"The Ride" raised $500k for National MS Society

I want share this info....I did not know much about this endeavor!  It is encouraging to me.

In March of 2009, Phil left Los Angeles on his bike for a 40-day ride across America that covered over 3,500 miles. Joining Phil for this grueling journey were his cycling wingman, best friend, a former California Highway Patrol Officer and his father. Together they faced everything from sand storms and freezing temperatures to illness and injury. In just 40 days he raised $500,000 and unprecedented exposure for the National MS Society.
