Magnus International Group Completes ‘Bike for a Tyke’ Program with Tri-C
Corporate College team-building exercise results in bikes for four children
Employees at Magnus International Group built and donated bicycles to four local children after completing the “Bike for a Tyke” team-building exercise offered through Corporate College® at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Fifteen Magnus employees recently gathered at the company’s Hardy Industrial Technologies plant in Lake County to spend an afternoon building and customizing the bikes. The event was the finale to a recent leadership training program employees completed at Corporate College.
Soon after the employees finished tightening bolts on the two-wheelers, the bikes were presented to four Painesville-area children between the ages of 8 and 12.
The gifts were arranged through the Lake County Juvenile Diabetes Walk Family.
“It was a fun opportunity and meaningful way to wrap up this round of management training,” said Scott Forster, co-owner of Magnus. “As with everything they’ve done for Magnus and Hardy, Corporate College put on a great and memorable program.”
Forster said the “most worthwhile moments were watching the kids and their families react to the bikes” after seeing the gifts for the first time.
Bike for a Tyke is a new program at Corporate College. It brings a company’s employees together to work on a team-building project that results in granting a wish to a member of the community.
Successfully building a bike requires co-workers to communicate, solve problems and test leadership skills in order to meet a goodwill goal.
