Multiple Sclerosis, more commonly known as MS, is an autoimmune disease affecting as many as 400,000 people in the United States. With the help of companies like DHL, the leading global brand in the logistics industry, finding a cure can be a lot closer than we think- 175 miles closer, to be exact. Those 175 miles traveled translated to $50,000 in donations for finding a cure for MS.
On March 3 and 4, 85 DHL riders and 50 DHL volunteers took part in the Bike MS 2018 Breakaway from Miami to Key Largo. As the presenting sponsor of Bike MS, this was DHL’s 15th year participating and brought staff from South Florida, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Arizona and Ohio.
Notable participants included No.28 DHL IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay, who was at the starting line at the Florida International University Stadium waving racers on, and Martin Pesta who once again served as captain of the cycling team and lead the team from Miami to Key Largo in just over four hours.
