Multiple Sclerosis is very close to us. Our Co-Founder, Brian Owens’ sister Kim has suffered with this debilitating disease for over 15 years and in recent years has been confined to a wheelchair. Brian and his family have watched Kim go from a limp to slowly losing movement in one leg to then affecting both legs. With Kim's permission Brian decided the best way he could help her and others living with MS was calling attention to the disease and using his three restaurants as a platform to both educate and raise money for the National MS Society. In our 7th year we have now raised almost $300,000 with the generous donations from our friends and family propelling our team to achieve the #1 corporate fundraising team in 2021 and 2022.
Brian's unwavering commitment to The National MS Society recently led to him being asked to serve on the Board of Directors for the Greater NYC and Long Island chapter which he proudly accepted.
The National MS Society works tirelessly to develop medication and treatments that slow and ease the disease and make the lives of Kim and countless others a lot more tolerable. The end goal is to one day find a cure.
BIKE MS NYC helps raise funds that support the groundbreaking research work done by The National MS Society.
On Sunday, October 22rd, 2023 our staff, customers, friends, and family will ride together for the 7th year through the glorious city of New York that we all call home. We have challenged ourselves to have our most successful fundraising year yet with the goal of reaching $150,000! But we need your support. Any amount helps and we are grateful to have this platform to help make a difference in a disease that affects women 2-3 times more than men and one that a million people are living with in the United States today.
