Energi Kicks off 6th Annual ICycle Spinning Event for HomeStart, Inc.
PEABODY, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Employees from Energi,
a leading developer and underwriter of energy insurance products, today
participated in the ICycle
2013 Fundraiser, a series of outdoor stationary cycle classes for
charity held at International Place in Boston. Leading the first hourly
session, Energi employees rode from 6:30 to 7:30 am fundraising for HomeStart,
Inc. a non-profit dedicated to ending and preventing homelessness in
Prior to the ride, the Energi team presented a corporate contribution to
HomeStart, in addition to fundraising approximately $6,000 for their
ride. Most employees surpassed the $250 minimum, taking into
consideration that $1,030 enables HomeStart to move an enire family out
of a shelter and into a permanent home.
"I'm a frequent spinner, though ICycle was much more than just a regular
class. Our employee network went the extra mile and was tenacious in
their fundraising efforts as a result of the passion that they have for
helping HomeStart reduce homelessness in Boston. This is an event and
organization that Energi will continue to support in the future." Ed
Scott, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Industry Relations and
participant in the Annual ICycle spinning event.
Thirteen Peabody-based Energi employees and strategic partners from
Gravoc Associates and Aon Benfield participated in the fundraiser. The
session was led by Annie Brown, Energi Strategic Planning Manager, and
featured a celebrity guest appearance from Elizabeth Hopkins of Fox 25.
Team members from Gravoc Associates also assisted Energi in the design
of special company-branded t-shirts.
"We are very grateful to have Energi kick off ICycle," says Linda
Wood-Boyle, Executive Director of HomeStart. "They understand its
very important meaning-that one or two hours in the cold cannot compare
to living without a home. The ICycle event is just one way we can
simulate a fraction of the many challenges those struggling with
homelessness must face. We're lucky to have friends like them."
Bikes for ICycle 2013 were provided by Fitness International. Corporate
teams included Income Research & Management, Fidelity, Morgan Stanley
Wealth Management, ICON Architecture, Eastern Bank and UBS.
