Philanthropy Bike Build with Mercedes-Benz

On Thursday, December 17th, Garf, Matt, and Katie headed up to Amelia Island to spend the day at the Ritz-Carlton with the Mercedes-Benz sales team for their holiday team-building retreat.

We helped them plan a philanthropic bike build for the kids over at Hubbard House, which provides support services for victims of domestic violence and their families. We loved their idea to help kids and teens who could use a spot of sunshine over the holidays.

Split into competing teams, the folks from Mercedes-Benz raced to answer company trivia questions to earn the tools necessary to build two bikes apiece, pass a safety inspection, and speed around an improvised racecourse on the beautiful Ritz-Carlton lawn. In all, the retreat attendees built twelve Evo bicycles. The bikes, plus accompanying helmets, are headed to Hubbard House, for moms to gift to their kids, from preschool-age to high-schoolers.

Thank you, Mercedes-Benz, for sharing your holiday spirit with us and with Jacksonville’s future bike-riders!
