ImageFIRST Associates Are Gearing Up to Participate in The National MS Bike Ride

At ImageFIRST, we’ve made it a point to provide as much as we can to the people in our community. Putting gowns, linens, scrubs, cubicle curtains and smiles in every facility we partner with, we also strive to positively impact the lives of those outside of patient care establishments.

Over the years, we’ve proudly built a reputation for charitable giving. We’ve donated our time, our money, our resources and our expertise to worthwhile causes across the country that effect palpable change in the lives of those who need it most. In recent months, we’ve donated our time to bring food to the disadvantaged, facilitate adoption for stray domestic animals, build homes for families in need and much, much more. Our associates take these activities and their purpose to heart, seeking out opportunities to continue enriching the lives of others.

“To build a great company by positively impacting the lives of our associates, our community, our customers and their patients” -- Our Purpose

The ImageFIRST purpose guides our organization towards doing things that unite every associate in creating positive, meaningful change. This month, one team of employees is taking our purpose and running (or biking) with it.

Bill Hughes, ImageFIRST’s Corporate Director of Engineering, assembled a team of associates from across the country to participate in the National MS Bike Ride in Florida. Multiple sclerosis is an issue close to every member of the team. 2.3 million people suffer from the condition and there is still no cure. The team hopes that their ride and funds raised can have some impact on progress towards finding better treatment.

Coming from Chicago, Miami and San Antonio, the associates spent two days biking 100 miles through the state to raise funds for The National MS Society. The team has raised nearly $8,000 towards MS treatment research as of November 3rd. To view the team’s fundraising page, please visit this link.

Bill Hughes and the rest of the National MS Bike Ride team are just a few of the ImageFIRST associates who go out of their way to make a difference in the lives of others. To learn more about recent charitable events in which ImageFIRST has participated, visit www.imagefirst.com/blog.
