Bikes cost money, and in today's economic environment parents are making tough decisions about what they can and can't afford for their children. That's where George knew Red Hat could step in and help.

"Red Hat encourages its associates to actively participate in the communities where they live, work and play," said George. "As a long-time member of the Y, I saw a great opportunity for Red Hat to give back to the Triangle community and partner with the Y to improve the lives of local children while also building positive bonds and encouraging teamwork across members of Red Hat's Americas Facilities team."

On October 21, eight teams comprised of three Red Hat associates will take part in a team-building event, traveling around Chapel Hill to gather bike parts and paraphernalia from various shops. They'll then return to the Carolina Inn, where they will assemble the parts as a team to build a kid-sized bike.
