Webdam Gives Back to Silicon Valley

by Melissa Kelly in Events, Webdam Updates

This year, Webdam team members were thrilled to participate in the 21st annual Bike 4 Breath event, hosted by Breathe California – a non-profit organization committed to reduce the impact of lung disease through prevention, education, advocacy and patient services. The organization has put many signature programs in place to help the fight against critical lung and health issues like asthma, tobacco use, emphysema, lung cancer, and more.

Webdam is happy to be an active supporter of Breathe California and participate in noble events like Bike 4 Breath. In preparation for the event, employees took part in passionate fundraising efforts and Webdam was happy to match their contributions — raising thousands of dollars for Breathe California. In fact, two employees were recognized for being Top 5 Fundraisers.

Bike 4 Breath was an exhilarating 50 mile bike ride. Yes, I said 50 miles! Team members endured tough training that prepared them for the event and after 6 hours and 4 annoying flat tires they crossed the finish line together. Completing the ride and being top fundraisers weren’t the only accomplishments. After a rough 50 miles, Webdam was ecstatic to be awarded the most spirited team award! The team was noted for bringing great energy, positivity, and humor to the race – especially with Beavers attached to their helmets and bikes.

All in all, it was great to be part of Bike 4 Breath this year. Team members are already gearing up for next year’s ride and other opportunities to give back to the community.

Hope to see you on the next DAM ride!
