BENEFITING: OHIO CYCLEWORKS CHARITIES INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 14, 2016
Ohio CycleWorks Charities is working to raise $40,000 in support of its 2016 Race Across the West efforts, with $25,000 earmarked for a donation to charity. The team has raised nearly $75,000 on behalf of Akron Children's Hospital through its 2012 and 2014 Race Across America efforts. This year, the team members will partner with the LeBron James Family Foundation to support its Wheels for Education program.
Wheels for Education (WFE) is more than a program, it's a commitment. Each year, LeBron and his Foundation select a group of third grade students to be a part of WFE. WFE students begin each year with a two-week technology camp offered by Akron After School (AAS) in partnership with the Foundation.
Throughout the school year, the WFE students receive support, encouragement and incentives; these interventions will continue throughout their journeys to graduation.
