Andrew Klein, president of Assured Environments, will be joining Phil Cooper for three days of Cooper’s cross country bicycling tour to raise money for MS.

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Andrew Klein, president of Assured Environments and National Pest Management Association Bed Bug Division chairperson, will join the Phil Across America team for three days in Missouri to help raise awareness and funds for Multiple Sclerosis.

Phil Across America is an off-shoot of Bike the US for MS Team where Phil Cooper, president and CEO of Cooper Pest Solutions and BedBug Central, and the Bike the US for MS team will cycle 3,780 miles in 60 days through the United States to raise awareness and funds for Multiple Sclerosis.

Teaming up with the Phil Across America team was a natural fit for Klein. As an avid cyclist who rides between 200-250 miles per week, Klein was excited to embark on this new challenge and opportunity with his fellow pest management professional.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Phil Across America and the other Bike the US members in Missouri. I’m excited to participate in this unique opportunity that will ultimately help individuals affected by this Multiple Sclerosis,” said Klein. “For me, this ride is personal. I have a dear friend of mine who has been living with MS for years so I’m excited to do my part.”

Klein will ride part of the Missouri segment, arriving in Farmington, Missouri on Friday May 22nd and riding 240 miles over three days departing Monday May 25th.

Cooper is encouraging his colleagues in the pest management industry to support his journey by either donating or by participating in the ride itself.  Klein is taking advantage of “Just Bring Yourself” method which provides riders with all of the essentials to ride cross country including a bike, tent, air mattress, and food. Riders who participate in the “Just Bring Yourself” method only have to provide biking clothing and a helmet.

“I just want the industry to rally around this great cause. I am looking forward to having others in the industry to become part of the ride,” said Cooper.  “I’m excited Andrew [Klein] decided to team up with Phil Across America and ride part of this journey with me. The pest management industry is an amazing community and I am blessed to be a part of this close knit group.”
