Heat Transfer Warehouse pedaled good will to give back to local schools during a Cyclebar Charity Ride to benefit the Fargo Schools Foundation.
A total of 44 individuals-the entire Fargo team, family and friends, as well as staff members from the company’s Adopt-a-School partner, McKinley Elementary School-participated in the instructor-led cycling event to raise money for kids in need, Heat Transfer Warehouse Marketing Coordinator Brooke Hestdalen tells A&E magazine. “An instructor led us through a 50-minute standard cycling class and it was a great time,” she says. “We were able to raise $1,075 from all the awesome people willing to participate. The money will actually be used to purchase clothes and shoes for the kids that need it at (McKinley Elementary School).”
This was the first time Heat Transfer Warehouse participated in the charity initiative, which not only benefitted the company’s local community, but also promoted several of its core values. “We were looking for a fun way to incorporate a charity event with our healthy living core value and found that Cyclebar offers these charity rides, so we went for it,” Hestdalen explains. “It was also a way for us to incorporate our connection core value as well, as we got to do the ride with all of our team members and staff from our Adopt-a-School, too.”
Heat Transfer Warehouse is involved extensively with various initiatives at McKinley Elementary School as a part of the Adopt-a-School program. Recently, the company donated personalized sweatshirts pressed with the students’ names and the school mascot. The program is one of the company’s exciting ways to give back. “We want to do what we can to help our community,” she notes, “and what better way than to help the kids who are the future of it? It’s a unique way to give back that is rewarding for both the school and our team members.”
