Ed Chasteen's ride to support MS (10,000 miles in 2003; he reported on his efforts regularly in Sun-News of the Northland) made the Sun-News list of the top 10 news stories of the northland for 2003:
Dr. Ed Chasteen, a retired William Jewell College professor, announced in February that he would ride his bicycle 10,000 miles to aid the Multiple Sclerosis Society and HateBusters, a group that combats racial and religious bigotry.
