About Kevin King
Hi! My name is Kevin King and I'm an architect, engineer, and planner who works with Colleges and Universities to envision their future. I bike commute year round to my office in downtown Baltimore, Maryland and am a board member of Bike Maryland.
I had a client with MS and got to see first hand how the disease can slowly take away ones ability to control their bodies. His mind was sharp as ever and most importantly he maintained a brilliant sense of humor and irony. He was a real inspiration who lived life to the fullest despite the issues resulting from MS. For me, this ride across the country is in his honor.
MS is a disease that affects 2.3 million people worldwide. It causes the body's immune system to attack Myelin which insulates nerve cells. It's similar to stripping the coating off electrical wiring causing unpredictable neurological problems.
The money we raise will not only further research but will be used to assist those with the disease. During our ride we will complete several service projects for families affected by the disease.
I've set a modest goal of raising $1.50 per mile. Help me exceed this goal and support this important cause. Any financial assistance you can give me will be greatly appreciated and put to good use.
