Dedication and commitment to the mission of Solutionreach is practiced and upheld every work day in the office, but Solutionaries are also passionate about many other worthy causes outside of the work world as well.
From the day the company was born, its mission has been pioneering innovative technology to establish simplicity and efficiency in the business world, but we didn’t stop there….
Solutionreach and its employees are also passionate about enhancing the lives of those in our community and around the world in as many ways as possible. The question consistently on the forefront of our minds is How can we make lives around us better?
Every year, the company chooses an organization to advocate, engages in a month-long effort to raise money for their cause, and then that effort culminates in what we call the Solutionrun. Employees and their family members choose a level of participation– be it a10K, 5k, half marathon, an open course or a kids fun run. Participants can bike, run, walk, skip, skate, or cartwheel, to reach the finish line. The total number of miles traveled between all participants is added up and a per mile donation is made to the designated charity.
During the 4 weeks leading up to the run, employees are divided into teams and “compete” in raising money with what we call the “Coin Wars.” This can get brutal. The goal of each team during the wars is to raise the most money in coins. Dollar bills of course are happily accepted and the 2 totals are added together at the end of the wars, however the total “dollar” amount gets subtracted from the coin total and the differences are then compared to determine the victorious team. During the wars, there are various fundraising activities that go on in the office to encourage donations, promote unity and to have fun! Always the highlight of the year!
This year, we chose to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS.) Take a quick look at the fun we had as we united to support a worthy cause. On September 13, 2014, employees, their friends and family members all pitched in to make it a great day!
As a result of our efforts, we were able to donate $31,386 to support the cause of finding a cure for blood cancer. Way to go Solutionaries! To thank us for our support, we were invited by the LLS to participate in a beautiful night of celebration, hope and gratitude.
