STURGEON BAY, WISCONSIN (Door County Advocate) - When Louise Tassoul of Duvall moved to Little Sturgeon and married August Bosman in 1891, she couldn't have imagined that six of her descendants would one day participate with 10 other Door County Snowmobilers to raise thousands of dollars in the fight against multiple sclerosis.

The Door County group participating in the 2012 MS Snow Tour, based at the Indian Springs Lodge in Carter, raised $40,398.61 and is now within $31,352 of its long-term goal to raise $1 million.

Participants included Bob Schmidt, Tassoul's grandson; great-grandson Jim Krueger, great-great-grandsons Connor Wilz and Nick Clermont, and great-grandsons "in-law" Donn Clermont and John Wilz.

Others who made this year's trip from Door County were Paul Stoltman, Sue Krueger, Bob and Jean Sperber, John and Mary Jeanne Kacmarynski, Justine Krause, Rob Bochek, Eli Bochek and Keith Magle.

They joined 116 other snowmobilers from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin for the four-day event Jan. 27-30. All funds raised benefit the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The 29th annual Snow Tour raised more than $260,000, bringing the total over the years to more than $6 million.

The 2013 ride is scheduled to begin Jan. 23. Weather permitting, the group will leave Sturgeon Bay, cross Green Bay, and return six days later on Jan. 29. To join or for more information, call Bob Schmidt at (920) 256-3035.

For more information about the MS Society, visit www.wisms.org or call (800) 242-3358.
