SHELTON, Conn. -- While the cures may still be out of reach, a Shelton biking group travels miles to raise money to research cancer, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and heart disease, according to the Shelton Herald.

Cycle for Cures, also known as C4C, boasts 30 members, ages 14 to 70, with each cyclist having had one of the diseases, said the Shelton Herald.

The charity fundraising team supports causes that are close to the hearts of their families and friends, according to the C4C website.

Six members of the family of a father and son team, Ed and Jordan Barros, were lost to cancer, reported the Shelton Herald.

Other cyclists in the group have had or survived cancer while still taking part in rides that range from 25 to 100 miles, said the Shelton Herald.
