COCONUT GROVE (CBSMiami) – Could you bike 1,000 miles in 50 states in 50 weeks? A group of wheelchair cyclists aims to accomplish it for a good cause.

The disabled cyclists, who are coming to Miami for this weekend’s ING marathon, will raise money for the Christopher Reeves Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people with spinal cord-related disabilities.

In each of the 50 states they visit, the wheelchair cyclists go to a rehab facility. In Miami, the cyclists will visit Miami Physical Therapy Associates. Their goal is to recruit other athletes, promote their cause and raise money for spinal-cord research.

For more information on this event, call Miami Physical Therapy Associates at (305) 444-0074 or visit
