About Ken Ball

Hi,

I'm Ken. I am currently living in Cleveland, OH with my amazing wife Kathy of 25 years, coming up on June 2nd, and our two boys Dan and Evan.  I'm very excited about cycling this year with Bike The US For MS.  I have been cycling for about 7 years.  I have been cycling in the Pan Ohio Hope Ride for the American Cancer Society the past 5 years.

I first came to know the Bike The US team two years ago when they were passing through Cleveland. We had the honor of feeding them meals from our restaurant while they were in town.  It was in talking with the cyclists and Cassie that I became intrigued with riding with them at some point.  

I'll be joining the team in Newcomb, NY and cycling back to Cleveland.  Upstate NY is where I grew up and we will be cycling through and near some of my old stomping grounds along the way. Which is the reasoning behind selecting that segment.  Turning 50 this year also created a little extra motivation.

I'm looking forward to meeting the team and and taking advantage of all the unplanned opportunities that come along away.

I feel blessed beyond words to be able to have the freedom and ability to give of my time, talents and treasures to help a great cause especially when I know I'm not getting anything back. Below is one of my favorite quotes from my mentor, boss and business partner for the past 18 years.  

“Nearly every moment of every day we have the opportunity to give something to someone else – our time, our love, our resources. I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return.” - S. Truett Cathy/Founder Chick-fil-A Inc.
