Everyone knows someone affected by multiple sclerosis. So every summer, Buildium fields a team in Bike MS, a ride from Boston to Cape Cod that raises funds for research to discover new treatments for MS
This year, donations from our corporate sponsors and the fundraising efforts of 64 Buildians — almost twice last year’s number — brought in more than $82,400. Our goal was $75,000. Not only did we sail past that number, we made this year’s list of Top Five Fundraisers!
We couldn’t have done it without the help of some extraordinary people. There are so many to thank, starting with our generous sponsors:
- K1 Investment Management, LLC
- Forte Payment Systems
- Mintz Levin
- EBS Capstone
- APS Realty Group
- Working Planet
- All Property Management
- Silicon Valley Bank
- Caitlin and Cookman Group
- Aber Law Firm
- Insight Performance
On Saturday, June 27, the Buildium team pedaled to earn the donations it raised over the past several months. Riders joined us from as far away as the Bay Area, Portland, and Portugal. Without them, we wouldn’t have met, never mind broken, our fundraising goal. Thank you.
Our rock: our support team
Without these people, we wouldn’t have sported spectacular jerseys, received much-needed moral support along the journey, and enjoyed food, drink, and the company of friends and family at the end of the grueling, but satisfying, 100 miles.
Thank you Mandi, Mary, Ashley, Alex, Mark, Elise, and Jane, and everyone else who volunteered their time, bid on silent auction items, participated in trivia night, contributed a few dollars, or just talked to somebody they know about the importance of MS research.
And once again, a big thank you to our thoughtful sponsors. Your support made a huge difference and will go along way in supporting MS research.
Enjoy the rest of summer 2015, and I hope to see you at Bike MS in 2016!
All the best,
President & Co-Founder
