AdvanceItUp bikesAs Richmond proudly hosts the UCI 2015 Road World Championships, many of us are inspired to get involved in the action. The folks over at McGuireWoods and Advanced Orthopaedics are getting involved by enabling Richmond kids to get fit. Through the AdvanceItUp! drive, a community initiative, Advanced Orthopaedics will collect donated sports equipment to be donated to local children. With schools and youth athletic organizations as the recipients, the AdvanceItUp! Drive is a great way to make sure that gently used equipment spends more time on the playing field, than it would riding the bench. McGuireWoods LLC is making a generous donation through AdvanceItUp! to Fit4Kids in honor of the upcoming race in the form of a fleet of youth bicycles. These bicycles will be distributed to five Title I schools as part of our Safe Routes to School Program, and will be used to encourage and educate students. An event in celebration of McGuireWoods’ new location and the race commemorated both donations on September 23rd.
