The Scootworks Spring
BikeFest '06 is supporting the American Cancer Society
"Relay For Life". This event has been growing every year, and this
year's event will be no exception. ALL proceeds from this event
will be donated to this great cause!
A little history... Amy, our shipping manager, is heavily involved in
Relay for Life. Her team (Walking with Wings) worked at the Scootworks
Spring Open House in 2005. All of the funds raised at that event went to Relay for Life. There
were people everywhere! The bike show and charity ride was a big hit. There were silent auctions,
food sales, raffles of all sorts, and thousands of $$ of prizes given away to visitors. Additionally,
donations were taken via our telephone sales and retail sales teams at the store.
offered free shipping to anyone who had an order under $200 and wanted to make up the difference by
pledging donations to Relay for Life. The 'Walking with Wings' team raised
$11,206, the Eastern Wake Relay (the 'Walking with Wings' team is a subset of) raised 113,760. This brought the total raised
in Wake County up to $767.637. The Scootworks Spring Open House fundraiser was the single
largest Relay for Life fundraiser in Wake County, and won the Relay for
Life Trophy for 2005 for the "Walking with Wings" team!
This will be
a great time to bring the family out and join in the festivities
and support a great cause in helping with the fight against
cancer. "Relay for Life" team members will be here,
handing out information packets and brochures. Click HERE to
