children's fundraisers to help end multiple sclerosis
farmington hills, michigan
Amelia was very disappointed in 2020 when she had to cancel her 4th annual Amelia's Little Bike-a-Thon for MS due to the pandemic. Still having the mission to help create a world free of MS, she came up with a marvelous alternative - an alternative kids all over the globe can join in on - Amelia's Little Workout for MS. In 2020, in large part to Amelia's Little Workout for MS, she raised nearly $3,750 and was the 6th highest fundraiser for Bike MS in mid-Michigan. Because it's still not safe to gather in large groups, she will once again host Amelia's Little Workout for MS. On Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 9am, kids will get together via Zoom to do two 15 minute exercise circuits for a total of a 30 minute workout. Think jumping jacks, jogging in place, sit-ups, and more - routine will be posted here so that children can practice ahead of time if they so desire. Participants will get donations in support of their feat. All donations are due to Amelia by July 10, 2021. A trophy will be given to the top fundraiser as of that date.
This event helps the National Multiple Sclerosis Society with their mission to stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost, and end MS forever. 100% of funds raised go directly to the National MS Society.

2020 top fundraiser
At the age of 5, Amelia Nordhaus sat down next to her mother and said, "I want to do my own Bike MS with my friends and people my age." And Amelia's Little Bike-a-Thon for MS was born.
Why her interest in raising funds for multiple sclerosis? Well, her mom was diagnosed with MS in early 2001. She sees the effects that MS has on her mother on a daily basis. Therefore, she takes her fundraising very seriously.
