Team Harper’s cycling team participated in the 10th Annual Wheels for Meals Charity Ride event on April 30th. This is the tenth year in a row that the ‘Harper Family’ joined in this event to raise support for Meals on Wheels of Greenville County.
This is a major fundraising effort for this excellent organization. Meals on Wheels serves approximately 3,800 clients every year. The 10th Annual Wheels for Meals Charity Ride raised over $129,500 to benefit their home-bound neighbors here in Greenville County. The Harper Corporation had nineteen cyclists participate in this important event, along with three rest stop volunteers. Five of these riders were Harper employees, including our Chairman, Doug Harper. It is a tribute to the strong relationships we have built over the years that the other fourteen riders were not employees, but were friends whom we work with and work for!
Team Harper raised $10,964 in the 2016 event. In the past ten years in this event, Team Harper has raised $111,319 for Meals on Wheels!
In other words, the dedication and hard work of the many participants will allow Meals on Wheels of Greenville to deliver over 28,000 hot meals and personal visits to our community!
Many thanks to those who cycled, donated to support those riders, and volunteered to feed and water cyclists at the rest stops, for your hard work and generosity.
