(Aurora COLO USA) – Next week, Graebel Relocation will sponsor the Ride430 Challenge, a non-profit cycling event, hosted by the Free Wheel Foundation, that helps give America’s injured military service people and their families hope and assistance as they travel the road to recovery. Cyclists will begin the Ride430 Challenge in Phoenix, Arizona on October 14 and in four days, travel up to 100 miles per day, will ride over 16,000 feet of vertical climbing and finish the course in Tempe, Arizona. This is the eighth year of the Ride430 Challenge and in the last seven years, riders have raised over 1.8 million dollars.
According to the Free Wheel Foundation’s website, in addition to training and completing the ride, participants must fundraise, and on an average raise $6,600 for the cause. Money raised by the Ride430 Challenge supplements military assistance and bridges gaps to help injured service people and families who lost loved ones recover. The funding helps provide everything from financial assistance, scholarships and adaptive sports equipment for injured heroes to camps for kids who’ve lost a parent in combat.
For decades, the Graebel organization has actively supported philanthropic endeavors, sponsored charitable events, and has encouraged volunteerism. In 2008, the Graebel organization launched a companywide Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative that is shaped by the United Nations’ model to protect people (human capital), planet (natural capital) and profits (economic environment).
