BBVA Compass - Global Wealth for the Pursuit

BENEFITING: THE CENTER FOUNDATION

EVENT: Pursuit for those with disABILITIES

EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2016

Karen Dixon

THE STORY:

Pursuit is a capital campaign with a two-tiered mission:  First, to raise $11million for Houston's own The Center and second, to advance the interest of all individuals with disABILITIES across the country.  Across the United State, there are currently 10 million individuals that have intellectual anddevelopmental disabilites.  Pursuit's mission is to bring awareness to this underserved population by bicycling 3,500 miles across the United States this summer.

Beginning on June 6, 2016, my friend, David Baldwin, will depart from Astoria, Oregon and will ride 3,500 miles, reaching Rehoboth Beach, Maryland on August 3rd.  David will be accompanied by a small support crew and many who have raised money in order to ride along with him. Along the route, the Pursuit Team will visit leading organizations, universities and reseach facilities to garner best practices for serving individuals with disABILITES.  

I am proud to say that BBVA Compass is the Presenting Sponsor for this campaign donating $250,000 to the Center toward its goal.  As part of its #livebright campaign BBVA is putting its money where it's mouth is.   Our friends with disABILITIES often do not ask for themselves so it is up to us to take care of them.  Please consider supporting this worthy cause if not for the Center, for other organizations serving this growing population.
