2015 GOOD WHEELS Giving Challenge

Pedal for a Purpose on GOOD WHEELS! gwlogo1

We need your help with this year’s GIVING CHALLENGE, September 1 – 2, 2015

Join us in raising awareness of Goodwill Manasota’s mission: Changing Lives through the Power of Work and Meals on Wheels Plus’ mission: to assist individuals who live independently by providing nutrition and caring supportive services.

We are asking our dearest and best friends of Goodwill Manasota and Meals on Wheels Plus to bring the “GOOD WHEELS” challenge into your company.  Each company that signs up will be given a mobile stationary bike to place in your lobby (or available space to also display information about Goodwill Manasota and Meals on Wheels Plus) for up to 3 days.  We ask that the company encourages employees to sign-up and peddle for a purpose while helping to raise money for the charities.

Employees can make a donation of $5, $10, $25 (or more) for each mile they ride.

The company that signs on will receive T-shirts for employees, a prize for the employee who raises the most money, and also be praised through social media and a news release talking about how your company is fabulous in showing good corporate social responsibility!

If you are interested, please contact us today at 941.355.2721 and make sure to check out our Facebook page for photos and videos, help us thank our partners!
