    Thumbs up Ride Across America - Phil of The Amazing Race

    Hi folks,
    Just heard about this one- seems like a pretty cool opportunity, raising awareness for MS.
    Phil is riding to raise awareness and funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The ride also coincides with the launch of NOW One Square Meal into GNC stores across America. "I fly over 400,000 miles a year and I figured it was time to stretch my legs. I love to ride so I thought I'd see what this great country looks like up close instead of taking a bird's eye view at 30,000 feet," said Keoghan. "In this economic climate, bike riding makes a lot of sense -
    it's good for your waistline and easy on your wallet."
    Phil will be cycling over 3500 miles on his ride from coast to coast, averaging 100 miles a day and spending about six hours a day in the saddle. Is he crazy?...quite possibly. Will it hurt?...heck yeah. Have a good look around this site, then go to the "Riding for a Great Cause" section and click through to the donate page... Phil ain't doing this for fun you know, let's make it worth his while! You can ride with Phil by signing up here.
    Unfortunately I won't be able to meet up with his crew, but hopefully some of you can!!

    Thats just Awesome! I love seeing a guy who is well off financially and could easily just mail in a big check, instead get on his bike and ride across the country using his fame to promote the cause. I always thought he seemed like a pretty genuinely good guy, but now I don't have to guess anymore.

    I agree. I think its a great way to support the cause. I really, really, REALLY wish I could go. Its one of my dreams to be on the Amazing Race. Obviously, by meeting Phil, I'd be one step closer.

    Nice post, thanks for sharing that. I sent a link to this thread, and to the MS page, to a friend who would be interested.
