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 continues to focus on supporting AHeinz 57 Pet Rescue in Des Moines and Freedom Service Dogs in Denver for our Q3 charities. Throughout the quarter we have been able to talk with many employees about their pet adoption experiences and the positive impact it’s left on them. These organizations are making a huge difference in our furry friends’ lives.
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!
Businessolver interns delivered delight all over town this summer as they were tasked with giving back to the community in some way. Team 3 chose to work at St. Mary's Family Center and had a great time helping others.
Businessolver’s interns have been hard at work in and outside of the office this summer! As an intern you are given the opportunity to be part of the Interns Give Back Project, where everyone is divided into teams and tasked to find an organization they’re passionate about and volunteer with them. The next few posts we take a look at what the 2016 interns did to make a difference in our community! Here's a recap of Team 1's experience:
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.
Three years ago, I wrote an email to my boss notifying her that my wife and I would be spending a couple days in the hospital for our daughter, who had fallen ill. A couple days turned into a couple months, and a couple months turned into a half-year.
Riders from all over the world will dip their bicycle tires in the Mississippi River this weekend officially ending the week-long annual RAGBRAI ride. Businessolver participated in the event that showcases the state of Iowa by honoring an employee who recently passed away.
This past weekend pint-sized athletes from all over the Des Moines Metro tested their limits at the Hy-Vee Pinky Swear Triathlon. Businessolver was eager to jump on board as a 2016 sponsor of this fun and fit event where kids ages 6-18 run, bike, and swim on behalf of children battling cancer.
