World T.E.A.M. Sports Welcomes DuPont Fabros Technology as Face of America Sponsor

Holbrook, New York (PRWEB) January 21, 2015

National data center developer and operator DuPont Fabros Technology is joining with World T.E.A.M. Sports to support the non-profit organizations annual Face of America bicycle and hand cycle ride honoring injured veterans. The April 24-26 ride from the Pentagon in Washington D.C. to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is one of the largest non-competitive rides in the capital region.

DuPont Fabros Technology serves many industry leaders such as Microsoft, Rackspace and Facebook in providing continuous power and cooling for computer servers and network equipment. The Washington, D.C. based corporation manages facilities from New Jersey and Virginia to Illinois and California.

World T.E.A.M. Sports is proud to welcome DuPont Fabros Technology to our family of sponsors. It is only through the support of our sponsors that we are able to continue our mission, said Van Brinson, World T.E.A.M. Sports CEO and President. We welcome them and look forward to working with them on this event and future events.

At the Face of America ride, a two-day, 110-mile bicycle journey from Virginia to the historic battlefields of Gettysburg, nearly 150 injured veterans from all branches of service will ride bicycles, hand cycles and recumbent bicycles alongside more than 400 active-duty military personnel, retired veterans and civilians.

DuPont Fabros Technology is proud to sponsor the Face of America ride from World T.E.A.M. Sports, said Senior Vice President Lee Kestler. This is an organization with a meaningful cause that impacts every person living in America. Aligning ourselves with the Face of America is one small way we can offer our support and appreciation to the men and women who serve our country.

In its ninth year traversing the scenic byways and roads of western Maryland, the Face of America is increasingly popular with injured veterans. Participating riders with disabilities assist and support each other and able-bodied riders provide a helping hand or words of encouragement during some of the steeper hills of northern Maryland. Originally run in 2000 as a cross-country ride with two teams meeting under the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the ride served as the official 9/11 commemorative ride in 2002 and 2003. In 2002, more than one thousand riders participated in the three-day ride, which began at Ground Zero in New York and ended at the Pentagon. This years ride will be the largest for the non-profit World T.E.A.M. Sports since the 2003 Face of America, with registered participants from across the United States, Canada and Europe.

The 2015 Face of America Ride is supported through sponsorship support from Capital One Bank, American Portfolios Financial Services, Booz Allen Hamilton, Benson Botsford LLC, BODYARMOR, Devens Recycling, DuPont Fabros Technology, Fidelity & Guaranty Life, FootStomp.com, Freshbikes, General Electric, Penske Truck Rental, Subway of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Three Wire Systems LLC, U.S. Silica, Vedder Price and Veterans Corps of America.

Apple Visual Graphics Selected to Create Vehicle Graphics for Mobile Health Units

LONG ISLAND CITY, NY (PRWEB) January 14, 2015

Apple Visual Graphics has been commissioned by the William F. Ryan Community Health Network to re-brand two of its mobile outreach units with custom vehicle graphics.

We are proud to work with an important medical resource for our community, said Apple Visual Graphics CEO Howard Sturm.

The two mobile units, from the Ryan-NENA Community Health Center and the William F. Ryan Community Health Center locations respectively, provide the local community with on-site HIV testing and screening for other sexually transmitted infections. The company started designing and printing the graphics in December of 2014, and will complete installation by mid-January of 2015.

The health center returned to partner with Apple Visual Graphics after the printing company did similar work for a larger mobile health unit last year. The company offers everything from simple door graphics to custom full-vehicle wraps designed to maximize branding opportunities, handling both in-house design and installation to ensure high quality. Whenever a company or organization owns vehicles, regardless of their purpose, we can help them figure out how to use that exposure in the best possible way, Sturm said.

Sturm emphasized the importance of striking the right tone with the graphics in this particular project such that community members would want to take advantage of the services offered by the mobile health vehicles.

The purpose of the new design is to be more accessible to communities with young men and women of various ethnic backgrounds, Sturm explained. Providing clean, safe and modern vehicles for health screenings is important to reaching more people in the community that might not otherwise have a way to receive vital medical care.

In addition to himself, Sturm said that Julius Cancel, Graphic Designer; Sabrina Ramos, Account Manager; and Adam Sturm, President, had worked to bring the project to fruition.

And so far, Sturm shared, feedback has been very positive: People love the new graphics, he said. They look fresh and modern.
