About Leland Quinter

Please help me in the fight to raise awareness for MS by raising $3,800.  All proceeds go to the James Q Miller MS Clinic in Charlottesville, VA and help fund research and treatment for MS patients. (tax deductible ID #27-2192426)

My name is Leland, or Lee, and I'm currently at the University of Pittsburgh majoring in civil engineering with a concentration in water resources.  I grew up in Reading, PA and have always had a desire to get out and see as much of the world as possible so I started by venturing to the other side of the state for college.  From there I made some of the best friends I could have asked for and I've had more opportunities to do cool stuff than I can even keep up with.  I’ve spent that past few summers traveling anywhere I possibly can and I will say, it’s been rewarding. 

As a life-long enthusiast for sports, personal fitness, and basically being a kid I started cycling two years ago in an effort to reduce the impact running was having on my legs and I’ve loved it ever since.  I became familiar with MS through friends in high school whose families had been affected but never really knew much about it.  It wasn’t until after being introduced to this ride I decided to do some research and realized what kind of impact MS has on the lives of those in contact with it. 

The way I see it we all have our troubles and there are many out there affected by disease, whether it be directly or indirectly.  At this point in my life I’m healthy, adventurous, and I have all the tools necessary to fight for those who have already experienced the misfortune diseases like MS bring to family and friends alike.  So it would be my pleasure to take an opportunity like this to do what I love, and do it to help the 400,00 Americans in need.  Otherwise I’d be spending my summer groveling for money to pay off my school loans that I won’t put more than a dent in right now anyway and I’m going to be making plenty of money after I have a degree so giving two months won’t seem like much in the grand scheme of things.  I might never have this much time or energy to fight for MS again.  The time is now.  And besides, life is about the journey.  :)
