E-Racers Recognized as a Best Dam Bike Ride Top Tier Team

Aug. 22, 2012

Nine members of the team E-Racers rode in this year’s Bike MS: TOYOTA Best Dam Bike Ride, August 4-5. Raising more than $20,000 in pledges, E-Racers was designated one of the event’s Top Tier Teams, joining 13 other teams who reached that level of giving. The money raised helps fund multiple sclerosis research and related services.

“Our team puts so much hard work into training and fundraising every year, and the weekend of Bike MS is always such a rewarding experience for all of us. Everyone on the E-Racers feels very fortunate to be able to participate. We remain dedicated to fundraising for the MS Society because each one of us knows and loves someone with MS, and we can see the impact the work of the MS Society has on the lives of those living with MS and their families. Bike MS is an extraordinary, fun, and addicting experience,” said team captain and Shorewood resident Jennifer Conigliaro, who marked her 10th year with the event this year.

The 29th annual Bike MS: TOYOTA Best Dam Bike Ride brought together nearly 1,700 registered riders and volunteers for the two-day event, which traveled from WCTC in Pewaukee, overnighted at UW-Whitewater, and then finished on Sunday at WPS in Madison. Riders chose from 50-, 75- or 100-mile route options each day, as well as a new 25-mile one-day loop that was open on Saturday. Each rider was asked to raise a minimum of $300. More than $1.2 million has already been pledged, and donations will be accepted until September 14 to achieve the event’s $1.5 million goal.

Registration for next year’s 30th anniversary Bike MS: Best Dam Bike Ride is already open at www.bikeMSwisconsin.org or by calling (262) 369-4400 or (800) 242-3358.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving. It is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with MS two to three times more common in women than men. While the progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease.
