This past weekend Businessolver had the honor of sponsoring an event that helped shed light on and raise money for Iowans impacted by blood cancers. The second annual Blood, Sweat & Beers 5k Run/Walk was held at the Iowa State Fairgrounds and 25 Businessolver employees participated.
Businessolver employees and their four-legged friends hit the trail this past weekend for a fun and healthy event at Raccoon River Park in Des Moines. The Businessdogger 5k was the brain child of the company’s Fun and Activities Committee, meant to be a fun and engaging way for employees to do a healthy activity with their dogs and family in an effort to benefit the Quarter 3 Charity: AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport. The event’s entrance fee was an item from the shelter’s wish list. Over 30 Businessolver employees brought much-needed shelter supplies and opened their wallets to raise over $400 in cash for the shelter that helps transport animals to foster care and no-kill shelters. Thank you to everyone who turned out to support an organization making a difference in the community. We’re already looking at doing the event again in 2017!
The Businessolver Denver crew was out and running last weekend at the annual Colfax Marathon. This 2 day, 7 race event provides runners several options for competition, all benefiting charity! Businessolver’s Denver racers, Mark Rehberger, Dawn Gries, Jarrod Darden, Jennifer Pike, and Patrick Lahart all ran 10 mile legs in the Marathon Relay benefiting Make-A Wish.
