Dozens of cyclists from around the country stopped in Charlottesville Monday to drop off a very big check.
The group, called Bike the US for MS, raised $50,000 for the University of Virginia's multiple sclerosis clinic. Cyclist Laura Olexa from Cincinnati personally raised $6,000 for the cause.
"A couple of my good friends, including my neighbor's sister, have MS. I've always wanted to bike across the country and I thought what better way to do it than ride 3,785 miles and raise money for MS research.
The cyclists started the journey this past weekend in Yorktown, Virginia. They'll wrap up the trek nearly 4,000 miles later in San Francisco later this summer.
