Waltham-Based Delaware Life Teambuilding Experience Results in Bike Donations to Boys & Girls Club of Waltham

WALTHAM, Mass., June 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —¬†The joy of being a kid and being presented with your first bicycle is unmatched. New opportunities appear before you as you gain a new level of independence. Yet many children are unable to experience that joy. A group of employees from Delaware Life recently took part in a teambuilding experience to help change that reality for a group of children associated with the Boys & Girls Club of Waltham. The result of their efforts was a generous donation of 10 brand new bicycles, locks & helmets to the deserving children in the local community. The event took place on June 13, 2018 at the Delaware Life offices in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Delaware Life selected a “Bike Build for Charity” program facilitated by Impact 4 Good (impact4good.com), a company that focuses on teambuilding programs that give back to communities. Working in 10 groups, the attendees spent the morning assembling the children’s bikes along with writing and drawing a special “message of encouragement” to accompany each bike and child!

Talina Goldsbury, Resource Development Manager at the Boys & Girls Club of Waltham, graciously thanked the group in person at the event for their time and effort in building and donating 10 brand new bikes to some very deserving children. After the event, she said, “The bikes, helmets and locks have gone to ten wonderful and deserving young people. The recipients were selected because their lives would not have the opportunity to get one. You’ve given them a mode of transportation, a way to stay active, and the sheer joy of being outside riding with friends.”
