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.
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.
This past Sunday, Team Businessolver participated in Chicago, Illinois’ Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Some team members brought their mothers in celebration of Mother’s Day. This was our fifth Komen race and each event has proven to be a moving and humbling experience. Ashley DiLaura, Businessolver Senior Sales Consultant served as Team Captain in Chicago and was beyond excited to help race to stamp out breast cancer:
Juvenile or Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is a life-altering disease. It’s serious and affects more than just the person diagnosed. As Businessolver continues to support JDRF in Q2, we want to share Lauren Levis’ story. Lauren is a Professional Development Program Representative and shares how she discovered she has T1D.“May 9
Imagine giving yourself a shot two times a day to regulate your insulin level and pricking your finger several times a day to get a drop of blood to check your sugar levels. If you don’t, your blood sugar level could soar so high or so low that you become lethargic, or if you’re asleep, you can’t wake yourself up. It’s called a Diabetic Coma, and this is a scary reality for millions of Americans, mostly adults, living with Juvenile or type 1 diabetes (T1D).
