The Sanders Truck Lines 2 bike relay for the benefit of the Miracle League – The Troy Messenger
Talking is cheap, but the miles are difficult.
This is how it goes among the contestants in the Wiley Sanders Truck Lines-sponsored Miracle League of Troy Two-Bike Relay Fundraiser.
The goal of the Miracle League of Troy fundraiser is $ 20,000, ”said Kelly Sanders, fundraiser organizer. “Sanders Truck Lines will donate up to $ 10,000 in the hopes that the Troy Cable 52 Two-Bike TV Relay will match or better that amount with their fundraising efforts. “
Sanders said the motivation for the fundraiser was, and is, to support the employees of Wiley Sanders Truck Lines who have children who benefit from the Miracle League and the many other children who have the opportunity to play baseball, to be part of a team and have fun.
“We were not aware of the number of Wiley Sanders Truck Lines employees who have children or children of relatives or friends who benefit from the Miracle League,” Sanders said. “Wiley Sanders Truck Lines wanted to do something to support the Miracle League, these children and their families. “
Ideas were pitched for a fundraiser and the one that prevailed was a two-bike relay, “boys versus girls,” Sanders said with a laugh.
Two teams were quickly formed. The boys, Frankie Sarris, Jeffrey Bennett and Kevin Baker, and the girls, Kelly Sanders, Amanda Floyd and Kristi Kitchens, prepare for the relay: Time 8 am; the date, Monday June 28; the place, Troy Cable Channel 52.
The relay will be a one hour timed event. Each rider will ride 20 minutes; each intending to cover more kilometers than their individual competitor and “bent over and determined” to win right to harass / brag for his team.
The team with the most kilometers traveled will be the winner. The runner with the fewest kilometers covered will receive a special prize… a pie in the face.
The relay will be televised live on Troy Cable 52.
