On April 12 and 13, more than 140 attorneys with Norton Rose Fulbright will strap on their helmets and pedal 180 miles from Houston to Austin to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. It is the law firm’s first year participating in the BP MS 150 charity event, which—with 13,000 participants—is one of North America’s largest bike rides to raise money for this immune-mediated disease that affects an estimated 2.3 million people worldwide.
The 147 Norton Rose Fulbright attorneys cycling next week come from two dozen of the firm’s offices from across the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South Africa, and the Middle East. According to a press release from the firm, this amounts to the “biggest first-year team in the ride’s 30-year history.”
So far, the global firm has raised more than $100,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Contributions to the BP MS 150 as part of Norton Rose Fulbright’s team can be made at: http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/NortonRoseFulbright. For more information, visit MS150.org.
