Ashley talks about Bike MS and Team Whiting



my name is Ashley McNamee I work at whiting petroleum corporation so when we were approached with the idea to do the m/s ride we saw it as a way to actually improve the culture within the company this allowed us to get out of our like little shells and departments and work environments and really break out get to know each other and well we had 25 people ride we raised $36,000 we had volunteers from our company helping writers at some of the rest stops we all really benefited from it and the company definitely saw a big improvement in just morale people talking about it raising money around it and just the excitement that it built so it was all positive the interesting thing for us is that when we started talking about MS our employees actually opened up and we realized we had a number of people in the company that had a mess and it made them extremely proud to be at the company knowing that we were writing for them the energy around the events and the people that you're riding with make it totally worthwhile and actually really fun while you're doing it
