Belron US Employees Participate in London Race for Charity

Six Belron US employees will travel to England to compete in the August 4 London Triathlon as part of Belron's corporate team of more than 500 entrants. Belron says its team is the largest of any participating company.

The Triathlon raises money for MaAfrika Tikkun, an organization that assists disadvantaged and impoverished communities in South Africa.

"We are excited that this team of associates will be representing our US division overseas. This is a wonderful event for a good cause, and it's a great opportunity for this team to meet our Belron family from around the globe," said Dan Wilson, president and chief executive officer of Belron US.

The Belron US associates competing in London were all previously with Safelite AutoGlass, which Belron acquired in March. The racers are as follows:

• Geoffrey Cowles, computer operator shift supervisor in Mount Vernon, Ohio;
• Brian Ehrlich, production scheduler in Columbus, Ohio;
• Brent Fiegel, warehouse lead in Davenport, Iowa;
• Paul Groves, director materials management in Columbus;
• Jeremy Ward, contact center coach in Columbus; and
• Matt Weger, IT director in Columbus.

The Belron US group has two teams of swimmers, runners and cyclists who will each complete one leg of the triathlon. Cowles and Weger will each swim 1,500 meters, which is approximately one mile. For their teams, Groves and Fiegel will run 10 kilometers, which is more than six miles. Ehrlich and Ward will each bike 40 kilometers, which is about 25 miles.

Belron says this is the seventh year it has had a large number of associates worldwide participate in the London Triathlon.
