About Jonathan Kim
I'm Jon Kim. I'm 20 years old, and I am an undergrad junior at Cornell University majoring in Human Biology. I was born and raised in Southern California in a small town called Cypress. I have 4 awesome siblings: 3 older sisters and an older brother. While we were never the richest or the luckiest family, we were blessed with loving parents and a happy home.
We are all on the East Coast now; all of the older siblings are working and doing adult things, while I'm still a student in college. This summer, I wanted to do something nuts, something that would make people say "You're doing what???". But I wanted it to be meaningful, too! That's why I signed up with Bike the US for MS.
What we'll be trying to accomplish is a cross country biking tour, from East to West coast. A team of about 30 people and myself will bike from Yorktown, VA to San Francisco, CA! No planes, no cars, no trains--100% bicycle transport. We will travel 3785 miles in 62 days, starting on June 1st. By the time we touch the Pacific Ocean, we will have traveled through 9 states. That's a lot of mileage, but it is for a worthy cause! We embark on this trip to help fight against multiple sclerosis, an immune-mediated disease of the central nervous system that can cause vision loss, inability to walk, and depression. As we travel, we will make stops throughout various communities to volunteer and help those with MS!
In order to complete this journey, I need your help to raise 1 dollar per mile, or $3785 dollars! Ideally, if 100 people each pledged 1 cent per mile, we could easily accomplish this goal. The money raised will help fund medical research for MS and will be donated to MS Society NOW, Swedish Neuroscience Institute, and other organizations that will help patients afflicted with MS.
Donate however much you want! Any kind of support is appreciated, including prayers or words of encouragement :) Thanks for all your help, and you can follow me on my journey on Facebook (link at top), or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
