Hinsdale, IL – July 18, 2009
Syscon, Inc. of Hinsdale completed its fourth annual 200 mile bike ride. The ride – known as the “Syscon Double-Century (Almost)” – was from Elmhurst to Utica, IL on Saturday, June 27th returning to Elmhurst on the 28th. The total distance is 210 miles, but it is referred to as an “Almost” Double-Century because the 200 miles is split over two days rather than one. This year, there were 8 riders that participated.
The ride was the concept of Larry Wendt, president of Syscon. “The purpose of the ride is to promote balance and health in our busy lives as well as generate some much needed funding for a good organization. Daybreak is a cause the really resonates with many of our clients. The idea of breaking free of welfare and becoming self-sufficient is appealing and natural to the men and women that take risks every day running a business.” said Wendt.
The bike ride has provided fund raising for Daybreak of Elmhurst for the last three years. Daybreak is an organization that provides transitional housing, support, and mentoring to families wishing to become independent of welfare. In 2008, the Syscon ride raised over $5,000 for Daybreak.
