2016 Venus de Miles Bike Event


8z Real Estate was pleased to be the presenting sponsor of the Venus de Miles bike ride

8z Real Estate was pleased to be the presenting sponsor of last month’s Venus de Miles bike ride in Longmont, Colo. The ride took place on Saturday August 27, 2016, starting and ending from the Prospect New Town neighborhood. Venus de Miles is a major fundraiser for Greenhouse Scholars, a nonprofit organization that supports low-income high-achieving students with scholarships, mentorships, and support for college success.

Venus de Miles is unique as it is Colorado’s largest women’s road ride.  This year’s Venus de Miles ride had 1193 rider participants, who raised over $45,648 in donations.

8z Real Estate participated in multiple areas as the event’s presenting sponsor.  Thirty 8z Realtors, staff, and friends of 8z rode in the event as Team Cycle8z, and raised over $1,700 in donations for the event.  Another eight 8zers volunteered serving snacks at a rest station along the course.  Upon finishing the course, the 8z Real Estate logo was on the finish line signage, and the finish line festival.  Riders were invited over to the 8z Shasta, where 8zers served 8z’s signature blue lemonade, popcorn, and ran raffles throughout the afternoon for Venus de Miles participants.

Beyond the participation at the Venus de Miles ride, 8z Real Estate is an active supporter of Greenhouse Scholars.  The company makes a donation on behalf of each buyer or seller who closes a transaction with an 8z Realtor.  Each year several 8z Realtors and staff members have volunteered for the organization’s selection committee, reading applications and interviewing scholarship applicants, to help select the ambitious scholars to benefit from scholarships and support from Greenhouse Scholars.

The 8z Tutu Crew!
