The Sanford Center for Aging won its size division in the Bicycle Commuter Challenge on May 15 by having the highest percentage of its employees register to ride to work that day.

The competition was part of the annual national Bike to Work Day.

At a ceremony in downtown Reno on May 31, the SCA was presented with a plaque and a copy of the sign used to promote the event on RTC Ride buses. Grad assistant Rori Lee led the drive to get SCA employees to register online.
