Building Bikes for Kids

You are here

June 20, 2013

At the MAXIMUS Annual Project Managers Conference in June, hundreds of employees came together for skills development and networking. However, for many attendees, the highlight of the conference was the opportunity to give back to those who are less fortunate through the “Bikes for Kids” teambuilding challenge.

Participants of the challenge were split into teams and given a box of bike parts. In little over an hour, our employees created 25 child-sized bicycles while learning how to work together as a team! The MAXIMUS Foundation coordinated delivery of these bikes to Alternative House, a local organization in Virginia that serves women and children who need a safe refuge from abusive situations. Employees reported that they enjoyed the friendly competition and the chance to produce something that will be treasured by local children in need.
