This is a story of "another person" who wants to DO. To be heard. And to Make a Difference.
I, and others, should applaud her efforts. Clap-Clap
June 7,2010 WEST HARTFORD – The adventurous desire of one British woman found her saddled up on a motorcycle and heading down highways leading to scenic Connecticut back roads. Diane Freer, who now resides in West Hartford, is one of several women calling herself an Iron Maiden in a fight against multiple sclerosis. Feeding a growing interest in motorcycle riding, Freer surfed the Internet to learn more. In her search she stumbled across an article about the Iron Maidens, a group of women bikers who united their passion for riding with a passion to find a cure for MS. A few months later, while out to eat with a friend whose pastime included riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Freer shared with him her desire to take up riding. Sue Petruzzi was within earshot. As fate would have it, she was a member of the Iron Maidens fundraising team of which Freer had read about months earlier. Petruzzi chimed in and a new recruit was born. From this chance encounter a lasting friendship began.
