San Diego Plumbers Participate in Local “Ride for Kids” Fundraising Event
Employees from the Bill Howe Family of Companies ride for a cause
September 29, 2014 San Diego, Calif. –Bill and Tina Howe, owners of well-established San Diego plumbing, HVAC and restoration company, know the importance of giving back to the community and have shared their own “pay-it-forward” spirit with their employees. From volunteering at the local food bank and local fundraising events to participation in organizations that are important individually, the team of San Diego plumbers at Bill Howe is eager to get involved in community outreach.
San Diego Ride for Kids is part of a national series of motorcycle rides benefitting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Ride for Kids began in 1984, a time when there was little hope for those diagnosed with pediatric brain tumors. There was little research, and treatments did not guarantee children would survive to adulthood. Motorcyclists and Ride for Kids have helped to change that realty for PBTF offering family friendly, fun-filled ride events taking place in 37 locations across the country. As of September 2014, Ride for Kids 2014 has raised over $2.5 million for the foundation.
This is the first year that the Bill Howe Family of Companies has sponsored the event. Spearheaded by Chief Technical Officer, Mark Card, a group of five San Diego plumbers joined on Saturday with their motorcycles. Additionally, Mark brought his sidecar and was able to bring one of the kids in attendance along for the ride. “It was exciting to be a part of the San Diego Ride for Kids this year,” said Mark. More than 500 riders attended the San Diego event and raised a total of $13,352.
“We were very proud of all of our team members and the many foundations they want to support,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We have built into our own mission the importance of community outreach and charitable giving, and to see our employees pick up the banner of “giving back” means we are succeeding in reaching our goals.”
