Phil Cooper, CEO of Cooper Pest Solutions and BedBug Central is biking across the US on behalf of Multiple Sclerosis, June 1 to August 1, 2012.

Phil’s mission to raise money to help find a cure for MS began nearly 28 years ago. In May of 1984, as a George Washington University senior, he had hoped to bike across the country in celebration of his graduation. It was an idea of grandeur but due to a variety of factors his dream was put on hold.  Since then, Phil made it his personal goal to bike across the US on his 50th birthday.

Phil saw the fulfillment of his dream as an opportunity to better the world and made a difference in the lives of many.  Since 1984, Phil has ridden thousands of charitable miles raising over $250,000 and creating awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.  He, along with his family, friends and the Cooper Pest Solutions; team, have been tirelessly involved in the MS1550 City to Shore ride each year in New Jersey.  But, with the approach of his 50th birthday (July 11, 20102), Phil is set to put his involvement, passion and 28 year-old dream to the test.

Clark Pest Control, a Team Cooper sponsor, was there at the tire dipping ceremony (dipped their tires into the Pacific Ocean) with Phil at the BBQ at Crissy Field in San Francisco.
