CYCLE 4 LA's BEST raises over $111,000!
The 6th annual CYCLE 4 LA’s BEST fundraising event took place over the weekend at Esperanza Elementary on April 26th, 2015. The Sunday fundraiser, sponsored by Wendy's of LA, was a HUGE success, as we surpassed our goal of $111,000 thanks to the tireless efforts of more than 100 dedicated LA’s BEST supporters who cycled to raise money for the organization.
Led by the Cycle Committee and our BEST Friends Board, CYCLE 4 LA’s BEST teams pedaled for 50 minutes in 90-degree heat as funds from their supporters continued to roll in throughout the day, and by Monday, the event raised $111,203 for LA’s BEST After School Program!
Thirty teams participated in Cycle 4 LA’s BEST, and in the end, the Pandas on Pedals, led by team Captain and BEST Friends board member Michael Lynn, raised the most funds—pulling in over $21,000 and winning a pair of round-trip airline tickets donated by United Airlines.
When teams weren't pedaling, the participants enjoyed a reception sponsored by a variety of companies, including BUICED, Just Chill, Clif Bar, Simply Salad, Invigorade, WTRMLN WTR, Le Bon Garcon, and Aquahydrate. LA’s BEST students also were in attendance and joined in the fun, cheering on the cyclists and participating in fun physical activities led by BEST Fit, the nutrition and physical fitness program of LA’s BEST.
In between cycling, participants, supporters and kids enjoyed music from our very own DJ AmRo and even had the chance to strike a pose at the step and repeat!
