Medal to the Pedal
Thanks to Shannon Braymen, kids from Madison Elementary have been riding home in June with new bikes every year since 2005. Shannon collaborated with educators from the school to establish their “Medal to the Pedal” incentive program for perfect attendance. One hundred days into the school year, children who have achieved this goal receive a medal at a celebratory party as a benchmark that they are half way there. At the end of the year, every student that has reached the goal receives a new bike, helmet and lock. This year 108 out of 650 students received bicycles. This is a huge win-win for the kids and the district as student attendance directly correlates to funding received by the school. Facility RX has been a proud sponsor of this event since its inception.
In April 2016, Facility RX donated our site, to host, and our warehouse, to store, the materials collected for the International Interior Design Association of San Antonio’s Zero Landfill bi-annual recycling event. Specification samples including tile, fabric, carpet, wood and paint samples are collected and donated by architects and interior designers and offered free of charge to members of the community.
