Team Gardere Exceeds 2012 BP MS 150 Fundraising Goal

05.29.12

Team Gardere's 111 dedicated riders made the fundraising pilgrimage from Houston to Austin as part of the annual BP MS 150, pedaling their bicycles 183 miles to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This two-day fundraising ride is the largest event of its kind in North America.

Team Gardere, comrised of Gardere attorneys, staff, family members, clients and friends, closed out its fundraising efforts with an impressive total of $168,346, exceeding its 2012 goal by nearly $20,000 and surpassing its 2011 total by $40,000. 

“The BP MS 150 is an inspiring and unique event. It is very satisfying to achieve a personal goal while, at the same time, raising money that will help to find a cure for this relentless disease,” says Team Gardere Captain Peter Scaff. “When your legs ache and the wind is at your nose, it is the cause that keeps you pedaling.”

Gardere’s participation in the BP MS 150 began about 12 years ago as a show of support when Firm AttorneyJohn Pearson was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. One of the team’s most dedicated members, Mr. Pearson has ridden with the team each year.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
