Not many people can say they've biked across the country, but a group of 25-cyclists is attempting to do just that! Inspired by his mom, Donald Fraser has put together a band of bikers, "Bike The US for MS." This group of 25-cyclists is out to raise money and awareness in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.
Bringing their cause to 62-cities nationwide, the clan passed through Pueblo last night and left this morning. "This is the biggest city on our route," said Fraser. "We are excited to be here. We come here every year."
This year, the cyclists began their trip on June 1st in Virginia, and are hoping to reach their destination, San Francisco, on August 1st.
"Over two-thousand-miles.. heat, cold, wind, dogs, trucks, these guys have faced it all but they're still going, and they're not going to stop until they reach San Francisco, " said Donald Fraser
The crew bikes an average of 75-miles each day and have raised more than $90,000 so far. All the money will be used to help the 400,000 Americans currently facing MS.
The bikers left Pueblo today, but you can follow their trip on their website.
