“The outstanding level of support that we received from the donors, the volunteers, and the communities through which we rode was truly inspiring,” remarked Mr. Thor on the ambiance of the race.

Colliers International | Pittsburgh participated in the ride as part of “The Big EL” team. The Big EL raised the second highest amount of donations totaling $34,481.

“It is through the ongoing and incredible support of riders like Mr. Broujos and companies like Colliers International l Pittsburgh, that help us support people living with MS in our local community,” said Anne Mageras, President of the PA Keystone Chapter. “I am always amazed at the number of riders that join us each year to pedal up the western Pennsylvania hills and to raise critical dollars to fund our local services and our research efforts.  We can’t thank Mr. Broujos enough for his long-time commitment to the event and for his passion to put an end to MS, forever.”
