Team BKG participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s 13th Annual Race to Any Place held on February 23, 2013 in the plaza of the US Steel Tower.
BKG’s annual participation in the Race to Any Place is a highly anticipated event in the office because of the excitement of the race day and the opportunity to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s fundraising efforts.
For the 9th year in a row, BKG lined up a team of energetic bikers (made up of current BKG employees, BKG alumni, and friends) to take 15 minute shifts on the stationary bikes during the 6 hour race. During the race, Team BKG cheered each other on as each person took their shift.
The hard work was well worth it. Team BKG rode a total of 116 miles, surpassing previous years’ totals. Each biker on Team BKG also met their individual mileage goals. With such sterling efforts, the bar has been set for next year’s race, and Team BKG cannot wait to participate in this event again!
