What do you wear for a 150-mile bike ride? If you're Melissa Friedman, false eyelashes, a bright red wig in braids, striped stockings and a frilly petticoat. Dressed as her alter ego, Tag-along the clown, Friedman was preparing Saturday morning to set out from Huntington State Beach with more than 2,000 other cyclists on a two-day ride down Coast Highway to San Diego. Held by local chapters of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the event is expected to raise about $2 million to fight multiple sclerosis.

Ryan Carter Margo Gabor has a very important bag, full of folded pieces of paper. Some pieces are Post-it notes, others are scraps of receipts. A few are chunks of cardboard. All are significant to Gabor. Written on them are prayers and notes, and some wishes. Many are from people she stopped on the street as part of what has become a determined life mission. On May 24, Gabor will leave her Glendale home for Israel with the bags of notes, 55,000 flying miles gained over a life of traveling and little money.

After she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis five years ago, Glendale resident Margo Gabor felt she needed to help the underprivileged and terminally ill through charity. "There is something inside of me that gives me the power and fortitude," the 52-year-old said. "I knew my purpose." Gabor decided to do her charity work by asking local supermarkets to help. She bought bags of potatoes and other vegetables at a discounted price from Jon's Market in Glendale and donated them to the missions on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles.

Despite personal struggles in her life, Glendale resident Judith Ritchie hasn't let any challenge stop her from educating and giving back to a community she has called home since she was 4 months old. In 1992, Ritchie lost her then-11-year-old son, Alan, to AIDS. Alan had contracted the disease through a blood transfusion when he was 2 days old, and he was diagnosed with HIV in 1988. Although she lost her son at a young age, Ritchie used her own personal tragedy as inspiration to educate others about a disease that so many Glendale parents knew little about.
