Clemson Football Co-Offensive Coordinator to Speak at 2019 Resilience Awards Dinner
Greenville, SC | February 22, 2019 – Momentum Bike Clubs (MBC), a community mentoring initiative of the Institute on Family and Neighborhood Life at Clemson University, is proud to announce that Tony Elliott, Co-Offensive Coordinator for Clemson Football, will deliver the keynote address at their first annual Resilience Awards Dinner. The event will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at First Baptist Church in Greenville. Coach Elliott will share his story of overcoming childhood trauma to becoming a significant part of Clemson’s rise to the top of college football.
MBC operates 19 bike clubs across Greenville County that offer middle and high school students the opportunity to engage in the vigorous exercise of cycling among caring mentors and peers. MBC promotes positive outcomes for youth by providing opportunities, fostering positive relationships, and offering consistent support to build on their leadership potential. Since its inception in 2010, MBC has served over 800 youth and have collectively ridden over 90,000 miles.
At this event, we will honor a number of our MBC students in recognition of their exceptional commitment and personal growth through Momentum Bike Clubs. Most importantly, this fundraising event will provide critical financial support to expand our reach to support students who are equally talented, but lack support and opportunity.
Sponsorship opportunities for the Resilience Awards Dinner are as follows:
- Title Sponsor- $5,000
- Climb Sponsor- $2,500
- Table Sponsor $1,000
- Ride Sponsor- $500
“We look forward to honoring our students at this event and know that Coach Elliott’s personal story will resonate with many attendees in the room,” stated Executive Director of Momentum Bike Clubs, David Taylor. “The mission of Momentum Bike Clubs is to lift students and maximize their potential and we hope that you can come experience this special event first hand on Thursday, April 11th.”
