Hey everyone, my name is Alex Pearlman, and I'm a senior at Southern Illinois University. The past two years, I have been a part of a ride with Bike the US for MS and couldn't think of a better way to spend a summer. There are many aspects of the experience that I love, such as: The simple lifestyle of being on the road, camping out in cool places, exploring new terrain every day from your bike saddle, meeting awesome people, making someone's day just by stopping by to do a little yard work, and at the end, seeing the big payoff of the hard work fundraising and on the road when the organization presents that huge check to the James Q. Miller MS Clinic. Etc. Etc.
I would encourage anyone who can get involved to do just that. Donate, spread the word to others who may be interested, or even better, join us for the ride! This is a trip and an experience I would highly recommend to anyone.
It's about more than just raising the money that we donate towards MS research. It's incredibly gratifying to see the smiles on the faces of the people you meet who are struggling with the disease. I can't wait to ride the miles for this important cause and have a great time doing it again!
