SIOR Sponsors 2017 Children's Hospital Courage Classic
WASHINGTON, DC - July 10, 2017 - The Society of Industrial and Office Realtors® (SIOR) — the world’s leading professional industrial and office real estate association — will sponsor Team Prologis in the 2017 Children’s Hospital Courage Classic, a charity bike race taking place July 22-23 in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. This marks SIOR’s third year sponsoring Team Prologis and comes on the heels of the activation of its inaugural National Service Day, which took place in May.
During the Courage Classic, a community of more than 300 volunteers and 2,000 riders will embark on a two-day journey over Rocky Mountain passes to raise money for Children’s Hospital Colorado patients and their families. Children’s Hospital Colorado is the region's only all-inclusive, nonprofit pediatric hospital.
“Seventy-six years ago, SIOR was founded as a charitable organization, and still today we remain focused on our charity work and are always looking for ways which we can give back to the surrounding community,” explained Geoffrey Kasselman, SIOR’s Global President. “Through sponsoring Prologis, a firm which we are proud to call a long-standing partner, we are thrilled with the opportunity to support the patients and families of Children’s Hospital Colorado.”
As a Bronze Sponsor, SIOR has agreed to a payment of $5,000 made payable to Children’s Hospital Colorado.
“It is truly an honor to represent SIOR, an organization comprised of thoughtful, giving community leaders, at an event that will do so much good for the patients and families of Children’s Hospital Colorado,” said Paul Kluck, a past SIOR Board Member and First Vice President of CBRE/Colorado. “These children deserve the best care possible, and it’s exciting to be part of an event that will help provide the resources to make this a reality.”
Kluck will be representing SIOR as a cyclist on Team Prologis during the Courage Classic.
Riders, volunteers, sponsors and donors raised $2.5 million for Children’s Hospital Colorado patients through the 2016 Courage Classic.
Established in 1941, SIOR now extends to 48 chapters worldwide, consisting of nearly 3,100 members in more than 630 cities in 35 countries with plans to further expand its global footprint.
