Strides for Success

Previously, in our Pink Out post, we mentioned our inaugural efforts to give back to the community in big ways. The Atlanta Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk was this past weekend and we couldn’t have had more fun. The air of excitement rippling through the crowd of more than 14,000 people had our adrenaline pumping and our smiles popping. It was such a pleasure to be at the grande finale of our combined efforts–Atlanta raised more than one million dollars toward the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

As a company,  our numbers were impressive for our first time in the game. Between two offices (Atlanta, GA and Hamilton, NJ), and around 80 full-time employees, we raised over $4,000. Our top two fundraisers garnered $760 and $610 respectively, and over half of our team raised in excess of $100 each. The grande prize you ask? A free vacation day. I think it’s fitting after the time committed to this volunteer cause. For our fundraising ideas and to post ones of your own, please visit our Pink Out post.

Please enjoy some snapshots of the fun.
