Colliers International | Pittsburgh Pedals Together in Support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Race to Anyplace 2013
In the spirit of community, Colliers International | Pittsburgh teamed up to raise funds for the 13th Annual Race to Anyplace stationary bike race to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Western PA and WV.
Last year, over 80 teams from local businesses, health clubs, and the community raised more than $100,000 to fuel the Society’s mission: to cure blood cancers – leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and Hodgkin’s disease, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. This year, the 13th Annual Race To Anyplace raised more than $120,000 at the event held Saturday February 23, 2013 at the U.S. Steel Tower in downtown Pittsburgh.
Michelle Stewart, Office & Retail Brokerage Specialist at Colliers International | Pittsburgh, lead the Colliers International | Pittsburgh team in the six-hour stationary bike race to generate awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Team members rode continuously from 8 am until 2 pm, in shifts of 15-30 minutes each, pedaling towards a cure for blood cancers. As team leader, Michelle recruited team members to participate or make donations. Collectively, the team logged approximately 162 miles and was able to raise approximately $600 to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Western PA and WV.
“It was an exciting event that enabled us to work together as a team for an important cause,” said Michelle Stewart. “I’m very proud of the Colliers International | Pittsburgh Race to Anyplace cycling team for the hard work they put in to log miles, and their enthusiasm and support for one another. The camaraderie and positive energy we generated helped drive our momentum to continue to pedal as a team throughout the six hour event.”
