Project Hero’s Honor Ride Event Recap

Las Vegas Project Hero’s Honor Ride in Las Vegas

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team started celebrating Veteran’s Day early by participating in Project Hero’s Honor Ride on Saturday, November 9, 2019 in Las Vegas. It was a wonderful event that started out with a wedding of two of the riders, one being a disabled veteran.

That was followed by an award of a custom built recumbent bike that Lerner and Rowe had built for a veteran.

We first learned of the Project Hero Honor ride when one of our employees asked the office to donate to the bicycle event that he participates in annually in honor of his father. We were so moved by the mission and vision of Project Hero that we sponsored their event last year.

Of all the events we do in 6 states, we fell in love with how Project Hero honors our veterans and first responders, so this year we wanted to help them even more by providing a bike to one of our local veterans who would benefit the most. This is a perfect example of why we named our non-profit Lerner and Rowe Gives Back. –Glen Lerner.

Dusk to Dawn Pedestrian Awareness Campaign Sponsor

In the past 12 months, there have been 63 crosswalk fatalities in Southern Nevada. As a community sponsor of the Dusk to Dawn Pedestrian Awareness campaign, our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team was on hand to help pass out reflective wrist bands at a recent community event.

The wrist bands are just one of the ways the campaign is trying to help prevent fatal collisions by making pedestrians more visible to motorists during darker driving times from dusk to dawn.

Additionally, the Dusk to Dawn Pedestrian Awareness campaign drew chalk outlines of bodies on Clark County roads where pedestrians have been killed.

This awareness tool was designed to put a “face” to the campaign. By doing so, motorist see a real reminder of what can happen if they are not alert to their surroundings, and/or pedestrians not doing what they can to be more visible to others.

Las Vegas Project Hero’s Honor Ride

Catrike 700 Donation

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team visited Southwest Bikes yesterday, where we watched the master bike builders at Southwest Bikes assemble a Catrike 700 that will be awarded next Saturday, November 9th at the Las Vegas Project Hero’s Honor Ride.

The specialty recumbent bike will enable this former member of the Army and Air Force, (thus Air Force blue color) to cycle as an effective alternative therapy for PTSD and TBI treatment, as well as for physical therapy and injury rehabilitation.

It is a privilege to support the Project Hero Honor Ride, and many veterans whom they serve. It is humbling to ‘give back’ to a few of our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our nation. We are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in one of our veteran’s lives. -Glen Lerner

Volunteering at Chicago Animal Care and Control

Our Chicagoland team members had the opportunity to volunteer on November 2,  2019 with Chicago Animal Care and Control’s Safe Humane program. This fun-filled day was spent learning about the various programs offered, helping with enrichment, and socializing with the dogs and cats.

Our staff’s hearts were full from all of the love and affection shown from these amazing animals. It was an honor to give back and be able to present a $500 check on behalf of Lerner and Rowe to help further the mission of Safe Humane Chicago!
