabula, Ohio on June 7.
"Thiel has gone the extra mile for us," Pfeiffer said. "We feel welcomed and wanted. We feel like we are building a relationship for the future.
"Bringing an event like this to Greenville…is great for the community, great for the county and great for the College," Urey said.
"During the academic year, the focus is on the obvious economic benefits generated by the College's students, employees and visitors, but an event like this is an important reminder of the year-round benefit the College brings to the community and region," Executive Director of Communications and Marketing Richard Orr said. "Thiel College is a resource the greater community can use for camps, conferences, meetings."
