The MS150 Bay to Bay bike ride is one of the nation’s largest charity biking events with more than 2,500 riders pedaling from Orange County to Mission Bay in San Diego to raise funds for the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. The team from Disneyland Resort is traditionally one of the largest corporate teams, with nearly 100 riders this year.
For the last 15 years, I have supported this important cause with my fellow cast members. I began supporting the MS Society after one of my colleagues – a dear friend here at the Disneyland Resort – was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. For the past decade, I have been a part of the MS Society’s “tour of champions” who are riders that raise $10,000 or more on a given ride. Overall, I am proud to have raised $265,350 over the 15 years I have been riding.
The Walt Disney Company is so supportive of the causes that are important to its cast. The company matches qualified donations raised by our cast members, and last year Team Disney raised $131,000. The MS150 ride brings together all the riders at the Disneyland Resort with healthy camaraderie and a good cause. I am really proud of our group of Team Disney riders!
