2023 Atlantic Coast

Support Me

Friends and Family,

On April 10th, I'm boarding a plane for the East Coast to participate in an epic fundraising event, and I need your support! I will be cycling 49 days to cover the entire 2992 miles of the Atlantic Coast, from Key West to Canada, and raise funds for a non profit called Bike the US for MS (Multiple Sclerosis). This ride is very personal to me, as my Aunt Betty, a vibrant, beautiful woman, died of MS a few years ago after years of slow, painful and debilitating deterioration. I am dedicating my ride to her.

 For 2210 miles of the ride, I'll be cycling with a group of cyclists who are also raising funds for MS, and our group will take 4 days off our bikes to perform service for MS patients like my Aunt. I personally plan to raise $5000, but our group hopes to raise a minimum of $150,000 to fund home modification projects and to support research and treatment of MS at clinics and medical centers across the US.If you are able, I'm hoping you will pitch in to help me achieve my $5000 goal. 

Here are the two ways to make a tax deductible donation:

  1. To use your credit card, click the orange "Support Me" button on this page.        
  2. Write a check payable to “Bike the US for MS,” with my name in the "memo" line of the check.  If you live nearby, you can hand me the check.  Otherwise, mail it to:

          Bike the US for MS

          P.O. Box 10001

          Blacksburg, VA 24062  

Thanks in advance for your support!.....Eileen
