Her mother, Tanya, has had MS since 10 years before Amelia was born. It's all Amelia has ever known. Amelia came up with the idea of doing a bike-a-thon with when she was just 5 after years of watching her mom, dad, and grandpa doing the Bike MS ride. She had three successful Amelia's Little Bike-a-Thon for MS rides before the pandemic hit. She had to pivot to a Zoom workout for two year, but she is back at promoting her bike-a-thon again this year.

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.
