Thirteen staff members from Orbus Exhibit & Display Group, a leading trade supplier of exhibit and display products, participated in the 500-mile Rainbow Challenge Bike Tour on Sept. 22. Orbus Exhibit & Display Group is the North American trade division of the P3 Group.
Departing from the Evanston Ecology Center in Evanston, Ill., participants raised money for Over the Rainbow, a non-profit association dedicated to helping individuals with physical disabilities.
Biking along the North Shore Century in Chicago, each of the riders travelled 25-100 mile routes. Donations made to the Orbus team were generously matched by the company, raising a total of $19,040.
“We had a terrific turnout from the Orbus family in response to the Over the Rainbow Challenge ride,” said Simon Perutz, president, P3 Group North America. “Our team rode a combined total of over 500 miles, enjoying the beautiful North Shore neighborhoods and refreshing breezes of Lake Michigan, all while supporting this great cause.”
Over the Rainbow is an Illinois non-profit association dedicated to increasing the quality of life for people with physical disabilities through the creation of affordable, barrier-free housing solutions that encourage independence.
