Team Paul Mitchell Schools Rides Again!by How You Can Give Back on 6/1/2007
For the fourth consecutive year, Paul Mitchell Schools fielded a team in the 7-day, 585-mile AIDS/LifeCycle bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. This year’s team included 17 school owners and Learning Leaders who raised over $50,000 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the HIV/AIDS services of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center.
“You would be SO proud of our Team Paul Mitchell The School riders,” said Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh. “Their butts are sore, their knees are aching, but they all have stories of life-changing experiences!” Paul Mitchell Chairman and CEO John Paul DeJoria acknowledged the riders for taking time from their own lives to go on a ride that will benefit others. “You are super cool!” he said.
The team had plenty of support throughout the ride. Winn Claybaugh and school co-owner Nina Galvin followed along in a car to film, take photos, and even do laundry for the team. A group of 25 Future Professionals showed up at a rest stop to cheer for the riders and spritz them with Awapuhi Moisture Mist, and another passionate group welcomed them home at the finish line. In total, the event raised $11 million.
