TRSA associate member ARCO/Murray recently held its ninth annual Bike Ride for the Kids 100-mile charitable ride from downtown Chicago to the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN. In total, the event raised $35,000, according to a company news release.

The funds raised by Bike Ride for the Kids are used to support FIRST LEGO League, specifically the team at the Robinson Center, a South Bend, IN-based community center which provides after school programs for area children. FIRST LEGO League introduces students to real-world engineering concepts by constructing LEGO-based robots which allow them to explore their imagination and discover career possibilities. The Lego Robotics Program at the Robinson Center offers seventh and eighth grade students an opportunity to combine research and computer programming skills in a fun and exciting way.
