MCPc Bikes for Charity: TeamMCPc Aims for 250,000+ Miles & $100,000 to CharityCleveland Technology Business Backs Team of Nearly 100 Cyclists as They Race for a Cause (May 31, 2012)
CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 05/31/12 -- TeamMCPc, a group of more than 100 cyclists from Cleveland-based MCPc, Inc., aims to raise $100,000 for six charities, as it participates in eight "Bike for Charity" events this summer. MCPc is a national technology products and solutions provider, as well as lead sponsor of the TeamMCPc cycling team.
TeamMCPc launched in 2011. In its inaugural year, it raised $44,000 for charity. For 2012, the team hopes to raise more than $100,000.
Since its start, the cycling team has expanded outside its "work family" to include customers, partners and families of employees. Its basic aim is simple: raise awareness, donations, and the team's collective heart-rates to support six designated charities, including:
- Breast Cancer Research (Ride Cincinnati)
- Roswell Park Center Institute in Buffalo (Ride for Roswell)
- United Way (Ride United)
- American Diabetes Association (Tour de Cure in Chicago, Pittsburgh and Cleveland)
- Cancer Research and Hope Lodges (Pan Ohio Hope)
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Research (Pedal to the Point)
TeamMCPc is actively looking for organizations to sponsor the team -- and notes that 100 percent of funds raised will go directly to designated charities. Current 2012 TeamMCPc sponsors include: MCPc, Inc., Dell, Wyse, Citrix, Cisco, NetApp, Tech Data and Ohio CycleWorks & Indoor Cycling.
