Last week Don and Angela, a couple of our FWM staff, were up in Chicago to meet with some of our outstanding corporate ambassadors, United Stationers. While they were there United Stationers became a member of Team Mobility–anyone who participates in an athletic event for Free Wheelchair Mission–and held a walkathon: 6,394 steps to help raise awareness and funds for Free Wheelchair Mission and global issues surrounding mobility.
Georgeann Ratko, seen above with walkathon participants, arranged the event and the United Stationers employees came out in full-force as upwards of 150 people participated. Although final numbers are still coming in, so far more than 185 wheelchairs have been raised as a result of the fundraiser!
We want to thank Georgeann for organizing the event as well as Cody Phipps, President & CEO and Tim Connolly, President – Operations and Logistics Services for their support. A huge debt of gratitude is owed to United Stationers and its employees for their continued support of Free Wheelchair Mission. To all of you: thank you!
