Team Left Hand Raises $3 Million to Crush Multiple Sclerosis

Team Left Hand is proud to report over $3M in funds raised for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society through Bike MS in their mission to help others with the disease lead productive lives. Founded in 2008, Team Left Hand is a group of employees and friends dedicated to solving the riddle that is Multiple Sclerosis. Nearly 600 participants annually raise funds and collectively ride thousands of miles across Colorado, the Carolinas, Florida, Ohio, Texas and California. Funds raised fund research, advocate for change, and help people living with MS.

Led by Left Hand Brewing Co., Team Left Hand includes 575 riders with 15 employees. “Our ultimate goal is to raise funds to help people lead better lives that are struggling with MS,” shares Chris Lennert, National Team Captain. “If we can leverage our brewery to do good in this world, we’re going to do it.”

In addition to the individual fundraising of Team Left Hand riders, Left Hand Brewing Company has two major fundraisers planned in May. Throughout May, $1 of every pilot beer sold in the Longmont Tasting Room will be donated to Team Left Hand. Left Hand is also hosting an online auction with all proceeds benefiting Team Left Hand.

The Colorado team will participate for the 11th year of riding on June 23 and 24. “The leadership, support and collaboration provided by Team Left Hand continues to drive the team’s fundraising success. Team Left Hand is one of the National MS Society’s largest Bike MS fundraising teams because of dedicated and passionate individuals,” said Stacy Mulder, Vice President, Bike MS – National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

In addition to setting their fundraising goals high, Left Hand Brewing Company will be releasing Wheels Gose ‘Round, a lemon & raspberry gose. This crisp gose was brewed to raise awareness about Team Left Hand and Bike MS and will be available in June.

“For more than a decade our team has ridden hundreds of thousands of miles, volunteered tens of thousands of hours and raised millions of dollars thanks to the humbling efforts of the riders, sponsors, volunteers and employees,” said Sara Barfoot, Team Left Hand National Coordinator.
