About Frank Carpenter
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” ¯ Dalai Lama
Hi! My name is Frank. Before retiring I served in the United States Navy for 29 years and then worked on Navy ships as a contractor for 16 years.
I am extremely excited to be bicycling across America to raise money for MS. I know this will be a physically and mentally challenging adventure. Each mile cycled will help raise awareness about MS. Each service project completed will make a persons life easier. Hopefully the money my team raises will help find the cure for MS.
Our team will be biking from Bar Harbor ME to Seattle WA (4,295 miles) in 69 days. We will average 70 miles each day on the road. Along the way we will be raising awareness for MS and completing service projects for people with MS. Be sure to check out other pages on this site for information about where we go and what we do.
I have started a blog detailing my training and for each day of the trip. Please visit my blog at www.OneOldSeaDog.com
If you would like me to recognize someone with MS in my blog please contact me with their name and the day of the trip you would like the recognition.
I will be raising $1 for every mile I ride to reach my goal of $4,295. Any donation, large or small is truly appreciated. Thank you.
