Tacoma, Wash. (Oct 18, 2018) – Milgard Windows & Doors, with the support of Masco Corporation, raised over $35,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society through their participation in Bike MS, putting them in the top 10 of company fundraising for the third year in a row.
The Bike MS: Deception Pass Classic, is a two-day ride through Skagit, Whatcom and Island Counties of Washington State. On September 8th, 1,100 riders and 300 volunteers participated in the event which raised funds to further multiple sclerosis research.
Milgard had a team of ten volunteers and riders made up of employees, family and friends to help the cause. The volunteers began their day at 7am creating two separate rest stops at the beginning and the end of the route to support each and every rider in need.
“The Milgard Team of riders and volunteers, as always, brings family and friends together for a day of giving back,” said Tim Large, Milgard ERP Core team. “A perfect day for riding and volunteering for the fight for a world free of MS. I cannot be more proud of the group we bring to the Deception Pass Classic each and every year.”
This was the seventh year in a row Milgard has participated in the event.
