Participating in 2009 as individual riders in the Bike MS Bay to Bay Tour, two employees from Hansen’s Beverage Company took their support to the next level by getting Hansen’s involved as a sponsor. As one of the leading beverage companies for quality drinks, Hansen’s understands the importance of health and well-being. Team captain, Paul Dechary’s wife was diagnosed with MS two years ago and thought this would be a great wayto do something positive for the cause and for his wife. Team Hansen’s cumulative fundraising total surpassed the $50,000 mark in 2011 helping Bike MS raise more money toward its mission to create a world free of MS.
