Several members of the EatStreet team recently participated in the Bike for the Boys & Girls Club. After CEO Matt Howard had a rewarding experience last year, he brought an entire posse along this year to support Madison’s youth. Eleven employees participated in the ride at both the 8 and 25 miles distances. EatStreeters raised over $2,000 for an important cause and had a great time.
“The ride toured Madison’s best lake views and ended at Edgewood College, where we were greeted with live music, a grilled lunch, and Culver’s custard. It was a great team-building event for us that we will definitely be repeating in upcoming years. The event also marked a personal milestone for me. I was in a bad bike accident back in April and had not been on a bike since. A charity bike ride with my friends and coworkers was the impetus I needed to conquer my fears.”
-Emily Orner, Director of Team Development & Recruitment
“The bike ride was a great time. I really enjoyed biking around and being able to see parts of Madison that I had never seen before. This was the first charity event I had done in awhile, but it won’t be my last. It’s such a rewarding feeling giving back to your community and having a fun time doing it. I’ll definitely do it again next year!”
-Jack Wilson, Executive Account Manager
