Dear Musselman Devotees,
The holiday season is still upon us. Uncle Eddie was there again. Yes, we all have an uncle Eddie. Sometimes he can be fun and then other times he can be well………not so fun. In the northeast, we are still able to get out and ride our bikes on the road which is by far atypical for this time of the season. Normally we need to use candy canes as gel because they won’t freeze and occasional yellow snow for hydration purposes. Not the yellow snow you are thinking. We are talking about the frozen slushy Gatorade Endurance in our bottles that you need to keep close to your bodies to prevent from freezing. Sometimes the top even gets loose and then it makes for a long, cold, frozen ride. With all of that said we wanted to take a minute to update you on what is happening in the land of the Mussel.
GENEVA BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
Since the inception of Musselman we have always tried to give back as much to the community as possible. The Boys & Girls Club changes lives daily. Children from bilingual homes are taught to read and inadvertently fall in love with reading. Students who lacked the motivation to complete homework assignments are convinced that studying is "cool" and become honor students. As an event with the potential to become nationally recognized and internationally attended, the Musselman seeks to focus public attention on these positive changes and to use event proceeds to support and expand programming opportunities. Since 2004 the Musselman has donated over $130,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Geneva. What does that actually mean? Depending on the use of the funds it could mean the purchase of 26,000 children’s books, or 11818 soccer balls, or 2600 horseback riding lessons, or 1529 pairs of running sneakers, or 650 youth bicycles. The support you have given to the Musselman Community has been a gift to cover all seasons. We say, THANK YOU!!!
