This year Bike MS New York City 2014 was such a great success! All volunteers’ hard work and participation made 2014 Bike MS NYC very memorable! We as MTS Logistics, are proud for being a part of this great event to help raise funds for people living with MS.
More than $2.2 million was raised so far, making 75% progress to reach the goal of raising $3 million to fund comprehensive support and programs for people who live with MS, or their family and friends.Multiple sclerosis or MS is a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, resulting in loss of muscle control, vision, balance, and sensation, such as numbness. With MS, the nerves of the brain and spinal cord are damaged by one’s own immune system. Thus, the condition is called an autoimmune disease.
This year volunteers and fund raisers biked 30, 55, or 100 miles. Bike MS New York City 2014 was held on Sunday, October 5, 2014 where approximately 5,000 cyclists expected to participate. This event offers a traffic-free 30 mile route circling Manhattan, or a traffic-free ride through the Holland Tunnel, to experience the 55 or 100 mile routes that wind through New Jersey, and Rockland County.
Bikers began at 12th Avenue (West Side Highway) and W. 46th St., New York. The finish line festival was at Pier 92/94 – 711 12th Avenue, New York. Once again we thank everyone for their incredible efforts and for joining the Bike MS New York City 2014 movement to have a world free of MS.
