WILL TO WHEEL
Pedal to the medal . . . the gold medal, that is! Bike builds for charity are one of the most popular team building events. As teams race toward the finish line, in an attempt to win the gold medals, camaraderie, compassion, and competition are all in full swing.
Making a positive difference in the world is something we all want to achieve. Armed with screwdrivers, wrenches, and team spirit, you will discover the remarkable joy you can bring to a deserving child.
After teams are formed, and the “game frame of mind" is established through a fun ice-breaking activity, the competition begins. Using iPads®, which host our proprietary game app, BridgeTheApp™, teams earn points by completing a variety of physical and mental challenges. As various benchmarks are met, the tools and supplies needed to assemble the bikes and win the gold medals are earned. A distribution of talents is essential, as teams race to beat the clock. Those who are mechanically inclined will likely focus on the bike construction. Those who are more artistically inclined often find themselves creating homemade banners to attach to the bikes. And those with a dramatic flare tend to lead the team in its marketing campaign, to be performed live toward the end of the program.
The event’s pinnacle occurs when a representative from a local charity (usually a local chapter of the Boys & Girls Club or military families) receives your kind donation on behalf of its members. When possible, a surprise visit from children, accepting their very own bikes, startles and further inspires your group, while tugging at your heartstrings.
To promote safety and well being, each child also receives a helmet and lock.
As with all BridgeTheApp™-powered events, shortly after its conclusion, your inbox will contain a link to a web page where all of the photos and videos, captured by your participants, will be available for viewing and download.
To ensure an outstanding experience, aspects of this program may be modified to maximize the benefits for your group size, makeup, available time, and other variables.
