Primo Water Hydrated Bike MS: Tour to Tanglewood Cyclists
Primo served as the official water sponsor of BikeMS in Clemmons, NC
WINSTON-SALEM, NC (Oct. 2, 2018)—As the official water sponsor for Bike MS: Tour to Tanglewood, Primo Water donated 300 five-gallon water bottles to hydrate cyclists along the 200-mile route.
“Cycling for a cure is close to my heart. I have been a rider in the Pan-Mass Challenge for 18 years, raising money for cancer research. I am proud of Primo’s participation in the Tour to Tanglewood this year,” said Primo CEO, Matt Sheehan.
This year, over 950 cyclists participated in the local event, raising close to $657,000 over two days from September 22-23 at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC. Bikers could choose to ride anywhere from 20 to 200 miles to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
BikeMS: Tour to Tanglewood is one of 80 riding events nationwide. The MS Society helps fund cutting-edge research on MS, drives change through advocacy, education and collaboration with MS organizations around the world.
By being the official beverage sponsor of BikeMS: Tour to Tanglewood, Primo was able to stay true to its company mission while supporting a meaningful cause. Primo provided purified water to cyclists using epumps, allowing riders to refill their reusable water bottles rather than producing more waste with single-serve bottles.
