Team CSX Wins Top Fundraising Trophy at Bike MS Event


A group of 181 employees, family and friends rode their bicycles miles along Florida’s First Coast Oct. 10-11 for a great cause. Team CSX participated in the Bike MS PGA Tour Cycle to the Shore to help raise $1.5 million to fund multiple sclerosis research. The team included employees from throughout the system, including the Jacksonville, Atlanta and Louisville divisions.

Team CSX raised $125,000  and for the fourth year in a row, the team captured the Sunshine Cup, given to the team with the highest fundraising total.

The route started at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, winding along A1A through St. Augustine and ending on the boardwalks of Daytona Beach.

Team CSX co-captain Erik Henderson, manager of information technology, said team members began training for the event last spring.  Team CSX also participates in charity rides in Virginia, Ohio and New York. Many of the participants are retired and have been with the team since its debut in 1996.

“Many of us are very passionate about the cause,” Erik said. “We do it because we know somebody with MS or we like to ride bikes or tackle new challenges. It’s great to have our CSX jerseys out there to build a stronger camaraderie, and it’s all about focusing on what employees are doing to help the community.”

Technical Director and team co-captain Charles Pack got involved in the charity in 2010 for fun and later learned that his daughter’s school teacher had MS. Pack said the competition is a blast, but the fundraising is what matters at the finish line.

“I’m not a professional at riding bikes, but when I figured out that this was a way to help, I was convinced that this was the charity I needed to be involved in,” he said.

Next year will be Team CSX’s 20th anniversary of participating in charitable bike rides.
