2012 MS Bike Tour Featured Rider

Amanda-Smith-MS-Bike-RiderAs Team UPHS/PENN has completed another year riding and raising donations for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, we would like to especially recognize one dedicated team member who travelled a great distance to participate and support our team - Amanda Smith - the 2012 Team UPHS/PENN MS Bike Tour Featured Rider. 

Amanda, the daughter of Gene Smith, PAH Cytology supervisor, is a freshman majoring in elementary education at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Amanda left school and flew into Philadelphia the Friday before the ride, completed the City to Shore bike tour and flew back to Florida from the Atlantic City airport the very next day. Amanda has been participating in the MS City to Shore Bike Tour since she was 15 years old and is a shining example of our dedicated staff, family and friends. 

Great job and thank you Amanda!
