7-year-old Farmington Hills girl organizes bike-a-thon to fight MS

For the first time this year, she’ll be riding without training wheels, says her mom, Tanya.

Amelia Nordhaus is an awesome young lady; she’s setting an example for adults. This is her third year of having a bike-a-thon and is a leading fundraiser for the National MS Society in Michigan.

Thank you, Amelia keep up the good work.

“When 6-year-old Amelia Nordhaus holds her second annual Bike-a-Thon for Multiple Sclerosis on Sunday, May 6, some participants will be pushed by an adult.

Some will be on tricycles. Some, like Amelia, will have training wheels on their bikes.

All will be doing their part to help find a cure for MS.

The event will be held at 4 p.m. at Kenbrook Elementary School, 32130 Bonnet Hill Road in Farmington Hills. It is geared to children age 9 and younger.

It was Amelia’s idea to organize the fundraiser last year to help her mom, Tanya,”


A very special thank you to Amelia Nordhaus, who at just six years old is showing many including adults how to help others.

Amelia’s Bike-A-Thon last year raised more than $1,600 for the National MS Society.
