A total of 180 riders and 200 volunteers participated in “Bike MS NANA/Colt: From Hope to a Cure,” a Sept. 6-7 biking event from Hope to Seward, Alaska and back again.
The event raised more than $130,000 to assist Alaskans with Multiple Sclerosis. NANA/Colt Engineering (now called NANA WorleyParsons) was the title sponsor for the event, which is annually the largest fundraiser for the Alaska Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
“NANA/Colt was our first title sponsor since the ride started four years ago,” said Ben McCulloch, development coordinator for the Alaska Chapter. “Not only did they support us monetarily but their volunteers stepped up to the plate at rest stops and other stations throughout the two-day event. Their commitment to this important cause helped make it a success.”
Funds raised during the event go to providing programs and services for people with MS and their families here in Alaska.
