Angie Johnson of Alexandria is no stranger to long distance biking, or to the disease of multiple sclerosis (MS). This is her fourth time biking in the MS The Ride Across Minnesota (TRAM) event, and she's watched her dad battle MS for the past 33 years.


Johnson, a wellness exercise specialist with Knute Nelson Wellness Center in Alexandria, participates in the TRAM for the same reason as many others - to raise awareness and help fight MS.
