Arch-Con, Midway & Gensler Come Together To Help Raise Millions For Charity
A team of cyclists from Houston and around the US will embark upon a 3,500-mile ride from coast to coast to raise money and awareness for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The campaign, known as PURSUIT, will raise $11M for The Center, a nonprofit that has been serving Houston for more than six decades.
Soon, organizers will unveil Mission Control, a repurposed high-tech activity room at The Center in Houston, where the public will be able to track the cyclists' progress, ride along on stationary bikes and get help sponsoring their own organized rides.
David Baldwin, an energy executive who is leading PURSUIT, emphasized that it's about much more than a bike ride. “This is a journey in every sense of the word,” he said. “3,500 miles is a long trek, but it’s nothing compared to the challenges that this population faces every day.”
