Thank You National Sponsors of Bike MS® Inside Out

September 24, 2020

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is pleased to welcome four Bike MS® Inside Out national sponsors this year: Primal, Left Hand Brewing Company, Point B and Valero. Through their partnership and generous support, the work of the National MS Society will not stop in this time of crisis and beyond. Their commitment to supporting communities across the country enables us to come together virtually and fuels life-changing programs and services—like our MS Navigator program—so we can be there for people with MS when they need us most.
 
Primal is proud to continue to support Bike MS as a premier national sponsor in 2020. In addition to providing “I Ride with MS” jerseys, Primal also creates cycling jerseys and custom apparel for Bike MS teams around the country and gives 15% of each purchase back. Through Primal Gives Back® and their partnership with Bike MS, Primal has contributed nearly $2 million in support of the National MS Society.  Primal knows that every dollar raised will count toward advancing research, increasing awareness, improving support and one day, finding a cure for MS. 
 
Left Hand Brewing is a long-term partner of the National MS Society and is dedicated to solving the riddle that is multiple sclerosis. Since 2008, the brewery has been a major contributor to the Society through its Bike MS National Team, Team Left Hand, raising nearly $5 million.  Along with this amazing milestone and their sponsorship of the Bike MS Series, Left Hand Brewing Co. has also released a beer, ‘Wheels Gose ‘Round”, a lemon peel and raspberry gose, brewed to raise awareness and funds for Team Left Hand and Bike MS.
 
Point B has supported Bike MS for the past 16 years and counting.  Throughout those years, Point B has become one of our top National teams and has raised approximately $2 million in support of the National MS Society’s mission. Through riding and fundraising, Point B is reshaping life with MS today, and we are grateful for their commitment to help end MS forever.
 
Valero is proud to be a strong corporate partner with the National MS Society and since 2000, Valero and the Velo Valero bike team have contributed more than $22 million, including a long-time sponsorship of the Valero Ride to the River. Valero gives back in so many ways, from the products they make to fueling the production of items like bike helmets, water bottles, bike shorts, and tires, just to name a few.  Even the asphalt on paved roads comes from petroleum-based products, ensuring a smooth ride from start to finish.  Valero is proud to make products that fuel modern life and activities like cycling possible!
 
“We are grateful for the generosity and dedication of our national sponsors to help further the Society’s mission,” said Marisa Hull, Vice President of Bike MS for the National MS Society. “People with MS are counting on us, and we will do whatever it takes to facilitate the breakthroughs needed so each person with MS can live their best lives.”
 
While we are not riding in person this year, our community has never been stronger, or our passion never more evident to supporting our shared vision of creating a world free of multiple sclerosis. Visit bikeMS.org to learn more.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis, and there is currently no cure for MS. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. An estimated 1 million people live with MS in the United States. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, and it affects women three times more than men.
