Houston, TX (US) - Earlier this year, our team announced our sponsorship of cyclist Phil Gaimon and the support of his fundraising efforts for the No Kid Hungry and Chefs Cycle organizations. These groups seek to provide families facing hunger with the means and resources they need, including direct access to food, proper education and skills-building for nutrition, lessons on affordable cooking, and more.
This past weekend Gaimon joined Integrated's Principal Consultant Jason Humber, the Bicycle Speed Shop, and members of the local cycling community for a fun ride around Houston. The festivities commenced with a quick family ride around the Heights area, followed by a longer ride from the Texas Medical Center to Bellaire and back to the shop. Gaimon stuck around for a discussion with local cyclists, sparking interest in the community and increasing awareness of the charity mission behind his year-long trek around the country.
Thank you to Bicycle Speed Shop for hosting this event, and we are excited to report that our contribution to Gaimon's fundraising has helped to push him closer to his goal!
Are you interested in helping us support this cause and bring Phil to the finish line? Discover more in this announcement as well as on Gaimon's Chefs Cycle profile. Read a full write-up on this event at the Houston Chronicle.
