DENVER – The SEG Foundation Program “Geoscientists Without Borders” was one winner in an event sponsored by ION at the SEG annual meeting. Kate Readio was the other winner.

ION raised almost $2,000 for the SEG program that aims to connect communities around the world which could benefit from the help of applied geophysics projects. The program has been involved in projects ranging from addressing a rural India water supply shortage to helping Jamaica prepare for an earthquake.

ION’s event offered as a prize for a tax-exempt donation a vintage 2978 Raleigh bicycle refurbished by Brad Coram, ION Sensor sales manager in the Netherlands. Coram “recycles” old frames from donor bicycles into fixed-gear show bikes.

Readio, who won the bike, is the general manger for Nature’s Own in Boulder, Colorado. As an enthusiastic runner, cyclist, and cross-country skier, Readio makes a perfect winner
