A portion of the proceeds from Gran Fondo Hincapie will benefit the local charity Meals on Wheels. Meals on Wheels provides nutrious meals and personal contact to seniors throughout Greenville County. Almost 10,000,000 meals have been provided since the charity was established.
Gran Fondo Hincapie has partnered with the Greenville chapter of Meals on Wheels since the very first ride in 2012. When a cyclist purchases an entrance to the Fondo, a portion of that ticket goes straight to Meals on Wheels. In 2016, proceeds came to $25,000, equating to more than 5,000 hot meals. Since 2012, donations from Hincapie Gran Fondos have totaled more than $130,000—enough to feed 130 clients for a full year.
