About Melissa Rutkowski

Hi! My name is Melissa and I will be a part of the Southern Tier team for Bike the US for MS. I will be making the journey from New York, NY to San Diego, CA where my teammates and I will start our ride spanning across 8 states covering 3,070 miles ending in St. Augustine, FL.

 

Along our way, the Southern Tier team will be stopping in towns across the country to volunteer for MS patients. These projects include home accessibility projects, yard makeovers, cleaning, painting, and anything else that may help make the lives easier for those living with MS.

 

The money raised will support research and treatment organizations including the National MS Society NOW Campaign, the Multiple Sclerosis Center at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute in Seattle, Fairview MS Achievement Center, and the James Q. Miller MS Clinic of the University of Virginia's School of Medicine. To help ensure that the maximum amount of funds reach the research and treatment centers as well as are utilized for the home modification projects, the Southern Tier team will be camping in parks, churches, and similar locales as well as providing our own food.

I am extremely excited to be bicycling across America to raise money for MS. Although, this adventure will be physically and mentally challenging, the cause will make it all worthwhile. Thank you all so much for your support!
