Ten R&D staff members geared up August 17 to bike in support of local charities in the EUA Beyond Design Bike Tour. R&D sponsored the biker’s participation while supporting the event that raised funds this year for the Eppstein Uhen Foundation, Groundwork Milwaukee and REAP Food Group.

Although riders from R&D have participated in past years, this is the first year the company has sponsored a large group.

“This event is a real opportunity for us to do something positive for the community with a great group of people,” said Ring & DuChateau Partner/Principal Paul Albrecht.

This year’s event was record setting, with more than 400 riders and more than $103,000 raised for the charities.
