About Edward Osuna

What a great opportunity to be part of a charity event where I can accomplish my goals.

First, I can accomplish a ride across America which I have wanted to do for some time now.  Early last year, I started planning for a 45 day trek across America with a cycling tour group that was going to be very expensive.  However, after a friend of mine (Dr. John Evans) mentioned “riding for a cause”, I did my research and found this fund raising event which was a “no brainer”.  Now I can achieve a second goal of raising funds for a charity that supports research for Multiple Sclerosis. 

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. This cycling event was organized to raise awareness for MS research & to volunteer for patients. During the trek, our cycling group will stop in towns across the country to volunteer for MS patients. These projects include yard makeovers, cleaning, painting, or anything else that may be difficult for people living with MS.  

I could not ask for better timing for this event since I just announced my retirement to my family on Christmas day.  I will retire on May 30th after 42 years of federal government service.  I will depart that same day for Virginia where I will start my 61 day trek across America on June 1st and finish in San Francisco on August 1st.  During this trek I will celebrate my 64th birthday on June 16th.  

My motivation and inspiration for doing challenging events, such as this ride, comes from my family.  Both of my kids work in health related disciplines; my son is a successful Personal Trainer and my daughter is an Immunology Scientist.  My wife is also a health nut and tells me I can do anything.

I am truly looking forward to the challenging 3800 mile ride with this group of inspiring young cyclists as well as helping those in need along the way.  My fundraising goal is $3800:

     ·    100 people donating 1 cent per mile ($38) will raise $3800

     ·    50 people donationing 2 cents per mile ($76) will raise $3800

If you are able to support me in reaching this goal you can make your tax deductible donations using one of the following methods:

 1.    Write a check payable to Bike the US for MS and put my name (Edward Osuna) in the check memo line.  Mail the check to the address below.  Once the check is received by the organization, they will post the donation to this website.
