3 GUYS FROM BROOKLYN CONTINUES THE FIGHT AGAINST MS
COVID-19 has changed so much for so many, including Three Guys From Brooklyn. We went from being a neighborhood store to an essential business. We happily and proudly supported our community through the pandemic and will continue to do so.
While so much has changed, some things remain the same. People still continue to be diagnosed, live with and suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (M.S) of which there is no cure. Every year, Three Guys From Brooklyn raises funds for M.S. in honor of our founder Philip C. Penta who passed in 2018 after a 20 year fight with the disease. Every year, Three Guys along with friends and family participate in a 50-100 mile bike ride hosted by BikeMS. Unfortunately, the bike ride this year has been cancelled but BikeMS is working super hard to make a high-quality virtual event with the same energy as the ride.
2020 has created many hardships for our community and most will find it hard to donate. That said, we cannot give up hope that one day there will be a cure. As a result, we have created a modest fundraising goal. Anything that you can spare goes directly to M.S. research to find a cure.
Ask small for big results!
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, disabling disease that affects the nervous system and disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. It afflicts over 2.3 million people worldwide and affects people of all backgrounds, and currently, there is no known cure. On August 12th, 2018, Philip Penta, Sr. – an original founder of Three Guys, and the father of Three Guys’ Managing Partner Phil Penta – was lost to the world due to MS, after a courageous 20-year fight.
Here at Three Guys, we stand in support of and solidarity with everyone around the world who’s affected, either directly or through loved ones, by multiple sclerosis. This is a fight we’ll eventually win.
