In addition to the Silver level sponsorship, ACD sponsored the “Spirit of NICA” award for 1 male and 1 female student athlete on each of the 15 teams. The award was given to students who embodied the “Strong Mind, Strong Body & Strong Character” NICA philosophy.

ACD makes an additional monthly donation to the NJICL, based on their customer referral program.
Volunteering Our Time
In addition to, and in many ways more valuable than the financial support, ACD staff also contribute volunteer hours to the NJICL. President Heather Kahl, VP David Kahl, Tom Gallagher, BJ Kisch, and Chris Donohue, have collectively spent over 250 hours as either founding members of the Board, mentors for the “Girls Rock” program, race directors, or as team coaches, ride leaders or team assistants.
