Autonomic has announced that the company will sponsor a team to cycle in the battle against Multiple Sclerosis. Team Autonomic will be participating in the Bike MS NYC fundraiser being held on October 2.
Limited to a maximum of 5000 cyclists, Bike MS NYC offers participants the choice of three routes — 30, 50, or 100 miles in length including traffic-free views of Manhattan, the Lincoln Tunnel, and the George Washington Bridge. The objective is to race for a world free of Multiple Sclerosis, and Team Autonomic has set out to raise a target of $5000.
“We have formed a team for Bike MS NYC because the National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research than any other private organization,” said Autonomic co-founder, CEO, and team captain, Michael de Nigris.
In addition to supporting studies which hope to reveal the cause and course of the disease, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society also provides education, programs, and services to everyone who is affected by MS — including the diagnosed, their friends and families, and the healthcare professionals who work with them.
Team Autonomic encourages anyone interested in supporting this worthy cause to join the team as a participant or volunteer, make an online donation or send in a check.
