Announcements for Penn Presbyterian Medical Center

Join the MS-150

Be a part of what Bicycling Magazine names the “Best Cycling Getaway in NJ”, and help raise money for MS. In the past 17 years, Team UPHS/PENN has raised over $1.7 million in the MS-150 Bike to Shore Tour and, with your help, it could surpass the $2 million mark this year for overall fundraising! 

Penn Medicine and the National MS Society have a longstanding partnership that benefits all those people who are affected by multiple sclerosis. The MS Society has invested over $6.2 million dollars in UPHS research since 2004, including over $1.8 million dollars in the last four years alone. UPHS receives more funding for research from the MS Society than any other Philadelphia area institution. 

Mark your calendars: This year’s ride is on October 3 and 4. Click here to learn more and to register for the ride.
