One Night with 5 Awards

Wow there is incredible news to report to all of our riders. On November 9, Team Evesham received recognition from both the American Cancer Society and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for their respective 2011 Bike rides.  Ok, here goes, drum roll please, the BIG NEWS is a follows:

On Wednesday night at the Cancer Awards ceremony, in Cherry Hill, Team Evesham was recognized as the Rookie Team of the year. In addition, we also received recognition as a Bronze level team. Thanks to Jay, Brad, Dave, and Dennis for attending and representing the team. The team raised more than $10,000 for this ride.

Also on Wednesday, in Philadelphia, at the MS Awards, Team Evesham was recognized as the Top Friends and Family Team and we were also among the top 5 teams in overall total fundraising, with your efforts we raised over $81,000. Thanks to Walt, Lisa, Kristie, Ross, and Sam for representing the team.

I have to share with you the incredible accomplishment that your participation has meant. Only three years ago, we started Team Evesham with 8 riders in the MS City to Shore event. In the three years since we founded the team, we have now raised over $200,000 to aid in the fight against MS. In my wildest dream I never envisioned having so many friends out to ride with us. I am a lucky guy because I get to meet so many spectacular people.

When I looked at the growth of our weekly rides I have to tell you it is just amazing to see so many folks at Panera on the weekends.  I looked back at my calendar and then I realized that with all of our charity rides this year; Bike New York, Unity Tour, Livestrong, Juvenile Diabetes, Cancer, MS, Tour de Shore, Pedal from the Promenade, etc., our team contributed over $120,000 to various charities this year.

Thank you for making Team Evesham and our Sunday rides an enormous success.
