Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Prescott Pailet Benefits was honored to sponsor the Feisty Devils as they participated in this past weekend’s SAM’S CLUB Ride. The Bike MS: SAM’S CLUB Ride was a two-day journey through the scenic countryside of North Texas from Frisco to Texas Motor Speedway. The event raised money for The National MS Society, which helps people affected by multiple sclerosis by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.
Over 115 teams signed up and an estimated 3,000 people attended the SAM’S CLUB Ride. The Feisty Devils are the top fundraising team in DFW and one of the top teams in the country. Their 170 riders raised over $136,000 for the ride and over $1.9 million since they became a team 12 years ago. Alyce Levy, one of the captains, started the team after she was diagnosed with MS and it has grown from 14 members to over 200!
Sharon Kushner, Prescott Pailet Benefits’ Vice President of Operations, has raised thousands for the cause as a previous Feisty Devils rider. This year, since she’s unable to ride due to an injury, she volunteered out at the team’s tent at the finish line.
“This is an incredible event with such great energy surrounding a very worthy cause," Kushner said. "The Levys, captains of the Feisty Devils, are so inspiring and tireless advocates for the MS Society!”
