About Mike Tipton

Participating in a multi week bicycle tour has been on my bucket list for a number of years.  Little did I know that I could achieve this dream and also raise funds for MS research and treatment.  My sister lost a hard fought battle with MS on Christmas Eve 2015, a day after her 57th birthday.  She lived with MS for nearly twenty years.  She had a positive attitude and a smile that was contagious.  MS not only affects the individual, but it alters the lifestyles of the spouse, children, and other family members.

The more I learned about “Bike the US for MS,” the more I realized I needed to get involved.  Therefore, I am embarking on this new adventure to ride the Pacific Coast route.  I am anxious to meet the other members of the team and begin the 1852 mile journey from Seattle to San Diego.  The Bike the US for MS staff is making arrangements for our team to do service projects to assist MS patients along the route.  These projects are to include tasks such as routine home maintenance.   

The mission of Bike the US for MS is to address the challenges of those affected by multiple sclerosis and support research to end MS.  They do this by funding research and treatment centers focused on MS patients.  They also provide financial assistance to individuals whose lives are changed by MS.  Please help support my fundraising efforts by donating to Bike the US for MS.
