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!
We’re just over a month into Q3 and our charity focus has been kicking into high gear! The charities of choice we have been supporting include two main organizations that help furry friends live better lives.
Throughout Quarter 3 this year, Businessolver and its employees are supporting dog rescue and two organizations making a difference in Des Moines and Denver – AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Freedom Service Dogs. Today’s Solver Story comes from Andrew Foley, Businessolver Client Relationship Specialist. Andrew shares his personal dog rescue story and encourages others to foster dogs as a way to help the community and furry friends.
It’s Q3 and that means Businessolver and its employees are supporting a new charity of choice. Employees will be engaging all quarter with two local organizations making a difference in Des Moines and Denver through fun activities, personal stories, and meaningful fundraisers.
