Barrelling Through Beryl, Team Little Guy Cycles on!

May 31, 2012

Team Little Guy’s John Radebaugh was positively giddy at the end of a wet and windy day of riding Wednesday. Above is a short video clip of John playing firefighter on a vintage truck at the fire station in Elizabethtown.

The fun and games were earned by the end of the day. The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl swept into SE NC late Tuesday evening and made for a soggy and somewhat breezy ride on Wednesday as the team left Wilmington. The team plodded north, reaching Elizabethtown later in the afternoon.

The team is stopping off in Dunn Thursday evening after the longest leg of the NC tour (83 miles). After a night of rest, the team will get a hearty breakfast and a warm send-off from the staff of State Employees’ CU (Tilghman Drive branch).

Friday, the team heads to Raleigh … then rides into Durham for the Co-op-A-Fair event at Diamond View Park from 11 am to 3 pm. The team would very much appreciate seeing you at this event! (They tentatively should be riding in late in the morning or around Noon.)

The ride has given the team an opportunity to meet with some terrific folks along the way, and more good times are still to come! The ride has also called attention to the Rooftop Garden project that credit unions in North & South Carolina are funding through the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation. Your support of this wonderful project is encouraged!

Team Little Guy Rides Again!

After a long hiatus, Team Little Guy is prepping to clip in and ride once again! The team will be winding their way through eastern NC from May 29 – June 3 in order to raise funds for the Levine Children’s Hospital Rooftop Garden Renovation project!

In addition to the Levine project, credit unions in North and South Carolina are partnering together to renovate the lobby of the Children’s Hospital in Greenville, SC. Your gifts to help support these two organizations will bring hope and inspiration to patients and families in the years to come.

The ride starts in the Brunswick County town of Shallotte and winds its way north and gradually west to the Virginia border town of Clarksville. That’s 366 miles in six days!

The NC portion of the ride is part of the larder 2012 Community Tour, which extends from Miami, Florida to Portland, Maine from mid May to early July. During the NC stretch of the ride, the team will participate in the Co-op-A-Fair in Durham on June 2.

Right now, the team needs credit unions to step up and commit corporate donations to the ride. In addition, we encourage credit unions to raise funds in branches through the summer. To help, the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation is coordinating a Children’s Miracle Network paper balloon sale.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact John McGrail (john@carolinasfoundation.org) at the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation! You may also view the sponsor form for more details.

In the meantime, we’ll have much more coming soon about this exciting event!
