Since 2005, BNSF has been a proud host of a regional cycling event for the Special Olympics Texas team. This year’s event began with an inspiring opening ceremony parade, featuring a symbolic torch and the National Anthem. With 25 athletes participating in 500-meter or 25-kilometer bike races, it was a day filled with cycling, music, and celebration. The festivities concluded with an award ceremony and cookout.

“If you [volunteer] once, you’ll want to do it forever,” Ed King, of BNSF’s Customer Support team, explained. “After all the planning is taken care of, the event is all smiles, high-fives, and hugs.”

The Special Olympics is committed to creating a world of inclusion and community for everyone, regardless of ability or disability. At BNSF, we’re proud to support their mission and the communities and employees we serve.
