The National MS Society is proud to partner with National Teams that are making a powerful difference for people living with MS. These teams make their impact by supporting multiple events across the country, through team engagement regardless of geographic location. In 2016, National Teams collectively raised over $10 million to fund critical research and services to help people living with MS and their families.
For corporate teams, this program provides a unique networking opportunity for employees; for Friends and Family teams, this program connects people in the MS movement across the country.
Motivated by a committed National Team Captain and a world free of MS, National Teams are provided with a dedicated Society liaison, team web page, and a suite of resources and tools to help maximize fundraising results and revenue.
11 years ago, Salesforce was around a thousand-employee company and a new Bike MS team was hatched with a dozen riders at a single event, Waves to Wine. Over the years as the company has grown, so too has the team. Salesforce is now nearly 25,000 employees, and has 300 riders participating in Bike MS events across 10 states with a goal of raising $500,000 to support the National MS Society.
This tremendous growth was made possible by engaging the entire Salesforce community of employees, customers, partners, friends, and family members to both ride and support the cause. Their partners make it possible to reward individual fundraising efforts with Salesforce team cycling gear and other prizes. And their success is inspiring other companies to get involved and start teams as well!
As this awesome national team proves, when personal passion and corporate support intersect, incredible things can happen. Thank you Salesforce & Friends for being a part of Bike MS!
