Top New York moving company Shleppers Moving & Storage is proud to announce its recent donation of time, trucks and support to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society which hosted four Walk MS events which took place at Rye Playland, Bear Mountain State Park, the Goshen Historic Track and the Carmel Fire Department on April 17-18, 2010.
These events are the premier fundraising events for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in the NY Metropolitan area. To conduct four events at four different locations was a major challenge for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and for its marketing partner, Lead Dog Marketing. Shleppers played a key role in transporting and storing goods for several days leading up to the events, and then Shleppers’ expert movers unloaded tables and chairs for the event, set up tents, and helped to hang signage and banners around the event vicinity. On April 17th, for the events at Rye Playland and Bear Mountain State Park, Shleppers personnel assisted by handing out water and stacking trucks, and set up a Shleppers tent from which they also gave away Frisbees, T-Shirts, umbrellas, and more. The four events were a huge success, attracting more than 4,000 participants, sponsors and volunteers. With seven Walk MS events happening throughout the tri-state area that same weekend, Walk MS will raise $3.0 million to create a world free of multiple sclerosis.
“All of us at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society want to extend our deepest gratitude to the Shleppers team for the exceptional job done with the logistical setup, storage, breakdown and route coordination for the 2010 Walk MS events” comments Barbara Evans, Vice President, Development for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s NYC-Southern NY Chapter. “Many thanks to the entire Shleppers team for a job well done, and for helping the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in its mission to create a world free of multiple sclerosis. Their donation of trucks and services truly helps us come closer to achieving this mission.”
“We were privileged and delighted to take part in supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society this year,” comments Shleppers President, Jason Friedland. “We do so much charitable work, but had never done anything with the MS Society before, and we were very happy to be involved with our people and trucks–it’s a truly worthy cause.”
