Team TXU Energy Goes the Distance to Help Find a Cure for MS

Cycling to Beat MS

WP_20160430_06_56_06_Rich_largeDuring the recent 150-mile Bike MS: Sam’s Club Round-Up Ride, more than 80 employees shifted their fundraising efforts into high gear and raised more than $70,000 to support the fight against multiple sclerosis.

Participants could choose to ride as little as 30 miles on Day One or cycle the entire 180 miles throughout the two-day ride. Riders began in Frisco and ended Day One with barbecue at our team tent at Texas Motor Speedway. On Day Two, riders completed a lap around the actual speedway, biked on country roads and crossed the finish line at Sundance Square in Fort Worth.

“Several team members hit the road for the first time and completed both days despite challenging wind conditions and hills,” said Angela Tortorice, Team TXU Energy Bike MS captain and EFH IT performance management senior analyst. “Year after year, our team’s commitment to training and fundraising continues to astound me. This ride is a great opportunity to see how our employees give back to the North Texas community.”

IMG953752Since 2003, employees have raised more than $915,000 to help find a cure for MS, which is estimated to affect more than 400,000 Americans. Team TXU Energy hopes to raise a total of $80,000 by the end of the summer. To help the team reach their goal, find the name of a rider you would like to support on the TXU Energy Bike MS page.

Bike MS Sam’s Club: Round-Up Ride is a two-day fundraising cycling event that takes place from Frisco to Fort Worth. To date, Bike MS has raised more than $1 billion to help those affected by MS and is the number one fundraising cycling series in the country.
