Metroflor's Crush MS Campaign has exceeded its $25,000 fundraising goal to help raise awareness and funds for supporting the fight against Multiple Sclerosis (MS), according to the company.
More than $31,000 was raised through a crowd-funding initiative and the MS Charity Golf Tournament, held on Aug. 30. Pitting Metroflor employees, customers and friends in a friendly golf challenge at the Mill River Country Club in Stratford, Conn., the nearly 50 golfers netted $21,000 for the cause.
“We are so grateful to our employees, customers and friends who have so generously supported our Crush MS Campaign," said Russ Rogg, president and CEO of the company. "We hope our contribution to the cause will help further research and hopefully a cure for this insidious disease, which affects an estimated 400,000 people in the U.S. and 2.5 million worldwide.”
