Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser. It all started...
Five short years ago, Jordan Zimmerman, Chairman and CEO of Zimmerman Advertising, and Pat Patregnani, President of Zimmerman Advertising, were on a quest to inspire and rally their associates. Hoping to apply the company’s energy and enthusiasm to a higher cause, their discovery of the annual charity bike ride for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society turned out to be bigger and more powerful than anything they’d imagined.
Committed from the start, with four rookie riders learning to handle a steady 16 to 17 mph, that first ride was the humble beginnings of zMotion. What was originally only a small company effort led by Pat Patregnani, Mike Schweiger, Cliff Courtney, and Brad Granda, is well on its way to 1,000 enthusiastic riders and a national presence. What was once training events for various charity bike rides has grown into inspiration, focus, and irreplaceable bonding for the local and regional cycling communities. What started as a rallying point for employees has resulted in over $1.2 million raised for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and other charities, and will continue to grow throughout 2010 and beyond.
An unstoppable, undeniable force of energy, charisma, and positivity, we ride because it’s good for us, and great for others. We ride because we love the camaraderie, the momentum, the adrenaline, and the contagious hope. We ride because we can, and because we’re making a real difference. We ride to fight against various diseases, such as MS and Diabetes. We’re the perfect group to show them the door.
