David Bergum ~ Exploiting an Activity I Love

Posted: 2008-05-28 10:54:18

Hi! I'm Dave Bergum and just retired from a technical job in Raleigh, NC. I had worked at Cisco Systems for the past 7 years, the last 3 in Raleigh. I have had an active involvement in Habitat work days, both at Cisco and through my church, I also enjoy biking, both on the road and on the trail. I think it is great to be able to exploit an activity I love to raise funds for a very worthy organization.

My involvement with Habitat in the past has been limited due to work commitments. Now that I am retired I am able to increase my involvement in Habitat by riding the 500 miler and volunteering weekly for work days.

In the past I have ridden single day events like the Habitat Halloween 100K in Durham, the MS150 in Minnesota and the Tour De Cure 150 in North Carolina. The 500 mile event is going to be a new challenge for me.
