BBG team pic Yes, you heard right, Innersport and Press Play's Cycling Club, The Berkeley Billy Goats, raised over $11,000 for Multiple Sclerosis.  The Billy Goats will be riding 150 miles from San Francisco to Healdsburg in Sonoma County (Waves to Wine) this weekend.  The Bay Area event has raised over $1,000,000 to date, and we are proud to be a major contributor.  We've spent all summer training, prepping, fundraising, and recovering to prepare for this beautiful ride benefiting MS. We had some fun along the way.  Imagery Winery generously hosted us for some grilled pizzas, wine tasting, and outdoor entertainment after a beautiful ride in Sonoma's Wine Country.  Other rides included treks up to the top of Mt. Diablo, beautiful Lucas Valley, Tomales Bay and of course, our very own east bay hills.  Clif Bar donated our training ride nourishment, Luna Bars. Berkeley Billy Goats will sport their very own jerseys this weekend on the ride, compliments of Innersport and Press Play.  If you would like to purchase a jersey, please contact drjess@innersport.com for details.  Shorts are available, too, but in limited quantities. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system that can cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, and blindness.  It is thought that MS is an autoimmune disease, meaning that the body thinks of it's own self as foreign and incorrectly attacks it's own tissues.  There are approximately 400,000 people with MS in the United States today, with over 2 million people affected worldwide.  Innersport and Press Play are honored to have an opportunity to contribute to research to learn more on how to stop MS.  To learn more about MS and how you can help, click here.
