When a gynecologist customer of ours wrote in to ask if we'd help design some bicycle jerseys for her all-OB/GYN team called the Menstrual Cycles, we almost died from glee. What could be more fun than a uterus on a bicycle? This ranks as one of our fave not for profit projects ever. Her bike team is riding to help raise money for Multiple Sclerosis research. For those of you that don't know, MS is a pretty awful disease where the immune system attacks the central nervous system, hence the brain hugging the uterus. She's also going to make a few shirts to continue fundraising for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society after the Waves to Wine 2009 ride is over (Sept. 12-13 in Northern California), so we'll post a link to those tees once they are available for sale, or better yet, sponsor their team by making a small donation, or you can ride with them, or just volunteer!
It's been a while since we checked in with Team Menstrual Cycles, our favorite band of bike-riding gynecologists who are on a mission to raise money for multiple sclerosis research. Turns out the team raised over $50,000, and they won a prize for best jersey design! Go go go! Check out the brains on that team. We were so so happy to work with them on their jerseys. They are planning to raise more funds with t-shirts of similar design, so we will keep you posted on how you can contribute to MS research.
