We’re so proud of our organizational administrator, Manissha, for her participation in the recent Starry Night 8.5k walk/run event. It’s fantastic when people recognize a problem and get involved to be part of the solution that sparks change. This 8.5k walk/run, held annually, supports the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and their efforts to help children who are fighting one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer.
Over 28,000 kids throughout the United States are looking to us, the adults, to help them fight this terrible disease. If we don’t step up and become part of the solution, who’s left to help them? With the help of some generous donors pledging on Manissha’s behalf, she was able to raise over $300 for the cause.

Throughout the course of doing business, many employees and managers get involved in charity events and philanthropic efforts to better the lives of others. We believe that by reaching out and helping those who aren’t in a position to help themselves, we not only help those people, but we also help ourselves in the process. We discover our true potential to help change the world for the better.
