IHI E&C and its BP MS 150 bike team recently received the 2015 BP MS 150 Gold Safety Award.
The event is a two-charity bicycle ride consisting of a two-day bicycle ride from Houston to Austin (approximately 170-180 miles) raising money in support of the National MS Society (a non-profit organization) that provides support to people with MS, and also helps fund research for the elimination of this disease.
All the IHI E&C members were well trained in Group Riding Safety, took the MS Society safety quiz, and everyone completed the ride safely. Members trained during the season from January – April to get ready for the big ride. Last year more than 13,000 riders registered for this grueling two day event.
The 2015 IHI E&C ride team raised more than $26,000 for the cause. The IHI E&C team consisted of 13 riders and a number of volunteers, with co-captains Kamal Shah and Cheney Lim.
“We had a great group of volunteers who helped the riders during the season as well as on the day of the ride,” said Kamal. “Special thanks to Estella Armatta who took the role of leading the volunteers.”
“We are already preparing for the 2016 BP MS 150, to be held on April 16-17, 2016,” Kamal said.
Congratulations to our IHI E&C colleagues on receiving the MS 150 Gold Safety Award, and grinding out safety on behalf of others, one mile at a time.
