Harrisburg, PA, October 31, 2008 - On-Q/Legrand, the leader in home systems, announced today that it has joined with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to help a Geneva, NY family in need. On-Q provided home theater, lyriQ multi-room audio and Selective Call Intercom systems to the renovation of the 200-year-old farm house.
The episode will feature the family of Tim Hill, a former aspiring boxer who now dedicates his time, home and money to teaching underprivileged children how to box. Tim delivers lessons to the children free of charge, with the goal of offering a constructive pastime that will build their sense of pride.
"We have immense respect for the Hill family, and we're happy to help such a deserving cause," said On-Q President Doug Fikse. "We hope that the boxers will enjoy On-Q's lyriQ audio system in the gym and workout areas while they train, and that communications throughout the home will be eased by On-Q's Selective Call Intercom."
This episode will mark the fourth time On-Q has participated in Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Recognizing the value that On-Q products bring to the families of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the producers have expressed interest in using On-Q products in future builds.
