Preschoolers Read to Ride at Spirax Sarcoâ??s Pedal Car EventBoys and girls ages three and four got the chance to race across the world — or perhaps just across a drive — at a pedal car event organized by Spirax Sarco, Blythewood, S.C. The maker of steam system solutions sponsored the collaborative team-building and charity event for Saint John’s Preschool on Friday, March 13.

A group of 250 employees came together in a series of intensely competitive and complex strategic team-building activities to earn parts to build classic pedal cars.

The United Way of the Midlands coordinated the event. Each child who received a car was selected for their involvement in a pre-kindergarten reading program. Spirax Sarco hosted the children and their families on-site to award the “Retro Roadrunner” car. To see video from the event, visit
