About Kaylee Schwitzer

Hi there! Thanks for checking out my page. 

About the ride: 

This summer, I will be taking two months to bike across the country to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. MS affects every patient differently but the scariest part is that it can be very difficult to diagnose and nearly impossible to treat. Nearly 2 million people suffer from MS worldwide, and yet very little is known about the disease. 
 
As someone who constantly needs to be on the move, I have a tremendous amount of empathy for those suffering from a disease that takes away the freedom of mobility. Help me raise money to increase support for MS patients and increase the quality of life of millions of people around the world. Ninety cents out of every dollar raised will go directly to MS research, treatment, direct financial assistance and raising awareness for the disease. The rest will support the service projects that we will conduct throughout the ride.
 
Where there is unity and collaboration, great things can be achieved. I will be riding with approximately 25 other riders. The ride is going to be a fully supported ride. This means that there will be a big truck that follows us with all of our stuff (we don't have to lug it around on our bikes - complete game changer!). Once a week, we will take a day off riding to complete a community service project and help people who are currently living with MS.
 

We leave May 28th from Bar Harbor, Maine and arrive in Seattle, Washington on August 4th. We ride anywhere between 60-100 miles a day (depending on where we are and how many mountains there are).
