Help AAA AUGER Plumbing Services Fort Worth Support a Good Cause

AAA AUGER doesn’t only offer plumbing services Fort Worth trusts, we also support community projects we believe in. We love getting involved in organizations and projects that make our community stronger. In the past, we’ve been involved with food drives, helped to rebuild a home and ridden our bikes to help prevent diabetes. Recently, we’ve found a new cause to get behind and we can’t wait to kick it off, literally!

We’ll be raising money to support the Bridges Safehouse organization and all the wonderful work they do by participating in a Kick-a-thon. This non-profit organization provides transitional housing for homeless pregnant women and women in crisis. They instill faith and hope in women and provide a safe place for them to rest and rebuild their lives. The organization serves about 60 women a year of an average age of 23. About one third of the women have children or are expecting. These women need a safe place to stay in order to start a new future for their children and themselves.

AAA AUGER Plumbing Services Fort Worth owner David Cross is participating in a Kick-a-thon on March 2, 2012 to raise money for Bridges Safehouse. He and his fellow martial artists have pledged to perform 1,000 kicks and are looking for charitable people to sponsor the event. Anything starting from a penny per kick to support the event would be greatly appreciated. Contact AAA AUGER to help us kick off this fundraiser!

You may also make a direct donation to the Bridges Safehouse or shop the Bridges Thrifty Boutique whose proceeds go to aiding the Bridges Safehouse. The Thrifty Boutique is located on 220 West Beltline Road, Cedar Hill, Texas, 75104.

» Ride for the American Diabetes Association

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

David Cross, CEO of AAA AUGER, completed another century ride this Saturday (7/23/2011) in support of the American Diabetes Association.

Last year, David entered his first ever organized cycling event, signing up for the 100 mile course. Not haven ridden for over 25 years, this was quite a commitment. The landscape changed when he dislocated and fractured 2 toes just 6 weeks before the event.

David finished that event in 7 hours, 59 minutes in over 100 degree heat…and swore off future participation. However, just a few months later, David couldn’t say “no” to the 2011 event.

“My wife is a type 1 Diabetic. Diabetes affects our whole family as we share in her struggles. Factually, the day before I signed up for the event in 2010, I was awakened by my wife as she was seizing (seizure) in a coma; her head hitting the headboard.

There really isn’t much time for thought…The immediate objective is to raise her blood sugar by any means possible…..I gave her a shot of glucagon in her stomach, rubbed honey on her lips and tongue, and had a coke ready should she gain consciousness and be able to drink….”

“Luckily, with the grace of God, she came to consciousness within about 20 minutes….Once her eyes were able to focus, I knew we were out of the woods. There is no prettier site than watching her ‘come alive’ (of course, I could do without having such future opportunities).”

“Anyhow, the next day, there was Quin Neal (VP for the American Diabetes Association) at our Rotary Club meeting, attempting to sign people up for the Tour De Cure. It was certainly a calling for me to do this….”

As mentioned earlier, David completed his second ride for the charity. Not having to contend with broken toes, and because the 100 mile course was removed in lieu of a 62 mile one (metric century, 100K), David completed the ride in good form and with good attitude (well, almost)…..
