Serve Others

Team Modus Milers

As an organization, we live up to our core value by serving our colleagues, our guests and our community at large.  Twice a year, our Modus Milers cycling team raises awareness and money for causes that we’re passionate about:

Bike to the Beach is a Washington DC based non-profit organization that hosts a bicycle race to raise money to support those on the autism spectrum. The race runs over 100 miles from Washington DC to Dewey Beach, DE. Modus Milers has participated in the event the last 7 years, raising $45,000!

Cycle for Survival’s indoor team cycling events raise funds that are critical for rare cancer research. 100% of every donation to Cycle for Survival is directly allocated to research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events. 2020 was our 8th year riding with Cycle For Survival, raising over $260,000 for this great cause!
