Twin Cities law firm Murnane Brandt launched its first bike ride team of lawyers, employees, and clients for the 2010 MS 150 Bike Ride, which raised funds for multiple sclerosis (MS) research. In total, Team Murnane Brandt raised more than $12,000 in its inaugural year.
Committed to help free the world of MS, Murnane Brandt established its ride team as a way to bring members of the firm and its clients together for a common cause. Employees, clients, business partners, friends and family are encouraged to sign up for the firm’s 2011 bike team. Team Murnane Brandt plans to double its size to 50 cyclists next year.
In addition to cyclists, hundreds of volunteers are needed each year to pull off this fun event. Next year’s ride will take place June 10-June 12. For information regarding the MS 150 Bike Ride or race day volunteer opportunities, visit the National MS Society, Minnesota Chapter’s Web site.
