October 17th, 2016 by Editor

With the support of Masco Corporation, employees at the corporate headquarters of Milgard Windows & Doors contributed over $30,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society during their participation in the Bike MS: Deception Pass Classic two-day event.

This year’s Washington state event took place through Skagit, Whatcom and Island counties. The funds were raised to aid in research that’s dedicated to stopping disease progression, restoring lost function and finding a cure for MS. Funds also support programs and services that help people affected by MS live their best lives.

Milgard, with the supporting of Masco Corporation, raised over $30,965 through donations, fundraising and matching gift pledges which was added to the $1.8MM total for all Bike MS events in the Northwest.

“It feels great to be a big part of this amazing effort,” said Tim Large, ERP core team member at Milgard. “Its hard work, but it’s all worth it. Milgard will be there next year to continue to fight for a world free of MS.”

A total of 16 riders participated in the event and another nine Milgard employees were on the volunteer team who manned the rest stop providing food and drinks to the cyclists. This was the fifth year Milgard has participated in the event.
