April 11 – 2015, A small group of McFarlan Rowland employees participated in the YMCA Sweat for Strong Kids Charity Cycling Event at the Covent Garden Market in London. Although it was challenging to cycle for 45 minutes, we all had a great time and raised money for a good cause.

The funds raised from this event helps kids and families have access to YMCA programs and services regardless of their financial ability to pay. One-third of the YMCA’s members rely on this fundraiser to give them access to swimming lessons, health and fitness memberships as well as opportunities to go to camp.

This was our second year to participate and it looks like it will turn into an annual event.
