JCB donates $100,000 to Lady Bamford Center

More than 2,000 runners, riders and spectators really went the distance at JCB's third annual Mud Run and first evert Dig the Ride Cycling event last month.

In the process, JCB raised more than $100,000 for the Lady Bamford Center for Early Childhood Development. The center provides education for children six weeks to five years of age from homeless and low-income families.

JCB presented the check to the center on Monday.

"We have various facilities that we help support everywhere that JCP does business around the world," said Thom Peebles, VP of Marketing at JCB. "This is the one we selected for here in Savannah, in this local market, because we feel very strongly that education begins at early childhood."

"Awesome experience today," said Tammy Mixon, executive director of the Lady Bamford Center. "We are so grateful for those who had the vision and took the first time to put this event together, so we could continue to provide quality services for children at The Lady Bamford Center."

JCB said this is the most they have ever been able to donate.
