Team Left Hand and Ozo Coffee Collaborate to Support Bike MS
LONGMONT, Colo. May 19, 2023 –Team Left Hand, a group of more than 600 cyclists and volunteers supported by Left Hand Brewing Company, is proud to announce they’re teaming up with Ozo Coffee, a Boulder-based roastery, on a special coffee blend named Sprocket to support their Bike MS fundraising efforts.
Sprocket was roasted to be a crowd pleaser with welcoming and approachable flavors like pecan, vanilla, and dark chocolate. From May through October, $3 from every bag sold at Ozo’s five Boulder and Longmont locations or online will be donated to support Team Left Hand and Bike MS.
Since 2008, Team Left Hand has raised more than $6.8 million for the National MS Society, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to combating multiple sclerosis and supporting the Society in funding research, advocating for change, and enhancing the quality of life for individuals with MS and their loved ones.
“On behalf of Team Left Hand, I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Ozo Coffee for their generous donation to this important cause,” said Chris Lennert, Team Left Hand National Team Captain. “We couldn’t be prouder in collaborating with them to craft a premium coffee that serves as a powerful vehicle for raising awareness in the fight against MS.”

About Multiple Sclerosis – The National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Bike MS
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. There is currently no cure for MS.

Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, and it affects women three times more than men. The National MS Society, founded in 1946, funds cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, and provides programs and services to help people affected by MS live their best lives. Bike MS is the largest fundraising cycling series in the world. Each year, nearly 75,000 cyclists and more than 6,000 teams ride together to change the world for people with MS.
