DiPrete Engineering was recently honored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Rhode Island chapter for its efforts to support the organization.

Last month, the firm was presented with a special award for raising more than $22,500 for the society’s 25th anniversary of Bike MS: Ride the Rhode. The annual event is a 150-mile bike ride held each June.

This year, DiPrete Engineering, a long-time participant, assembled a team of 17. The group rode under the team name PT Riders in honor of principal Dennis DiPrete’s sister, Pegi Thibaudeau, who has MS.

DiPrete said the award was a tribute to his firm’s commitment to fighting MS.

“Our goal is to always try and get the best results for our clients, and the same has been true for our teams that participate in Ride the Rhode,” he said. “We know our training and fundraising can help those impacted by this disease get the best support – and we want to try and keep them one step ahead of MS.”

During the last 10 years, the firm has raised more than $200,000 to help fund research projects, education programs and services for those affected by the disease. •
