Online PR News – 23-September-2011 – – GA,USA : UroMed, a leading urological medical supply company, is proudly sponsoring hand-cyclist Brian Doughtie as he competes on September 17-18, 2011 in the Bike MS: Cox Atlanta Ride to benefit Multiple Sclerosis research.

“The Cox Atlanta MS ride is one of my favorite annual events,” Doughtie says. “ It’s one of the largest MS rides in the Southeast, with more than 2000 riders. This year is its 25th anniversary. I can’t wait to hit the road with them on September 17 & 18.”

Celebrating 25 years of Bike MS in Georgia, the Bike MS: Cox Atlanta Ride is a two-day ride that benefits the Georgia Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Donations raised through this event benefit the Georgia Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and its mission to end the devastating effects of MS.

In addition to their sponsorship, UroMed is currently featuring a series of articles on their catheter health blog about Hometown Heroes who work to overcome disabilities while inspiring others. Doughtie’s personal experience as an athlete and as a multiple sclerosis event volunteer is part of the Hometown Heroes series.

“The idea for Hometown Heroes was inspired by the thousands of people who participate in our online peer support community on Facebook through our non-profit program, Life After Spinal Cord Injury. As they continually share their own stories and pictures of success in everyday life, we wanted to help spread the good news even further to eliminate stereotypes associated with disabilities and to inspire even more people who may not have yet discovered Life After Spinal Cord Injury,” says UroMed President Craig Stevens.

UroMed is one of the nation's leading providers of disposable catheters, urological and continence care medical supplies. Most of UroMed’s customers experience urological or incontinence issues due to conditions like Spinal Cord Injury, Spina Bifida, Transverse Myelitis or Multiple Sclerosis.

UroMed is honored to support numerous charities nationwide in the communities that they serve. The company focuses its community efforts on three primary areas:
• Condition-related associations that focus on education, awareness and support
• Sports programs for the disabled
• Leadership and motivational programs for disabled youth

Additionally, many of UroMed’s employees volunteer their time and efforts at various community events, as 20% of our customer care associates either has a disability or has a family member with a disabling condition.
