Fudds Burgers For Cyclists To Help Raise Funds For National Multiple Sclerosis Society

HOUSTON, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fuddruckers (NYSE: LUB), the Texas-born home of the World's Greatest Hamburgers, is riding out multiple sclerosis with Lockton Companies, LLC, the world's largest, privately owned, independent insurance broker, for the 2011 BP MS 150 charity bike ride April 16-17 throughout the Texas Hill Country. The 150-mile journey spans the distance between Houston and Austin, and raises money for research and funding for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Lone Star Chapter.

Lockton Companies, LLC has participated in the BP MS 150 for four years, and this marks its second teamed up with Fuddruckers, which is supporting the company's Houston team by serving the 125-member crew freshly grilled burgers at the ride's halfway point in La Grange, Texas. Fuddruckers also held a benefit night for the Lockton Cycling team, donating twenty percent of its sales of the evening to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

This year's race will bring together more than 12,000 bike riders from across the country. The BP MS 150 is the largest fundraising bike ride in North America and raised more than $17 million for the disease in 2010.
