Ready to start!
|Day 1, Rest Stop 2|
Jefferson Public Library
Caroline kept me updated on her progress as soon as she arrived to the grounds. "I arrived at Bike MS Rider Village about two hours ago and am getting my dorm room set for the weekend. My sister Maria is joining me this year and I couldn't be more excited! We're sharing a dorm room, which will bring us back to our childhood."
I was so glad that Caroline had her sister with her to help make Bike MS even more for a special weekend. I hope they had a fun time together and enjoyed sharing a dorm room.
|Day 1, Rest Stop 1 Mile 13|

Caroline was very excited to have a special group volunteering for Bike MS.
|Day 1, Rest Stop 7|
Burns Vista Ferry
Caroline & her students
"This year I brought six of my AVID (college readiness) students. They will be volunteering at one of the rest stops and I'm so excited they're here! It's great to see them in this fun outside-of-school environment." How wonderful that these students volunteered for such an event, and hopefully they will help raise MS awareness by telling their friends and family about their experience!
|First day done! 91 miles!|
Team Amulet's motto is "Never Stop... Never Quit..."® How appropriate for all of us with MS and all the riders! I am proud to say that Caroline raised over $800.00! And beyond amazing, Team Amulet raised $71,078.00! Seems like their motto is working! Together, across the country, we can end MS!
