Team MichaelSilver Rides in the 2018 Chicago Honor Ride

Jun 11, 2018

MichaelSilver was proud to field a team to participate in Honor Ride Chicago, organized by our client, Rob Paddor, owner of Evanston Subaru.

13 employees, friends, and family members joined hundreds of other cyclists to ride in support of the program that raises crucial, life-changing funds in support of local Project Hero’s local programs, which have proven results helping wounded, ill and healing veterans improve their physical and mental health at no cost to them.

Once again, our team was a top fundraiser. We are proud to say that we came in first place this year, raising a total $4,871 for this fantastic organization!

After Eric Larson made sure all of our bikes were in good condition, we set off on the 18-mile course amidst the ongoing rain, not a perfect morning for a ride through the northern suburbs, but worth it. The trail took us through Skokie, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, and Evanston. After the ride, we were welcomed back by cheering crowds and medals and treated to a salsa band and a made-to-order taco lunch that was delicious and truly appreciated.

Many thanks to MichaelSilver for sponsoring our entry fees again this year and to all of our co-workers who donated so generously. This event has become a truly wonderful firm tradition.
