The SCOOTER Store Supports Fight Against Multiple Sclerosis
Date:4/22/2011

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, April 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- One hundred and eighty miles — Houston to Austin, Texas — that's the challenge bike riders in the BP MS 150 overcame on April 16 and 17 in a fund-raising event for Multiple Sclerosis. Team Freedom, a corporate team sponsored by The SCOOTER Store, the nation's leading provider of power mobility solutions and services, completed the two-day ride and raised nearly $20,000 toward the cause.

The event marked the eighth consecutive year that The SCOOTER Store employees, family members and friends have participated in the event.  The SCOOTER Store partners with its strategic vendors to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

This year, Team Freedom was represented by over 50 riders, most of them employees of the company, and a team of volunteers who provided planning and logistical support for the riders, as well as enthusiastic encouragement throughout the event.

"We are very proud to be a Platinum sponsor of the BP MS 150 event," said Mike Pfister, executive vice president of External Relations and Government Affairs at The SCOOTER Store.  "We have great respect for the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the way they organize the MS 150 bike rides.  Our riders really look forward to participating in this challenging but gratifying event. We are always amazed at the joy we get when crossing the finish line in support of this worthy cause."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system: the brain, optic nerves, and spinal cord. MS may cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, blindness, and more. It is not considered a fatal disease as the vast majority of people with it live a normal lifespan, but they may struggle to live as productively as they desire, often facing increasing limitations. Approximately 12% of customers served by The SCOOTER Store and its complex rehab division, Alliance Seating and Mobility, have a clinical diagnosis of MS.
