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.
The temperature was low but spirits were high as thousands walked or ran at the JDRF One Walk this past weekend at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. As most people know, when you’re supporting a cause close to your heart, temperature doesn’t matter. That was exactly the case as a team of almost 50 Businessolver employees worked to turn Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) into Type None.
Businessolver is a supporter of Children’s Cancer Connection (CCC) and a 2016 event sponsor for Couture for a Cause. CCC is an organization making a difference in the lives of children and families living with childhood cancer. They provide support, summer camp and opportunities for kids to simply be kids and not worry about their disease.
As Businessolver wraps up charitable activities for the first quarter of the year, we wanted to share one last Solver Story from Taylor Tufte, Professional Development Program Representative:
“When I was four years old I was blessed with the best Christmas present a girl could ask for, a 10-pound baby sister named Brooke. A couple of months later my parents realized something was off. She wasn’t able to hold her head up, sit up, or open her right hand. After many doctors visits they were able to diagnose her with cerebral palsy. As an unborn baby she had a mini stroke, which caused bleeding in her brain that affected her both mentally and physically. We were told she wouldn’t be able to walk or function as a normal person in society.
Businessolver and its employees have been working in various ways to support Special Olympics during Quarter 1 of 2016. Special Olympics is an organization that helps those with intellectual disabilities fight inactivity and intolerance through the joy of sport.
Sydney Asher, Businessolver Client Relationship Manager, has a special place in her heart for this organization and wants to help get the word out and encourage others to support this organization and volunteer. Here’s her story:
How does a technology company with a huge heart celebrate National Pi Day? By giving out pizza pie to our hungry friends! We had so much fun performing Random Acts of Kindness last month that we’re continuing with the theme and celebrating by buying pizza pie on Pi Day. If you’re unsure what Pi Day is, refer to a number you learned in school: 3.14.
