About Carissa & Katie

About Katie: 

This past summer I rode with the Northern Tier team, and it was hands down the best experience of my life. I saw some amazing places, met some amazing people, and also got to see, first-hand, how big of an impact Bike the US for MS makes.

This year I will be riding self-contained from San Francisco to San Diego over spring break with my friend Carissa. Doing a ride self-contained means no support van, no organized rest stops, and no route leaders (aka the incredible people who make everything go smoothly on a supported trip). Carissa and I will be doing all of the planning ourselves, and carrying all of our camping gear on our bikes. Though this makes the trip slightly more challenging for us, it means that even more of the money we raise can go directly to ending MS.

About Carissa: 

Hi!

Two years ago I rode a bike across the USA with the 4KforCancer and realized the unique impact cyclists get to have on communities. We reach so many people, often unexpectedly, and get to continue spreading awareness after the trip through pictures, stories and repin' the gear. After meeting a Bike the US for MS alumni at the school I work, we teamed up to plan our next fundraiser and decided a self supported ride with Bike the US for MS would be a perfect fit. 

One of my friends has MS. Meeting her, I would have never guessed the battle she endured to get to the place she is in life. Her vitality for life and for making the most of every second she feels healthy is truly inspiring. I hope through this trip I am able to make at least one person's life even a little easier and at the same time gain some knowlege along the way.
