I had the pleasure of joining the Social & Scientific Systems/EDGE Cycling Team’s 2013 Kick-off event in Bethesda, MD! The event was hosted by the team’s co-captains, Kevin Beverly and Eben Block. Each year they seem to outdo themselves with their team events, and have a great time while doing so!

The event was hosted at Bethesda’s Hard Times Cafe, which is a great local sports bar and restaurant. Kevin and Eben invited their teammates out, as well as potential new teammates, to share information with them about the event and their team. $20 got each person wings and beer, and the proceeds went straight to their team fundraising. The Hard Times Cafe also supported the event by giving them a deal on food and drinks.

Eben and Kevin also did a great job collecting raffle items to give away. Everyone who make it out to the event was given a ticket, a many in attendance won some pretty cool stuff– including a Ride for the Roses jersey!

At the event, we were able to register 13 new members to their team! Way to go, guys!


Let 24 Foundation staff know if your team is hosting an event! We’d love to help you in any way we can!
