Videos: FUNDED - Cynthia's Furnace
Throughout the fall, Team NeighborLink athletes participate in the cycling discipline called, "cyclocross," which has them racing their bikes in all kinds of conditions, including cold and wet mud. One of Team NeighborLink's goals is to raise money to help neighbors in need who cannot afford to make repairs to their homes, including furnace replacements.
Due to the sometimes cold nature of the cyclocross season, our athletes really connect to the idea that some of our neighbors are battling cold homes and it motivates them to focus our fundraising on replacing furnaces. Easy connecting for many.
The 2018 season brought in enough donations to replace several furnaces, including this one for a senior named Cynthia. Her furnace had a crack in it and was leaking carbon monoxide into her home. Replacement was the only option.
Thank you to everyone that purchased merchandise and made direct donations to our campaign. It is making a difference in Cynthia's life.
