MPT's Team "Training Wheels " helps to raise over $3000 for Kids In Distress

MPT proudly supports Kids in Distress

Thank you to all the students and local maritime community members who supported the “crew” at MPT as we cycled our way through this year’s Marine Industry Spin –a- Thon, held at the Zoo Health Club on Fort Lauderdale beach on July 16th. Our dedicated team raised over $3,000 to help assist Kids in Distress in their efforts throughout South Florida to end child abuse and neglect.

We’ve already committed ourselves to doubling our fund raising efforts for next year and look forward to having a student team participate as well. Are you up to it – 6 hours of spinning in the South Florida heat? We are issuing the challenge to every student to come and “play” with us at the next event. Just imagine what we can accomplish together!

Special thanks to MPT student Laura DeRonde who helped relieve our very tired team.
