About Rachel Vander Lee

Hi everyone!

My name is Rachel Vander Lee and I am thrilled to be joining the TransAm team! Last year, I virtually followed my baby brother Eric online as he cycled across the country with the Northern Tier. His experience was so incredibly inspiring that I made it my mission to complete a cross country trip with Bike the US for MS. This year, the two of us will be biking together from Yorktown, VA to San Fransisco, CA, as part of the TransAm team!

I am 24, currently in my first year of Occupational Therapy school, and working at an incredible hospital for kids with disabilities.

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system. Symptoms are often unpredictable and disabling. Unfortunately, little is known about the cause of this devastating disease and there is no known cure. However, recent research has been instrumental in developing the therapies that are currently used to treat MS.

As part of this team, I have pledged to donate $1 for every mile I ride (3,785 total!) to Multiple Sclerosis research and to support those living with MS, We also will ride to raise awareness and will be doing several service projects along the way.

Please visit http://www.nationalmssociety.org/What-is-MS to learn a little more about MS.

If you are able, please consider helping me reach my donation goal!
