Through the efforts of the KDS Cycling Team, we raised over $18,450 for this year’s event, providing over 3,652 meals to our homebound community making us the top team in the 2018 Wheels For Meals Team Challenge! The entire KDS Commercial Properties team participated in this fundraising event on Saturday, April 28th — some cycled for funds or manned the water stop while others offered their photography skills, arrived early to setup and stayed late for take down — together, we are dedicated to serving this community!
Wheels For Meals, the Meals On Wheels of Greenville signature cycling event, was established in 2007 by one of our own, Larry Webb, principal at KDS Commercial Properties and past Chairman of MOW Greenville.
