<p>OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Corporate Network Brokerage Services Inc. and Leawood, Kansas-based United Methodist Church of the Resurrection are co-sponsors of the largest team, Team COR, in the 2002 Kansas City MS150. Scheduled for Sept 7-8, the event is a two-day, 150-mile bike ride to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. CNBS President and Team COR Captain Brian Hague says with 60 riders so far he expects the team to raise over $30,000 to fight MS. Last year Team COR won the "Rookie of the Year" award for raising over $11,500, which is the most funds of any first-year team. The team, which includes four CNBS employees, will ride 100 miles the first day and 50 the second. The Kansas City event, sponsored by the Mid-America Chapter of the National MS Society, attracts over 2,000 cyclists each year. Funds raised are devoted to research, programs to assist individuals with MS and their families, and public and professional education. Approximately a third of a million Americans are afflicted with MS, and every week about 200 people are diagnosed with the disease.</p>
