About Lauren Boling

Hello!

I am so excited that you have arrived at my profile page!

I am currently a senior studying Urban and Environmental Planning at a little university known as Virginia Tech!! WOO HOO GOOOOO Hokies!!! 

I am passionate about community activism, and after I graduate this Spring, I plan to finish my Non-profit and NGO Management Master's Certificate while on the ride. Once I have completed the ride, I will further my education in Urban Affairs and Planning with a concentration in Community Development. With that focus, I decided to once again spend my summer with this amazing organization.

The summer of 2012, I was the Northern Tier intern, and I gained so much knowledge about bikes and touring, as well as met amazing people who are conquering MS. This year, I plan to extend my knowledge of this disease and interact with the people who are battling against it. At the same time, I will have the opportunity to be on my bicycle every single day peddling and working with my teammates to further spread awareness.

Cycling could be considered a medication. It truly is amazing, and that is one of many reasons I am so excited to bike from my home state of Virginia to California.

Though many people ride a bike as a form of escape, I ride with thought and purpose. I ride to raise awareness and support for MS.

As our 35th president JFK once said, "Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride."

I hope you will support my team and me as we embark on this astonishing bike ride!
