A Revolution Ride Corporate Team is a great way to spend an inspiring day outside with colleagues, co-workers, and friends while supporting the unique adaptive sports and recreation programs BORP offers. A Corporate Team must be affiliated with a company or business. Business owners, company executives, employees, and their families and friends may join the team.
A Corporate Team must have at least three fundraising team members. Riding participants, Festival-ONLY guests and non-riding Virtual Participants may fundraise for a Corporate Team. Only team members who attend the event are eligible for prizes, however. All fundraising participants make a real difference in the lives of BORP athletes: people living with physical disabilities and visual impairments in the Bay Area.
Benefits of a Rev Corporate Team:
- Encourage team building and camaraderie among your employees
- Enhance corporate pride, employee retention and engagement
- Promote health and wellness within your organization
- Increase company visibility in the community
- Foster collaboration across departments
- Create opportunities for business networking internally and with other corporate teams
- Be inspired by a BORP athlete available to speak to your team at your place of business
- Opportunity to ride with a BORP athlete at the Rev
- Teams of 10 or more riders qualify their company’s logo to be featured on the official Revolution jersey (team must have 10 members by August 22)
Corporate Team Members will receive:
- A Rev t-shirt & swag bag;
- a gourmet meal after the ride with complimentary wine and beer;
- a free massage after the ride from a professional massage therapist.
- $10 off an official Rev cycling jersey (requires separate discount code-ask your Captain for details);
- Plus, the top fundraising Corporate team and top individual Corporate Team fundraiser are eligible to win great prizes.
What does a Corporate Team Cost the Company?
Companies can support their team in a number of ways:
Full Sponsorship: The company will pay 100% of the registration fees and the balance of the minimum fundraising requirement for each team member (see below for fundraising requirements).
Partial Sponsorship: The company will pay a portion of the fees and provide logistical support to the team members who will be responsible for the balance of the fundraising.
Logistical Support: With this option, employees will be responsible for their own fundraising, but the company can offer incentives to increase participation. Additionally, employers can support team recruitment efforts, underwrite team jerseys and other equipment, or offer to provide matching funds.
Fundraising minimums vary based on the size of the team. For comparison, non-Corporate team participants must raise a minimum of $400.
|No. of Corporate Riders||Fundraising Minimum|
|3-4||$375 per rider or $1,125 – $1,500 per team|
|5-7||$350 per rider or $1,750 – $2,450 per team|
|8-9||$325 per rider or $2,600 – $2,925 per team|
|10-14||$300 per rider or $3,000 – $4,200 per team|
|15-20||$285 per rider or $4,275 – $5,700 per team|
Members of Corporate Teams receive 50% off the standard registration fee of $50.
