The funds we save through generosity like [New Horizon Security’s] help us raise more money for those we serve.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
New Horizon Security Services, Inc., a family-owned and operated professional security services firm, donated security services to the 2013 Bike MS: Ride Virginia charity event. The annual two-day event raises money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis research in hopes of one day finding a cure.
“One of our officers knew an event organizer who had inquired about security for the ride,” New Horizon Security Director of Security Operations Doug Snyder said. “We offered to perform the services and had initially agreed on a rate, but shortly thereafter we decided that – in the spirit of the event – we would donate the services in their entirety to the organization.”
During the overnight hours of June 1 to June 2, armed security officer Sgt. Michael Onsel ensured the security of more than 500 participants’ vehicles and gear, as well as various sponsor trailers, tents, starting line structures and other valuable items.
According to Onsel, the development manager at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) Central Virginia Chapter, Tiffany Epley, said the donation was greatly appreciated.
“The funds we save through generosity like [New Horizon Security’s] help us raise more money for those we serve,” Epley wrote in an emailed message.
More information about the event will be featured in the summer edition of the NMSS newsletter "MS Connection," which is set to be released at the end of June.
