Charity Bike Build – Together We Care

One of your fondest childhood memories is probably the day you received your very first bicycle for your birthday or Christmas, wrapped with a big bow around the handlebars. You probably spent all summer outside, cycling around with your friends, or going on rides through the woods with your family.

But for the many impoverished families throughout America, it can be tough to afford the cost of food and rent, let alone luxuries like toys and bikes. Although bicycling can help children build coordination and self-esteem, and provides a wonderful source of exercise, many kids are forced to go without this cherished childhood pastime.

In this terrific team building event, teams armed with wrenches and enthusiasm race to construct the ultimate human-powered, no-gasoline-needed rocket: children’s bicycles. Meanwhile, other teammates are navigating fun, innovative puzzles and challenges to earn enough “money” for purchasing that last crucial part needed to make their team’s bike the first off the line.

The final bell rings. You wheel your mechanical marvels to the presentation/start line. Everyone is poised to present their bike and accompanying TV commercial when a door at the end of the room bursts open. Suddenly, you see the excited faces of underserved children from your own community! Imagine the delight and surprise that fill the room when everybody learns these kids actually get to take your new bicycles home with them. For most of the children involved, typically ages 8-12, this will be their first bicycle!

This is an extraordinary way to infuse a conference with energy, create a feeling of immense good will and a sense of meaning larger than day-to-day work challenges. We partner with charities such as Boys and Girls Club and Bikes for Tykes. Or we’re happy to partner with a local charity of your choice.

In typical TeamBonding style, we take care of all the logistics, making you look good while making the whole event simple and painless. Remember, keep this one a surprise for the participants – don’t spill the beans! The surprise value of the big finale cannot be overstated.

Testimonial

“Our group had a great time! It was one of the best team events we have held and certainly the most rewarding. Many of the participants have young children, and it inspired them to do their best, knowing that the bikes they were building were going toward such a worthy cause. The TeamBonding team was wonderful to work with and provided a very rewarding and entertaining evening for our group. Thank you for once again providing a top notch event. We look forward to working with you again next year."
