Christmas is a time for giving. A team of technical sales people got together and wanted to build some bikes for some deserving children.

cisco teamThese good people did an amazing thing – they used their own money to donate the funds for the bikes. They were on a Sales Retreat before the Holidays. The team was from all over the country – Los Angeles, Charlotte, Chicago, New York Dallas, and Austin.

As a break from all the high-level sales planning, they wanted to do something good – build bikes and build their team and give some good children a wonderful experience of their first good bike. Well Done!

Here are the good kids who got new bike shop quality bikes and helmets from the Cisco team.

Bikes for Goodness Sake has done a number of team building events building bikes for good kids, but the Bechtel and Chevron’s Wheatstone project set a new standard. The Wheatstone Team provided impeccable organization and maximum fun. The recipient children were delightful and deserving. Below is a video that says it all.

Special thanks to the event coordinator Avera Hill-Basham and to Judy at  Urban Bicycle Gallery of Houston, Texas and their stellar mechanic Zach and his helper Emily. Events like this need great people to make them happen and these people are first class.

Bechtel has a strong commitment of giving back to the communities. Bechtel offices are in Maryland, Phoenix, Houston, Seattle, Tennessee, Virginia, and San Francisco. They did a great work for good kids.

Give and Let Ride!
