2020 top fundraiser


is Amelia?


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.

A Big Thanks to Our 2019 Sponsors


The Big Smile Orthodontics

Raffle Bike Sponsor

Dr. Jane and her benevolent crew at The Big Smile Orthodontics in Livonia, Michigan read about Amelia's Little Bike-a-Thon for MS and offered a bike to raffle off at the event. What a GREAT surprise! Sure put a big smile on Amelia's face.


Jet's Pizza

Pizza Sponsor

Jet's Pizza at 12 Mile and Orchard Lake in Farmington Hills, Michigan stepped up in a big way by providing delicious pizza for all of the participants and their parents. Yum!

Amelia was very disappointed when she had to cancel her 4th annual Amelia's Little Bike-a-Thon for MS due to the pandemic of 2020. 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. On June 20, 2020 at 9am, kids will together via Zoom 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 June 30, 2020. A trophy will be given to the top fundraiser as of that date. A minimum of $25 per child must be raised. 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.
