Teams from the Phoenix law firm of Jaburg Wilk built bikes for Boys Hope Girls Hope of Metro Phoenix. The diverse teams competed with one another to answer questions about community involvement to acquire the tools needed to assemble the bikes. On Monday, the bikes were awarded to Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars that had a GPA over 3.54 and were lucky enough to have their name drawn as a winner.

Mervyn Braude, Jaburg Wilk Community Committee Member said “This was such a fun team building activity that celebrated our community efforts. The scholars of BGHG are a great investment and we were very happy to provide them with new bikes.” As one of the scholars enthusiastically said “Those are some nice bikes!”
