When MTS Logistics announced plans to postpone our 10th Annual Bike Tour with MTS for Autism, originally scheduled for June 2020, to September 2020, we were hoping that things would be back to normal in the U.S. Unfortunately, that is not the case. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and NYC health regulations, MTS Logistics has made the decision to cancel this year’s bike tour event.
After raising over $50,000 for autism awareness in 2019, we had already raised another $32,000 months before this year’s event. All proceeds were scheduled to be donated to Spectrum Works, a nonprofit that provides job training and employment to young adults with autism. However, due to the cancellation of this year’s event, MTS Logistics will be returning donations raised from our sponsors. This year only, to support our respected charity partner Spectrum Works, we will instead donate $10.00 on behalf of each of our clients for a total donation of $9,000.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their commitment to this great cause. Thank you to our amazing sponsors.
MTS Logistics President Sedat Saka said:
“I am very sorry that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to postpone our 10th Annual Bike Tour with MTS for Autism event. This event is near and dear to myself and the entire MTS Logistics team. We had hoped to make it work, but the logistics and safety measures made the event unfeasible for 2020. We will be back better than ever next year.”
MTS Logistics deeply regrets we cannot hold this wonderful event – an MTS Logistics tradition for ten years now! But we plan to bike next year in June 2021 for an even bigger event. See you then and please stay safe and healthy in these unprecedented times.
