Alcatel-Lucent via Crowdrise
September 09, 2013
Alcatel-Lucent is sponsoring a Corporate team for this year's Gran Fondo, NJ. The team is 35 riders, comprised of current employees, retirees and other cyclist-friends and family who are committed to supporting the very impactful work of The Seeing Eye, and its mission to advance the independence and dignity of blind and visually impaired people through the use of Seeing Eye dogs.
Alcatel Lucent USA has a large employee presence in New Providence, New Jersey and has been a proud corporate partner of The Seeing Eye since 2010 through the Alcatel Lucent Foundation. Alcatel Lucent encourages employee involvement in the community through volunteerism as part of (annual) Global Days of Caring. The Gran Fondo is one of the 2013 opportunities to support Global Days of Caring. The Alcatel Lucent Corporate riders are encouraging morale support as they make the 107 mile Gran Fondo ride! Please consider making a small donation via this page (every Euro/ $$ counts for The Seeing Eye!) and /or, if you live locally to NJ, ‘coming on out’ on Sunday, September 8th to cheer the ALU team on!
Thank you in advance for supporting Alcatel Lucent 4 The Seeing Eye!
