Hawk Relay is a Deaf owned and operated telecommunications relay provider for Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Speech disabled people. Hawk Relay operators provide functional equivalence in telecommunications - allowing relay users to communicate with anyone.
Hawk Relay and Momentum Cycling Team will establish the fund: "Racing for the Deaf schools". Late in the Fall of 2008, a fundraiser ride will be established to raise funds for the deaf schools in the U.S., to support providing the best possible education for the deaf children.
Momentum Cycling Team is a professional UCI Track Team based in Los Angeles with current 2008 Olympians Adam Duvendeck, Josiah Ng and Jennie Reed. Jennie is currently a World Champion and a medal favorite in the women's sprints for the Beijing Olympics.
Howard Marans, the owner of the Momentum Cycling Team, had this to say, "We're truly thrilled to have Hawk Relay on board. It means a lot to us to promote Hawk Relay for millions of Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Speech Disabled users in order to break down the communication barriers." Robin Horwitz, a team director for Momentum Cycling Team is deaf and a frequent user of Hawk Relay to communicate with the team members.
"The opportunities for deaf people to interact and work with society has rapidly improved in the last few years and Robin Horwitz is an example of that. His ability to run a professional UCI Track Team with hearing team members is incredible and we wanted to be part of providing communications for the team, sponsors and others" said Sam Hawk, CEO of Hawk Relay. "It's our hope that we can create partnerships with existing and new sponsors in providing access to their services by using the Hawk Relay services," added Hawk.
