Ridgefield, NJ (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
Toufayan announced a new partnership with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for 2014-2015. The company, one of the largest and oldest family-owned bakeries in the United States, will work with the Society to provide food for participants in events that promote awareness and education around MS.
Toufayan’s corporate headquarters are in Ridgefield, New Jersey, with manufacturing plants in Plant City and Orlando, Florida, leading to the choice of those two states as the main epicenters for their campaign to support the National MS Society.
Through Walk MS, Bike MS events, and even a fun obstacle course and mud run with more than 4,000 participants called Muckfest MS, Toufayan has already kicked off the partnership with strong support for the Society’s initiatives in 2014. In September, Toufayan will donate food for two more Bike MS events in New Jersey, as well as the PGA TOUR Cycle to the Shore, which takes participants along scenic back roads down the gorgeous Florida coastline.
“Greg and I showed that the Toufayans are not afraid to get some dirt under their fingernails to support the community this past June,” said Karen Toufayan, chief marketing officer for Toufayan, referencing her run at Muckfest 2014, in which she and her brother Greg Toufayan, chief operations officer for Toufayan, ran alongside the other obstacle course participants. “In the same way we dove into the mud to support MS that day, we’re ready and excited to dive into this partnership and benefit our local community through our whole-hearted support of this truly amazing and effective organization.”
“When Toufayan made the decision to get involved with our Chapter we were excited to partner with a home-grown company in our community,” said Jim Roberts, president of the New Jersey Metro Chapter of the Society. “And, several events later, it's clear that Toufayan has really made our mission a priority. The entire company and their staff whole-heartedly made a commitment to our cause; and, we're privileged to have such a great partner alongside us as we strive for a world free of MS."
