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.
Social Code hosted a remarkable bike build event at the Washington Post in Washington DC.
Rebecca Licu organized the event in downtown Washington DC. The Social Code team gathered from New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Toronto for a business conference, then they capped off the week by building thirteen bikes for local children. The children were all students from a local charter school of inner Washington DC.
The Social Code team built the bikes and made a large card for each child. Bikes for Goodness Sake also provided some team building exercises by Jerry Green.
But the highlight was the children. While taking the team photo, the kids sprang into the room to surprise the team. There were many teary eyes of gratitude. It was heart warming.
Another special thanks to Revolution Cycle for helping with the event. They have partnered with Bikes for Goodness Sake for several events in the DC area. One of the owners of Revolution is Pinky. He was fantastic helping with the build and working with the recipient children. Pinky has a heart for children.
