CECO MS150 Team Notes…

Susan-MS-150-bike-giftSusan Bickham says her favorite MS150 memory was when a new Marin Portofina road bike with special components was rolled into her office at Compressor Engineering Corporation (CECO) on Friday, January 30, 2009. The bicycle enables Susan, who has MS, to fulfill her goal of riding in the BP MS150, a 2-day ride from Houston to Austin each year to raise money for research into Multiple Sclerosis and support for those afflicted by the crippling disease.

Six CECO associates contributed to the cause: Joe Miniot, Justin Russell, Gene Thompson, Jim Hutton, Bruce Hotze and Bill Zeis had watched Susan train on a bike designed more for dirt than road. So they purchased the road bike for her.

“I was never more touched than when the guys rolled that awesome bike in to my office and presented it to me. It was an overwhelming gesture and a wonderful surprise but completely in character with this close knit group who are more like brothers than co-workers. This was a gift from the heart that touched me deeply. Their ongoing support has been a blessing. Without these guys I could never make the trek from Houston to Austin each year.”

Susan and her son, Zeke will be riding in this year’s MS150. We wish all of the CECO and TransCanada Team members good weather and a safe ride Saturday and Sunday, April 16-17, 2016.
