NFI, a leading supply chain solutions provider, supported the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for Bike MS: City to Shore for the ninth year in a row and reinforced its commitment to social responsibility. As the event’s local presenting sponsor and official logistics provider, team NFI consisted of 90 riders and volunteers that raised over $135,000 in donations and logistics services for the two-day event. Since NFI’s partnership 12 years ago, NFI has raised more than $1.4 million.
NFI has participated in the event for 22 years and has been the event’s official logistics provider for nine years, donating time and resources to execute event logistics in preparation for and throughout the ride weekend. The ride is a two-day event where cyclists ride up to 150 miles from Cherry Hill, N.J. to Ocean City, N.J.
“The Bike MS: City to Shore ride has been near and dear to my heart, as well as our drivers, warehouse employees, and support staff that have participated over the past two decades,” said Jeff Brown, President and Vice Chairman at NFI. “As the event’s local presenting sponsor, the event echoes one of NFI’s core values of social responsibility by caring for our community. We are committed to supporting 2.3 million people worldwide that are affected by MS, and contribute toward finding a cure.”
The National MS Society mobilizes people and resources to assist those living with MS and fund research to help find a cure. Last year, the society invested $35 million in more than 340 research projects around the world.
