On September 17, more than 25 Cat Financial employees and friends from the Nashville office braved a rainy Saturday morning to ride for a good cause at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Cycle for Life. The event was internally sponsored by the company’s wellness program, which helped to provide training rides and motivation for employees interested in participating. On race day, team members had the chance to complete one of three routes, 15, 30 and 65 miles

Cyclists had the opportunity to ride 15, 30 or 65 miles.

In addition to the ride itself, the team spent several months fundraising and hosting events for employees, including a happy hour, jeans day, and a breakfast complete with a waffle bar.

Cat Financial set an event record, registering the most riders and taking home the top corporate team award. Together, the team raised close to $14,000. The cause was extra meaningful to two employees affected by CF, each with a close family member living with the disease.

The ride was a great opportunity for the Cat Financial team to showcase their commitment for health, wellness and supporting the communities where employees live and work.

 Through fundraising, employee events and a company match, Cat Financial team members presented the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with a donation to help find a cure for all those living with CF.
