What We Do
Raise funds for MS research and treatment through cross country cycling trips. Our goal is to combine an important cause with an incredible experience. In addition to funding research, cyclists volunteer for MS patients as they pass through communities. A portion of the funds are used to fund projects like accessible ramps and bathrooms.
Our Mission
To address the challenges of those affected by multiple sclerosis and fund research to end MS.
Our Values
Our top three priorities are to be safe, have fun, and make a positive impact in the lives of everyone living with multiple sclerosis.

Her college roommate had been diagnosed and biking across the country to fight MS seemed like the perfect way to spend the summer. She has a Masters Degree in Public Administration from the University of Montana and has played a critical role in growth of the organization.
