HOLT CAT showed its support for Multiple Sclerosis victims by participating in Bike MS: Valero 2012 Alamo Ride to the River on October 13-14, 2012. Members of the company have participated in this event for over 10 years.
The event entailed a 157-mile bike ride going from San Antonio to New Braunfels and back over the course of the weekend. HOLT’s 40 team members took on the challenge, coming together from numerous locations across Texas as well as one rider from Australia.
Together, these HOLT team members have raised $69,973.00 for Multiple Sclerosis as of October 29, 2012. This represents the highest amount of funds raised behind the title sponsor, Valero, and the highest in average fundraising per rider of all teams that participated. TEAM HOLT CAT also has over 10 riders in the Top 100 fundraisers for the event, Club 100.
Additionally, HOLT CAT volunteers man the first ride break point, where riders can rest, re-hydrate and stock up on energy snacks.
Team Captain Aaron Martinez stated, “We have fellow employees and friends and family who struggle with MS. This is what drives us to spend time training for the ride and raising funds to fight this debilitating disease. We have raised a record amount this year and will continue to push to meet our goal.”
