July 17, 2019 STURGEON BIKE MS TEAM RACES HARD, RAISES MORE THAN $29K
TWENTY-EIGHT RIDER TEAM SUPPORTS NATIONAL MS SOCIETY
Sturgeon Electric sponsored Bike MS Colorado for a fourth year, participating in this year’s ride the last weekend of June.
The 28-rider Sturgeon team knocked its fundraising goal of $25,000 out of the park, raising more than $29,250 (and counting) for the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society.
Bike MS is the fundraising cycling series for the National MS Society and it raises more money than any other cycling event. To date, cyclists, volunteers, and donors have raised more than $1.3 billion to support programs, research, and services for those who live with the challenges of MS.
This year, the Colorado event brought in more than $2.8 million with the help of more than 500 volunteers who contributed hundreds of hours of time — worth an estimated $84,000.
The Sturgeon Electric Team spent two hot days cycling from Front Range Community College to Fort Collins and back again enjoying over 150 miles of fresh mountain air and breathtaking views. This year, two Sturgeon Electric riders flew in from Tucson, Arizona for the event. Casey Peck, Jason Lopez, and Chris Wilocki rode hard and fast and finished early.
Participants included Tobi Collins, Nick Costanza, Sergio Perez, Brian Starke, Cheryl Steiner, Jeff Waneka, Christopher Wilocki, Jason Lopez, Casey Peck and 19 family members and friends.
Congratulations to all the Sturgeon Electric employees and their friends and family for teaming up and crossing the finish line for a great cause!
