Gloucester, City NJ – On Saturday, June 4th NEST continues their partnership with the MS Society by participating in Muck Fest MS Philadelphia. Muck Fest MS consists of a 5k mud run and obstacle course in support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In addition to events like Muck Fest MS, NEST employees hold various fundraisers in the office with the hopes of reaching their corporate goal of $10,000+. To date, the NEST team has raised $7,175.70 to be donated directly to the cause.
“The MS Society is a cause close to our hearts and Muck Fest has become a NEST tradition since our initial participation in 2014,” says Rob Almond, CEO. “We are proud to announce that with the help of 48 NEST employees along with their friends and family who signed up for the event we have raised $4,500. The remaining balance of our fundraising efforts will be used to support our team in the City to Shore Bike Ride for MS in September. I am amazed at how our team grows and how we exceed our corporate goal year after year.”
The “MS” part of Muck Fest MS stands for multiple sclerosis, a chronic and often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. MS is unpredictable and affects every individual differently. Women are 2 to 3 times more likely to get MS, and it affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide. This is the reason we come together — to rally friends in support of people living with MS in our community. That’s why 100% of your donation benefits the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
