Accruit CEO Brent Abrahm has completed the 2014 Preferred Gran Fondo. The 2-day event is a cycling tour of Illinois, Indiana and Michigan to raise money for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). This year's event raised over $20,000, which directly supports NFTE participants in Chicago-area schools.
NFTE inspires young people from low-income communities to find their paths to success. NFTE works closely with educators in high-need schools to re-engage students in learning, introduce them to business concepts, and open up their possibilities for the future.
Since its inception in 1987, NFTE has worked with more than 500,000 young people from low-income communities in programs across the U.S. and around the world.
Brent is an avid road cyclist and strong believer in the importance of education on business. In addition to his support of NFTE, he serves on the Board of Directors for Colorado Succeeds, a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of business leaders committed to improving the state's education system.
