On March 22nd, 2010 Ashley Schneider began her 3,288-mile journey across America, on foot, from San Francisco to New York.

Ashley ran nearly a marathon a day, six days a week for six months, to fundraise for Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.

With only a motor home and one crew member to aid her, Ashley was able to complete her run on September 28th, 2010. She ran the final steps of her cross country run in New York, surrounded by supporters, family, and friends.

Ashley became the 16th female to ever run across America. During these six months she ran through 11 pairs of shoes, burned over 270,000 calories, and sustained an injury total of only two blisters.

Along the way she rallied thousands of supporters helping her to raise awareness and money for her personal cause.
Ashley decided to turn her experience into an annual relay event, the MS Run the US, America’s first and only 3,100-mile relay run. Every year starting in mid-April we run from Santa Monica to New York.

In 2017 her mother Jill died due to complications of the disease.
Jill’s positive attitude and contagious spirit for life have inspired the hundreds of others to create positive change.
