Deloitte has formed a team for Bike MS Coastal Challenge because we want to experience a great ride and help the National MS Society fund research, advocate for change and help people with MS. 2017 will be our 14th year in the Bike MS Coastal Challenge ride.
Deloitte has a long history of supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. We are a National Team and our employees and alumni, and their family and friends, participate in Bike MS and Walk MS events across the country. In 2007 Deloitte was the first professional services organization to receive the Corporate Star Award, the MS Society’s highest honor.
Many of us have family and friends with MS, and have seen first-hand the impact that this chronic, often disabling disease can have. Fortunately, new treatments and advances in research, many of them funded by the National MS Society, are giving new hope to people affected by the disease. We are making a difference.
Bike MS is a physical challenge for cyclists of every level, but it’s so much more than just a ride. It’s our way of giving back to the community. It’s a unique opportunity to build connections with colleagues of all ages and levels – our team includes interns, junior staff, partners, and retirees. The camaraderie, passion, and memories that come from sharing this experience with our team will stay with us for a lifetime.
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
