Those of our team who went on the bike trip came into the office this morning feeling a little tired, but also empowered. And that’s because the trip was such a huge success!
Taking into consideration everyone’s physically logged miles, as well as the matching contributions by non-bikers acting as sponsors, we achieved a combined total of 1,000 miles!! We’re so excited, because that translates to a $1,000 donation we’ll be making to Room to Read.
We are overjoyed to be making such a wonderful contribution to their cause. It’s truly amazing to know that our efforts will directly influence young people in developing countries and help to improve their education. We are so proud of our team :)
It was definitely a challenge, and each mile well-earned, but we certainly managed to have a blast too! Along the way, we stopped through a number of great cities, including San Simeon, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, and of course ending our journey in the beautiful Santa Barbara.
Almost all of the rest of our team made it down to SB for the weekend - either by car or plane - to join in on the celebration of the bikers’ accomplishment. It was an overall stellar string of days, a great team-bonding experience, and an admirable goal we can now say we achieved. Congrats to everyone involved!!
