For 11 consecutive years, Team Hess has rallied to participate in and support the BP MS 150, the annual 180-mile, two-day bicycle ride between Houston and Austin, Texas.  Since 2005, their effort has raised $1,030,000 to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

This past April, 110 employees, friends and family members represented Hess and raised $197,399, putting the team over the $1 million mark. Funds raised help fight this devastating disease that affects more than 400,000 people in the United States and 2.5 million people around the world.

“We are proud to recognize Hess in the National MS Society's Circle of Distinction this year for having raised more than $1 million cumulatively through the years as a team,” said Kelli Dreiling, Vice President, Development at the MS Society.

“This significant contribution makes an incredible impact on the Society's mission to create a world free of MS. We look forward to seeing Team Hess again in the 2016 BP MS 150 and thank each rider, volunteer and donor who contributed to achieve the Circle of Distinction honor,” she said.
