FedEx recognizes that its impact is greater than the services it provides and is committed to being a great place to work, a thoughtful steward of the environment and a caring citizen in the communities where its workers live and work.

More importantly, it is committed to building strong local communities through involvement from its employee-supported FedEx Cares program. FedEx Cares supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Bike MS, the premiere fundraising cycling series in the nation, with a choice of 100 rides nationwide.

The Pacific South Coast Chapter has supported Bike MS since 2004, with more than 2,000 cyclists and hundreds of volunteers participating annually, riding from Irvine to San Diego–up to 150 miles over two days–and raising more than $2.3 million dollars annually for MS programs, services and research. The local team, led by team captain John Hinckley, has contributed nearly $165,000 in 12 years, sponsors a rest stop on the ride and provides corporate donations, along with in-kind transportation. Each member is committed to raising $400, with many raising much more.

 “I am proud to be a member of the FedEx Cares team and support NMSS. This will be my 12th year riding in Bike MS. My hope is that the dollars we raise will be the dollars that find the cure for this disease, and we can then enjoy a victory ride. Until then, I’ll keep pedaling!!” John Hinckley, FedEx Freight Managing Director, Operations
