NRG cycling team
Formed in 2005, members of the NRG cycling team have combined their passion for riding with their enthusiasm for effecting positive change in the community. The flagship event for this all-region, traveling team is the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's BP MS 150 charity ride from Houston to Austin. The event set a new record in 2015, raising $20.3 million to help find a cure for MS.
NRG participants cycled more than 150 miles each to participate in the event, and dozens of additional NRG volunteers helped out along the way. To date, NRG has had more than 850 cyclists complete the BP MS 150. Together with NRG, they’ve raised nearly $848,000 for the National MS Society. The team trains throughout the year and also participates in regional events.
