When I was just two weeks old, my parents took me to my first Bike MS event. Between going to the event each summer and loving it and watching my mom struggle with MS my whole life, I got the fundraising bug at an early age. At the age of 5, I sat down next to my mom and said, "I want to have my own bike ride with my friends."
My mom said, "Okay, but you have to do a lot of the work." That day, I started working on Amelia's Little Bike-a-Thon for MS. For three years, I hosted the bike-a-thon for kids along with Amelia's Little Lemonade Stand for MS and raised thousands of dollars doing so. Last year, the pandemic hit, and I had to come up with a new idea. Amelia's Little Workout for MS was born. To stay safe, we will be doing the workout once more - this year on Saturday, June 19th at 9am EST. If you'd like your child to participate or you know of children who would like this, please go to www.littlebikeathon.com. It's a great way to get kids to think philanthropically.
I’ve set an ambitious goal because I know that with support from people like you I can get there.
MS is a devastating, unpredictable disease. But money raised through Bike MS fuels cutting-edge MS research and critical services to ensure people affected by MS have the resources they need to live their best lives.
