Autodesk, TenLinks Ride Against MS

Charity bike ride to raise money to fight disease

NOVATO, CA and LAKE OSWEGO, OR, Jul 13, 2009 - TenLinks and Autodesk (NASDAQ: ADSK) will participate in a group bicycle ride to raise money to fight multiple sclerosis. The ride will cover as much as 150 miles over two days on August 1-2, and will take place in Oregon, near Autodesk’s Manufacturing Industry Group’s headquarters.

“Such a long ride will not be easy,” said Roopinder Tara, president and CEO of TenLinks who will be joining Team Autodesk at the nearby Autodesk office in Lake Oswego, Oregon. “But our effort will pale against the struggle faced by the victims of MS and of their families and loved ones.”

MS is an incurable disease affecting the central nervous system, afflicting over 400,000 people in the US and an estimated 2.5 million worldwide. Its symptoms vary in severity and type, ranging from fatigue and numbness all the way to paralysis and in rare cases, death. About half of MS sufferers cannot work. Money raised by the ride will help fund research to find a cure.

“Autodesk’s mission is to improve and enrich the lives of those in need by supporting vital charities and community programs like the National Multiple Sclerosis Society,” said Grant Rochelle, director at Autodesk. “This is the third consecutive year that we've formed a team to ride in the Oregon MS Bike Tour, and the second year that Roopinder has joined Team Autodesk. Together, we’re honored to help fund the research advances that are so desperately needed by the thousands living with MS.”

Team Autodesk hopes to raise $15,000 to fight MS, and full time Autodesk employees are eligible to have donations of between $50 and $500 matched by the Autodesk Matching Gifts Program. Those wishing to contribute may do so at the MS150 website.
