PorchLight’s very own, Janet is hands-on at Graebel’s Relocation Policy & Strategy Summit in Denver this week! This team built a bike for Aaron during the event Graebel hosted! All bikes went to participants in Colorado Uplift, a program that focuses on character, life-skill, career prep, mentoring and tutoring in Denver and Aurora public schools.

Those enrolled in the program have a 98% graduation rate vs. 60% for those not enrolled and 86% of their kids go to college. There were 23 “bike assembly” groups that built 23 bikes for various Colorado Uplift kids! PorchLight was proud to be a sponsor of Graebel’s Summit and participate in this event to benefit such a great cause!

Everyone is all smiles! And Aaron, we hope you love your new bike! Keep up the good work!
