S

ix years ago, Paul Fried of
Farmington Hills discov-
ered Get Your Guts In Gear
(GYGIG), which hosts long-distance
cycling events around the country
each year. The White Plains, N.Y.-
based organization strives to empower
people with Crohn's disease, ulcerative
colitis and related conditions to com-
plete a physically demanding, multiday
bicycle ride while raising money for
inflammatory bowel disease charities.
After finishing a 216-mile ride
in Seattle in 2007, Fried, a certified
public accountant, found cycling to
be a passion. Medical complications
relating to Crohn's prevented him from
competing in another GYGIG long-
distance ride the next year. That was

his catalyst for starting a local cycling
event to benefit the Crohn's & Colitis
Foundation of America (CCFA).
The fifth annual Paul Fried Charity
Ride to Support the CCFA, held Aug.
4 on a rolling, wooded 25-mile course
at Kensington Metropark near Milford,
raised at least $11,000; 81 cyclists,
walkers and volunteers participated.
Fried wants to generate at least
$100,000 in total accumulated dona-
tions for the CCFA. His event so far
has brought in nearly $60,000.
"As important as the financial goal is
to me," he said, "it is equally important
to be able to empower local individu-
als suffering with Crohn's or colitis to
challenge themselves by completing a
25-mile bike ride and experience, even
to a smaller degree, the same sense of
accomplishment I felt after completing
my first long-distance event." E
