Sporting a team of almost 30 riders, Eramosa Engineering participated in the annual MS Bike tour in Niagara, Ontario. The team comprised of Eramosa employees, friends and clients, was able to raise more than $36,000 towards the search for a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
Like last year, Eramosa also had a junior team consisting of school-age members who on its own raised an additional $10,000 towards the cause!
The MS bike ride is a nine year old tradition of Eramosa Engineering that was started by company founder Tim Sutherns. At the time, a friend of his had been diagnosed with MS and Tim joined the ride as a way to show his support. From that first ride many years ago, the MS Bike Tour grew into annual, company-wide event for Eramosa. The company has been an active participant in the Niagara Ride, and many other rides across North America, ever since.
This year’s ride was coordinated by Eramosa team member Pete Samson. “The MS Ride is a fun event where everyone gets some good exercise and its all for a very worthy cause,” says Pete, “It something I look forward to every year. The ride also hit home for one of our team members who had a relative pass away from MS only a few weeks before the ride. The MS Bike Tour great way to give back to the community, and provide hope for those affected by MS.”
