Kevin Bikes America
On Sunday May 8th, longtime Morris Educational Foundation supporter and Morristown resident, Kevin McNally, is embarking on a lifelong goal to ride his bike across the country. He will begin on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8, by dipping the rear wheel of his bike into the Pacific Ocean in Manhattan Beach, CA and starting the nearly 2-month bike ride to the Boston area where he will dip his front tire into the Atlantic Ocean at the completion of his 3,396-mile ride!
His lifelong goal of biking across the country has taken on a very special meaning in remembrance of his son, Brian who died almost four years ago. Capt. Brian McNally USMC was a lifelong New Jersey resident, raised in Morris Township, attended Morris School District schools and graduated from Morristown High School 2006. Brian was a graduate of The Citadel, a Captain in the US Marine Corps and a NJ State Police Officer. Growing up he served in several capacities locally - in Morris Township, as a Firefighter, EMT, and Eagle Scout. Learn more about Capt. Brian McNally by clicking here.
In memory of Brian McNally, the McNally Family established The Capt. Brian J. McNally USMC Scholarship through the Morris Educational Foundation to honor the life of Morristown High School Alumnus, Capt. Brian J. McNally USMC, an American Patriot, who exemplified a life dedicated to volunteerism and service to his schools, community, state and country. As Kevin pedals across the USA, it is the McNally's hope to collectively raise additional funds for this amazing scholarship for Morristown High School seniors who will pursue a First Responder related degree in college.

It is with great pride that Kevin is embarking to fulfill his lifelong dream of biking across the United States, while honoring Brian's memory and legacy of service as Kevin challenges himself during this endeavor. Kevin and Barbara created a blog for supporters to follow along with this adventure of a lifetime, which will be updated on a regular basis.
