WHCI and Moen Team Raises Over $700
On Saturday, April 20, 2013, six WHCI employees & four representatives from Moen participated in a charity bike race called Cycle for Sight, and in one day raised over $700 for two worthy causes.
Cycle for Sight has three scenic 50, 25, and 15 mile courses, that wind among the hills and vineyards of the world famous Napa Valley. The ride started and finished at Justin Siena High School, where the Cycle for Sight Wine and Music Festival took place at the end of the race.
The proceeds from the race will go to two local organizations, Enchanted Hills Camp For The Blind & Visually Impaired and The California Veterans “Pathway Home Project.” The fundraising goal for the event was to raise $100,000.
The Pathway Home Program
This “privately funded” rehabilitation and transition center is showing amazing results in saving the lives of our returning veterans and helping them transition to productive lives. We have helped over 300 veterans who are all still alive and trying to regain the lives they left behind in order to serve our country.
Enchanted Hills Camp For The Blind & Visually Impaired
This is the only camp of its kind in the western United States and provides a once a year opportunity for children, adults, and veterans to experience the wonders of nature and the world that most of us see everyday. This 300 acre camp is located in the western hills of Napa Valley, along the 50 mile cycle route and offers hiking trails, horse back riding, fishing, swimming, and a variety of other activities for the blind and visually impaired. The camp provides the opportunity for campers to interact and bond with others, to gain self esteem and to learn skills and techniques that will help them live a much fuller and rewarding life. The funds we raised will guarantee that people of any means will have the opportunity to experience this magical place every year.
