Build-a-BikeMDI Group hosted a Build-A-Bike workshop during its annual Kick Off event held at Château Élan in Braselton, Georgia. Sponsored by the Ella Marie Foundation, this event encouraged team building amongst its offices, stressed the importance of communication and exemplified MDI Group’s love of philanthropic events. As a company, MDI Group assembled and provided 10 bikes for deserving families and children from the Atlanta area.

The Build-A-Bike team building event combined community service with a brainy, challenging, and fun workshop. In order to acquire the necessary parts and tools to build each bike, the teams had to overcome a series of challenges. They learned fairly quickly that they must rely on leadership, communication and collaboration to accomplish the ultimate goal of building each bike. The Build-A-Bike workshop was not only educational, but also a truly rewarding experience as the participants were able to see the smiling faces of the excited children at the end of the event.

MDI Group and the Ella Marie Foundation donated the 10 children’s bikes and helmets to St. Brendan’s Catholic Church located north of Atlanta, Georgia. St. Brendan’s Catholic Church currently assists over 2,000 families through various programs that focus on material, emotional, health and other needs. The representatives from St. Brendan’s Catholic Church were overjoyed with the donations and could not wait to surprise additional families in the weeks to come. MDI Group and the Ella Marie Foundation are proud to support a great cause!
