Deloitte University in Fort Worth, Texas, Strengthens Its Team With A Build-A-Bike Event Building Bikes For 50 Kids

Deloitte University brings its new hires to Fort Worth, Texas, to learn, and build their new team, with a Build-A-Bike team building event. 340 young, and very-bright folks joined the ranks of the Deloitte elite, and built bikes for disadvantaged kids.

This was the first session at this 107 acre campus where bison roam, cattle meander, and Texan wild-life is still wild. After a challenging multiple-day course preparing them for their new positions in 90 cities across the nation, they cut loose, came together as a team, and built some bikes for kids who know no privilege.

The children who joined the new Deloitte hires were a bit shy about accepting something they only dreamed of having – their first bike. To the kids from Summer Santa, and the Boys and Girl’s Club, it was a little miracle.

In accepting the bikes, Diana Reyes, of Summer Santa drew a picture of need that most of us can only imagine. “I made a home visit and the electricity was turned off. They had no furniture, and certainly no bikes.” Mom told Mrs. Reyes that their holidays were very sad and empty. These kids are “at risk” meaning they have already lived some of the most difficult times of their lives. These caring people from Summer Santa, and The Boys and Girl’s Club, reach out to these kids in all kinds of ways.

Deloitte wants these kids to have a better chance in life, and with this team building event the kids now have a bicycle to empower them. This philanthropic team building, says, “Someone outside my family cares about me.” So, hand in hand with the The Leader’s Institute, the Deloitte folks solved some puzzles, won some parts, and built some bikes.
