Earlier this month, Micron’s East Kilbride and Manchester sites went bicycle-to-bicycle in a friendly United Kingdom competition to raise money for local charities. Using the 237-mile distance between the offices as the benchmark, a team from each location spent hours on stationary bike seats competing to cross the finish line first.
When the pedals stopped, the Manchester team won with a pace-setting time of two hours and 38 minutes. The East Kilbride team crossed the finish line in a respectable time of three hours and 25 minutes. Ultimately, the real winners were the charitable organizations selected by each team. The East Kilbride facility raised £251.00 for a variety of charities nominated by team members there while the Manchester cycling team raised £130.00 for St. Anne’s hospice, a locally-based facility.
We applaud our team members at both the East Kilbride and Manchester sites for their efforts, on the bicycle and off, and for their creativity in finding new ways to improve the quality of life in the communities where they work and live.
