Their goals were lofty: raise money for charity and raise their own level of fitness.

Toward those ends, several officers with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office recently cycled from Miami to Key Largo to raise money for multiple sclerosis.

"With the economy not doing well, the charities are all hurting," says deputy Richard Jackson. "We feel it's important to support them and at the same time get some good exercise."

The officers who took part in the National MS Society's MS 150 Bike Tour are members of the PBSO Cycling Club, which rides in West Palm Beach's Okeeheelee P ark, or, for more experienced cyclists, all around Palm Beach County.
