A portion of the proceeds from Gran Fondo Hincapie benefit Meals on Wheels of Greenville County, an organization that provides nutritious meals and personal contact to the homebound throughout Greenville County.
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.
