Eric Bikes Cross-Country for Multiple Sclerosis
Organized by: Eric Eldred
Bike the US for MS is an organization that raises money for multiple sclerosis research and treatment through cross-country cycling trips. I will be riding with the 2017 Northern Tier team, departing from Bay Harbor, Maine, and arriving in Seattle, Washington over two months later, completing service projects and meeting with patients along the way. MS is a disease that can be disabling, and effects more than 400,000 Americans. While I do not have any personal connections to MS, I will be riding for those who cannot and would love to raise as much money as possible to help those affected. No less than half of the funds raised will go directly to MS patients. This money funds research and treatment, provides direct financial assistance, and helps public outreach and volunteering. The other half will cover personal expenses that make the trip possible, including the support vehicle, some overnight accommodations, and transportation to Maine and from Washington. Personal expenses will be kept to an absolute minimum, and once they are covered by 50% of the funds every additional dollar will go to this fantastic cause. Any and all donations will be very much appreciated! Please help me ride for those who cannot, and raise as much as possible to help those affected by MS.
