Ellendale, DE - July 15, 2016
On Wednesday, July 13, 2016, DryZone sponsored a Paint Night Fundraiser to raise money for the National MS Society along with several other sponsors. The sponsors include Weller’s Utility Trailers, Beyond Training Wheels, CopyCat Paint Parties, That Granite Place, Brendon T. Warfel Construction, L&W Insurance, and Walls Service Center. With over sixty people at DryZone, the night was full of laughter, smiles, and paint brushes. Not only was paint a huge hit during the event but also the desserts, snacks, and 50/50 raffle.
One of DryZone’s missions is to help serve the community and this paint night fundraiser was a perfect opportunity to sponsor a great cause. Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects every person differently. It has an effect on the brain and spinal cord. Early MS symptoms include weakness, tingling, numbness, and blurred vision.
In 2007, Jason Troyer was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis but that did not stop him from living his life, instead, he turned to biking. Several of Jason’s friends enjoyed biking and asked Jason to join them for the ride, which he did and soon enough an entire team formed. At first, Jason started riding 7.5 miles then 40 miles, which soon turned into 75 miles. At this point he was no longer riding with training wheels, Jason was beyond that. This is where the name “Beyond Training Wheels” came from. Jason and his friends started this bicycle team to raise money for the National MS Society and bring recognition.
As a company, our DryZone team was happy to support the National MS Society. Overall, the fundraiser was a great success and $2,015.25 was raised for the foundation.
