About Matt Krajewski
Biking across the US has long been a dream of mine. Recently an opportunity presented itself to allow me to take on this grand challenge. I knew I wanted to support a cause while riding. Aimlessly wandering the internet searching for a charity to support, I stumbled upon Bike the US for MS. Upon researching the charity, I immediately became absorbed in it due to the fact that I have a relative who has battled MS for many years.
Beginning in late April, I will be riding 3785 miles from Yorktown, VA to San Francisco, CA on the TransAmerica Trail. I won’t be able to complete this ride alone, and I would be honored if you would help me. I have set a modest fundraising goal of $1 per mile and would love if we could blow that goal out of the water! No pledge is too small! I invite you to be a part of my goal. Your donations will go to support research and treatment at the James Q. Miller MS Clinic in Charlottesville, VA, the Swedish MS Center in Seattle, WA, and the Fairview MS Center in St. Paul, MN as well as fund service projects to enhance the lives of those living with MS through home modifications and essential medical equipment.
I am riding self-contained to raise as much money for MS as possible. Every dollar you donate will go directly to MS and not one penny will go to fund the tour. Every donation is tax deductible and will help to fight MS. You can donate right here on this site, or mail donations to:
Bike the US for MS
PO Box 10001
Blacksburg, VA 24062
Write checks out to “Bike the US for MS” and put “Matt Krajewski” in the memo line. Once the letter is received by the organization, they will post the donation to this website.
Tax Deduction Information: Bike the US for MS Inc is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization with tax ID #27-2192426
Thank you so much for your support! See you at the finish line!
UPDATED FUNDRAISING GOAL - $10,000
I've thought a lot about setting a new fundraising goal since we reached the original goal over two weeks ago. After meeting and spending time with people who are personally fighting the disease, I've seen that it can steal their mobility, independence, and aspirations. At the same time I have seen the kindness and optimism that the same people continue to fill their lives with. That optimism has inspired me to set our new goal at $10,000. I know that it is a BIG goal, but MS is a BIG problem that we know so little about. To make any headway against this disease goals need to be set high. There is no known cure and we know even less about what causes the disease.
I want to extend a special thank you to everyone who has donated already and who helped us reach the original goal, because without you this new goal could never be a reality.
