Wind in your hair, your parent’s hand supporting your back while guiding you along, an ear-to-ear grin spread wide across your face…
Everyone who has experienced it will certainly remember their first bike ride.
If not your first successful ride, then you at least remember that first terrifying fall into the bushes.
Every child deserves the chance to experience their first bike ride. In fact, every child deserves to stand and recite this monumental speech afterwards:
“I know you can believe in yourself”
However, not every family can afford this childhood rite of passage. Luckily, that’s where you and your team come in.
Charity Team Building Activities That Work
During one of our most popular charity team building activities, your teams race to be the first to construct a sturdy and reliable bicycle that will ultimately be donated to an eagerly awaiting group of deserving children.
From breaks to spokes and everything in between, your team is in charge of creating a strategy to complete all assembly responsibilities.
After all of the parts are diligently put together, members from each team test-ride the bikes through obstacles as they race to be the first ones to cross the finish line with a safe and secure bike.
From this event teams are able to benefit from:
- A hands-on activity requiring strategy and collaboration
- The opportunity to work together and form stronger relationships
- A little friendly competition to heighten energy and spirits
- And most importantly, the chance to put a smile on a kid’s face
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!

Throughout history many leaders have inspired us to change the world from Gandhi to Alexander the Great. These particular leaders didn’t leave a mark by just hanging out. They led by taking action and inspiring people to follow them.
I’m Joyce Ngo – public relations enthusiast, student, and currently TeamBonding marketing intern. This summer as part of my internship I will be focusing on social media and bringing the experience of the events and programs we do to the mass public from my perspective. You’ll get a behind the scenes view of what happens before the event and the preparation that goes into it. I’ll be posting blog posts about my observations and experience at each event. Basically, you’ll get to see what Joyce the Intern sees, no fluff. This time I went to a Team Teddy Rescue Bear.
