Round Two: Cycling for a Cause in the 2019 BP MS 150 Ride

May 2019 | Dallas, TX — Over the final weekend in April 2019, RealFoundations partnered again with long-time client, Greystar Real Estate Partners, to participate in the annual BP MS 150 charity bike ride from Houston to Austin, TX. This event directly benefits multiple sclerosis research through raising funds that support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The 54 cyclists that comprised Team Greystar included RealFoundations practitioners Alex Cross, Lori Tobin, Rick Cline, Robert Santiago, and C.T. Bochau, as well as RealFoundations Founder, David Stanford.

During this 2-day event, Team Greystar bikers navigated challenging winds and warm temps throughout the 150-miles of beautiful Texas countryside, collectively pedaling over 8,000 miles. Combined, RealFoundations contributed and its six riders raised ~$13,500 in charitable funds towards the cause. Collectively, Team Greystar’s total fundraising this year for the National MS Society campaign has exceeded $114,000 (and still counting).

Witnessing 9,500+ fellow cyclists traverse 150 miles is an impressive spectacle. Speaking on behalf of the entire team, the true motivation for participation are the individuals and families whose lives have been affected by multiple sclerosis. Additionally, we remain inspired by the demonstrated and sustained commitment of the National MS Society to raise awareness and lead the charge in seeking solutions to eradicate the disease.
