Leading multi-channel electronics distributor element14 Pty Ltd is organising a fundraiser with the help of its employees and sponsored Paralympic athletes in aid of the KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centre.
element14 is organising the 12-hour company-wide cycling challenge at its office where employees aim to raise money for each kilometre cycled.
The event will also be attended by element14’s sponsored Paralympic athletes, David Stone and Sam Kavanagh who are in Australia this week for two races at the UCI Paracycling Road World Cup in Sydney.
Cyclists Sam Kavanagh from North America and David Stone from the United Kingdom will also visit element14’s Australian office in Chester Hill, NSW this week to share their experience as world-class athletes.
The athletes will also be promoting some of the latest innovations in sports technology via the dedicated sport technology portal on element14, the online technology e-community for electronic design engineers.
Peter Davis, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, element14 comments that the company is committed to providing support and technical expertise towards helping the two athletes accomplish their goals at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Throughout 2012, element14 will continue to work with both athletes to understand the role that technology plays in cycling, moving beyond offering monetary support to engaging electronic design engineers via a dedicated section on their technology resource and online community portal.
element14 is an exclusive e-community specially built for these engineers to share information, collaborate and seek support.
