Often, our money follows our hearts. That philosophy certainly rings true for Point B's relationship with the National MS Society.
Point B and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society have partnered since 2004 in fundraising cycling series, Bike MS. As our firm has grown from a single Bike MS team in Seattle, we've spread our culture of community involvement through our roles as fundraisers, sponsors, cyclists, and leaders in the NMSS and simultaneously deepened our connection to this disease. Point B participates in Bike MS annually in eight of our market locations across the country and over the years, we have had nearly 2000 riders. Our local Bike MS teams have invested their time and passion and the Society's purpose. These teams keep doing it every year because the rides are incredibly well run and the Society fills them with a great sense of camaraderie and mission.
Over the years, Point B has generated well over $2 million dollars through our fundraising and sponsorship of Bike MS. And, we were the 9th largest national Bike MS team in 2018. But we don't just write checks, we believe passionately in the MS Society's bold vision and strategic approach to ending MS. Point B CEO Mike Pongon sits on the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Board of Directors, and our partnership has become Point B's largest sponsorship and volunteer platform.
