WJW Rides for the Kids!
WJW recently sponsored a Water Stop on ARCO/Murray’s annual Bike Ride for the Kids.
The ride encourages young individuals to pursue education and career opportunities in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, and specifically, the funds raised support FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology) Lego teams where students design, build, and program a LEGO MINDSTORMS robot to perform autonomous missions on an obstacle course.
Todd rode the first 40 mile leg with over 100 bikers riding from Chicago to South Bend in support of this notable cause, and Michelle volunteered at the first Water Stop in Michiana Shores, Indiana to keep the bikers hydrated, fed, patched up (after what turned out to be a wet & slippery early morning ride), and in good spirits for the remainder of their journey. It was an exciting and worthwhile day in support of the kids!
