VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT: TERRY FRESCONI Volunteers like Terry Fresconi make Bike MS: Bike to the Bay possible. Terry got involved with the MS Society shortly after her diagnosis in 2001. She and her family sponsor the Plantations Margaritaville Rest Stop. They decorate the rest stop with tropical pictures and dress in Hawaiian like attire. Each rider that comes through is given a lei and offered food, drinks, and whole lot of gratitude. “It’s all about making the experience for every rider that comes in just so prolific,” says Terry, “that they feel good about what they’ve done riding all day long.” Terry says she is constantly inspired by everyone who volunteers. For her and her family, it’s the event of the year. “When we see the riders coming, the whole rest stop starts screaming and yelling and clapping,” says Terry. “For one rider or twenty, it doesn’t matter – you get noise from us and a lot of it.”
