Team Up for More Fun! Just Take a Look!
Joining and forming a team is an opportunity to conquer a challenge and share a great experience with friends, family members or co-workers.
Every year, almost 100 companies from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations form teams supporting the Bike MS: Valero ride.
As a part of the MS movement, you and your team are committed to a world free of MS. We’re committed to you and the success of your team. Here are three simple steps to starting a team.
Team members can be anybody— friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors — and they can all easily register as cyclists online. Whether you’re a corporate team or a team of family and friends, just be sure to ask everyone you know.
Fundraising comes more naturally when you make it personal. If you or your team is cycling for someone with MS, ask them if they would be willing to tell their story. Just be sure to follow that with a statement about how much progress we’ve made in treating the disease. Don’t forget to ask everyone who donates to you if their employer offers matching gifts.

3. Really Having Fun!
Being a team captain is an opportunity to share a great experience with friends and family members, or co-workers— a community coming together for a common goal and the accomplishment of a unique personal challenge! As a leader, it’s up to you to remind your teammates of why they registered. Bike MS can be more than a fundraising event —it can be a joyous celebration of how far we’ve come together!
