About Nick Patrone
Dare to Ride the Rainbow of Life: You Will Come to Appreciate the Myriad of Its Colors.
I am an Italian American citizen with dual citizenship who retired from the full time practice of Medicine in 2014 ; I still work as a volunteer MD in a rural North Carolina clinic for the local indigent population and migrant farm workers. As a Rheumatologist, I take care of patients with autoimmune diseases and have worked with many MS patients over the past 40 years in conjunction with Neurologists. As an Internist, I help with the “walk in clinic” for general medical care.
In 2015 I rode the complete Northern Tier and in 2016 the complete Trans AM/ Western Tier with Bike the US for MS. I have been accepted to ride again this year on the Pacific Coast Ride followed by the Southern Tier.
I am proud to work with Bike the US for MS and find it to be one of the most patient oriented charities I have ever encountered.
With the help of family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors I need to raise $1.00 for every mile I will ride, a total of $1852 ( the Pacific Coast Segment). I hope that anyone who would like to help will still do so knowing that 75% of their donation goes to patient care in the form of $25,000 checks to MS centers across the US, projects at patient’s homes, and research to end this devastating disease. The remaining 25% covers administrative costs of the organization and a support team for the riders. Each donor should know that every rider is responsible for all of their own costs including transportation to Seattle, WA and then back from St Augustine's,Fla, the bike, food, camping equipment,etc.
If you would like to donate please consider doing so under the following guidelines; any amount is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for helping in this great cause.
I thank all donors in person, by phone, or by mail. This "Thank you" is for the anonymous donors who I do not know and to whom I wish I could give thanks in a more personal manner.
