Onbikes builds and donates bicycles across the country to children in need
TAMPA, Fla. (January 29, 2017) – This past weekend Peerfit, a digital platform that makes it easy for insurance carriers, brokers and employers to offer fitness classes to their clients and employees, teamed up with onbikes and joined their Arrrgh! House Powered by McKibbon Hospitality, at the 101st Annual Gasparilla Invasion and Parade of the Pirates presented by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla.
The 4.5 mile Gasparilla Parade of the Pirates featured 103 floats, 3 marching bands and over 50 participating organizations. Gasparilla is the third largest parade in the United States with an average attendance of around 300,000 people.
“This is Peerfit’s first year participating in the Gasparilla Parade of the Pirates,” said Peerfit’s Director of Client Services, Alexandra Markopoulos. “We are strong supporters of the onbikes team and we had a great time being able to help bring more awareness to their mission to restore the self-confidence, health, and overall well-being of at-risk kids in the community.”
This isn’t the first time Peerfit has supported onbikes. During the 2017 holiday season, Peerfit teamed up with onbikes for their annual Bike Build and Winter Wonder Ride where more than 800 bikes were built for at-risk youth and delivered across the country during the holiday season.
“Onbikes is making a big difference for foster and at-risk-youth across the country and we plan to continue to support their growth throughout 2018,” said Markopoulos.
