Team Little Guys first fundraiser nets 8000
GREENSBORO, N.C. (9/30/09)--Team Little Guy, a group of cyclists in North Carolina hoping to raise $100,000 for Hope for the Warriors, a nonprofit that assists and cares for wounded veterans, kicked off the team's first event Saturday and raised nearly $8,000. North Carolina Credit Union League and Marine FCU are sponsoring the team, which will participate in a series of athletic events to raise money for the Warrior's Hope and Care Center, which will be built near Camp LeJeune (ENCToday.com Sept. 29). Saturday's event was the Tour to Tanglewood in Greensboro. Team Little Guy--named after the Credit Union National Association's Little Guy featured in its advocacy and awareness campaign--has been taking part in fundraisers for about three years, according to Eric Gelly, executive vice president and chief operating officer of the league. He told the newspaper that the Little Guy featured on team T-shirts and logos represents the credit union ideal of "looking out for the average everyday folks." Most of the team work for local credit unions. They range in age from 27 to 63, but most are in their 40s, Gelly said. He added that the group's relationship with Hope for the Warriors is more personal this year. One of the team's veteran riders, Army reserve Lt. Col. Thomas Heyden, shipped out to Iraq on Sunday.
