About Katie MacDonald

Hi everyone!

First of all, let me say how excited I am to be a part of the Northern Tier team for Bike the US for MS. This summer, my teammates and I will be riding from Bar Harbor, Maine to Seattle, Washington in order to raise money and awareness for MS. I am looking forward to an amazing summer, full of biking, seeing the country, and meeting new people.

A little bit about me: I'm 22 years old, and grew up just north of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Just in case you are wondering after reading that last sentence, yes, I do love maple syrup, and yes, I do say "eh?" from time to time. Last May, I graduated from Dalhousie University with a degree in computer science. This year, I am at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, working towards a Master's degree in the Technology, Innovation, and Education program.

I really started getting into cycling two summers ago, and just started competing in cyclocross races this September. My favourite part about biking is being able to see new places. Every time I go out on my bike, I try to take a new road, or go somewhere I have never been before. To me, biking across the country would be the epitome of this - being somewhere new every single day.

As much fun as it will be to bike from coast to coast, there is more to the ride than that. Through this ride, my teammates and I will be raising as much money as we can to combat multiple sclerosis - a devastating disease that affects over 2.5 million people worldwide. 

My goal is to raise $1 per mile, for a grand total of $4,295, and I would appreciate any help I can get to achieve this goal. 

You can donate on this page, using the donation box to the right of my photo, or you can send a cheque payable to "Bike the US for MS" with "Katie MacDonald" in the memo line to the following address:
