Employees and friends of coatings industry publisher Technology Publishing Co. joined the fight against multiple sclerosis last weekend, biking 150 miles to raise nearly $9,000.

Technology Publishing Co. (TPC) publishes JPCL: Journal of Protective Coatings and Linings, PaintSquare News, Durability + Design magazine, D+D News, JPCL Europe and Paint BidTracker.

Team TPC participated in Bike MS: Keystone Country Ride 2014 over July 19 and 20. The bike ride, sponsored by the National MS Society, covered 150 miles from Hollidaysburg, PA, to State College, PA, and back.

MS is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. About 400,000 Americans and 2.3 million individuals worldwide have been diagnosed with the disease, according to national and international MS organizations.

The U.S. estimate has more than tripled since the early 1980s, according to the National MS Society.

Meet Team TPC

For its first year in the event, Team TPC (Technology Publishing Company) was led by captains Andy Folmer and Tricia Chicka, who both rode in the event as individuals last year.

The team's other riders included employees Michele Lackey, Josiah Lockley and WIll Dodds, and friends Gina Fleitman, Ken Fisher, and Tom Berna.

Bike MS is a personal cause for TPC; the team rode for coworkers who are living with MS.

Team TPC trained almost every Saturday from May until the event.

Donations Still Sought

As of July 22, Team TPC had raised $8,915 in donations for MS research and support programs.

Online donations are still being accepted. Donations may be made through Aug. 22 on the team page.
