Gran Fondo Makes Record Donations

 May 18, 2014 Houston, TX

The TWFG Insurance Services Gran Fondo: Texas TMCO charity bike ride has made it largest-ever donation to the Texas Medical Center Orchestra and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. On Sunday evening at a TMCO concert, co-founder Mark LeBlanc presented checks to the two charities totaling $74,000. “We are astounded by these donations” stated Ariela Alpert, President of the orchestra who plays first violin.  “This will go far in helping us provide music to the infirmed who may not otherwise have an opportunity to hear good, live concert music.” The TMCO plays not only in grand concert halls such as the Wortham Center in Houston and Festival Hill in Round Top, but in hospitals such as Methodist Hospital Houston. Smaller ensembles play for local medical charities, medical conferences and facilities in the area. In 2013, the orchestra played at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Receiving the donation for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Mindy LeBlanc, Development Manager, stated that “This donation will make it possible for the society to continue its decades-long effort to assist those living with MS, to stop MS in it tracks, and to find a cure for MS.” Since its founding in 1947, the National MS Society has provided over $660 million towards MS research.

During the same ceremony, Mr. LeBlanc presented a trophy to Michael A. Crafts, CLF, LUTCF, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for The Woodlands Financial Group, title sponsor of the bike ride. “We are thrilled to be a part of such a dynamic organization” said Crafts. “The Woodland Financial Group, since its founding by Gordy Bunch a decade ago, has been at the forefront of progress and this is another way for our company to be involved in the community that has supported our rapid growth” said Crafts.

The TWFG Insurance Services Gran Fondo: Texas TMCO charity bike ride was founded in 2011 by Mr. LeBlanc and by Phil Pauzé, both avid cyclists and major fundraisers for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year, it had record rider participation with 2159 registered riders. Over the past four years, it has had over 6400 registered riders making it one of the largest rides recommended by the National MS Society as a lead-up ride to the BP MS 150 Houston-to-Austin ride. Since inception, the ride has donated $187,000 to the two charities. Both the TMCO and the National MS Society are qualified charities under section 501c3 of the IRS code.

TWFG KICK STARTS “GRAN FONDO” BICYCLE RIDE

HOUSTON, December 9, 2013 – Assuming title sponsorship of the Gran Fondo: Texas TMCO™ bicycle ride and race for the benefit of the Texas Medical Center Orchestra and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, was a “natural,” according to Gordy Bunch, president and CEO of The Woodlands Financial Group (TWFG). The “Big Ride” will take place on Sunday, March 30, 2014 along a new route through the hills of Southeast Texas with live music at many of the rest stops.

TWFG Insurance Services, which is headquartered in The Woodlands, TX,  recently adopted a new slogan – “Our Policy is Caring.” Bunch says: “This sponsorship is just further manifestation of our corporate policy. As an insurance agency protecting up to 200,000 policyholders in 38 states, we know that care begins with physical fitness – both for our policyholders and by assisting those afflicted with unfortunate diseases.”

The TWFG Insurance Services Gran Fondo: Texas TMCO™ is a bicycle ride and race that is a recommended ride for the BP MS150 which will be conducted two weeks later. The ride will offer routes of 94, 69, 47, and 12 miles. For those looking for an additional challenge or simply ‘bragging rights’, there will be a timing option for the race. The race is USAC sanctioned and will cover the 94 mile route. Results will be posted and riders recognized at the lunch and concert following the ride. Gran Fondo is Italian and translates approximately to “Big Ride.”

While the longer distances will appeal to highly skilled racers, the 47 and 69 mile routes are also perfect for cyclists preparing for the upcoming BP MS150. All routes will be fully supported for food, hydration, mechanical assistance, SAG, EMS, and safety with Ride Marshals and Motorcycle Marshals in attendance. The overall ride will be in the European gran fondo style with interval starts based on skill levels and distances. All rides will start and finish at the Houston Oaks Country Club & Family Sports Retreat, 22602 Hegar Road, Hockley, Texas.

TWFG founder and president Richard “Gordy” Bunch is a veteran cyclist and major supporter of cycling. He has done the BP MS150 bike ride and competed in the first IRONMAN Texas in 2011.
