Houston, TX- April 20, 2016: Scan Systems proudly rides in BP MS 150 race on April 16th from Houston to La Grange.
The 21-person team was composed of Scan Systems employees and family members and together they raised over $16,200. “I couldn’t be happier with the turnout of this year’s event,” comments Matt Rutledge, VP/General Manager of Scan Systems. “Having a work community that is united in their passion for this cause is truly remarkable and I was honored to raise money and ride alongside such a fantastic group.”
This is Scan System’s second year participating in the MS 150 race, and it won’t be their last. “One of the best parts about this ride and the MS150 organization is the large percentage of proceeds that goes directly to multiple sclerosis research and creating programs for those suffering with MS,” Rutledge explains. “This year I met a woman who suffered from MS, and when she found out I personally have beenriding and supporting this organization for many years, she openly thanked me and our team for helping to save her life. That is what this is all about.”
Scan Systems is proud to be one of many organizations, participants, volunteers, and sponsors who support this great cause and they can’t wait to increase fundraising goals and grow their team for next years’ race.
