| July 9, 2012

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. – Guest riders Jim Fredericks and Andrew Architect of the National Pest Management Association will join up with the Phil Across America team on July 14 and 15, days before Academy 2012 in Tucson, Ariz. from July 19-21. 

Fredericks, director of technical service for NPMA, will ride for a number of close friends who have been touched by multiple sclerosis.
 
“When I realized that Phil and the Bike the U.S. for MS team would be riding through Utah on the weekend before the NPMA Academy, I decided to meet up with the team and show my support.” Fredericks said. “It’s a monumental journey for a great cause, and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
 
“I applaud the efforts of Phil and the other riders who are bringing awareness to MS on their adventure to bike the U.S. for MS,” said Architect, executive director for QualityPro and membership director for the NPMA. “The dedication of friends and colleagues in our industry who volunteer their time and energy is amazing.”
 
Phil Cooper, president and CEO of Cooper Pest Solutions and BedBug Central began biking across the United States on June 1, and is part of the Bike the US for MS team, raising awareness for multiple sclerosis. When he finishes in August, Cooper will have ridden 3,780 miles in 60 days. He started in Virginia and will end in California with other members of the Bike the US for MS team.
