Houston, TX – The Keller Williams (KW) Southwest Cycling Team is ready to hit the road for a cause, yet another example of the company’s mission to “Giving where we live.”
Heading the 19-member team are veteran riders, Captain Joe Rothchild and Co-Captain Norman Lew. Rothchild, organizer of the KW Southwest team, rides his 7th year for MS 150 team. In addition to the KWSW agents and brokers, numerous other friends and family support the efforts by riding along with the group.
Rothchild has a passion for riding and physical health. He wanted a cycling team to support the National MS Society fundraising efforts and with the help of Norman Lew, Agent Services Director, they got the team “off the ground and running.” Each year with Rothchild’s support, a team of volunteers plan and work the details for a flawless and memorable ride for the cycling team.
Lew explained that not only are they raising funds for a worthy cause, they get the chance to do much more. “I just love riding. Finding new routes, new sights to see and new riders to meet and ride with. Getting lost along the way is part of the fun. Cyclists have a common goal—fitness and joy of the wind in our face,” he said. “Riding in the BP MS150 and raising money for the National MS Society helps them continue their research and get closer to a cure. It also helps so many riders keep in shape.”
The BP MS 150 is a two-day fundraising bike ride organized by the National MS Society. The ride is the largest event of its kind in North America with 13,000 cyclists, 3,500 volunteers and countless spectators along the route and at the finish line in Austin. The 2015 BP MS 150 had a record breaking year raising $20.3 million dollars, bringing hope to many who are living with multiple sclerosis.
Mark Naegli, BP MS150 Executive Director, expressed his appreciation for the dedication and perseverance of the KW Southwest Cycling Team and their multi-year participation. “We recognize the contribution of this great team and understand the commitment it takes to year after year to join us for this endeavor.”
