Best wishes for the New year to all of our teammates and their families. 2018 was our 10th year as an organized team and we celebrated all year with tons of events. This past year we held seminars with Rothman, hosted the Welcome Back Ride, started our No Excuse ride for beginners, staged our first Grill and Chill event and so many other great happenings.
We continued our charity fundraising and eclipsed several milestones too. Again we were one of the top ten fundrasing teams in the Cancer Bridge to the Beach Ride. Plus we partnered with the Foster 100, and doubled the number of riders in the event. Team Evesham represented more than 20% of the total riders in this ride for veterans.
This year also saw numerous rides being cancelled. 2018 was the wettest year ever in New Jersey with over 64 inches of rain in New Jersey. According to our colleague: Storm Chaser Sandy, this is 20 inches above a normal year.
When 8 people joined together to form the team in 2008 no one envisioned that we would have more than 400 members and that we would contribute more than $1.7 million to charities.
Come help us celebrate so many great things at the upcoming after holiday party on Friday, January 11. Sign up here to attend and remember this is a BYOB event so feel free to bring your favorite adult drinks.
At Team Evesham we are always trying to make our group even better. On behalf of all of our teammates we thank Kevin Comber, Melissa Harris, and Dave Bennis for their many years of service on our Board of Directors. We are also welcoming 4 new Board Members for 2019. They are:
Lastly we have even more items in store for 2019 so keep watching for all of the announcements.
