At True, one of our Core Values is “We Give Back”. This has been a part of our culture from day one and has grown right alongside our company. Our commitment to giving back is so strong that each year we create a unique giving theme which allows us to provide numerous unique and fun ways to support the organizations that mean the most to us.
Our theme for 2021 has been “True Supports Local”. The goal for this year is to support those organizations and causes local to our Teams during what has been in incredibly challenging time. We are lucky to have an amazing group of True Team Members who believe just as strongly in the importance of giving back, which makes every single giving theme and event a success.
Recently, we held our 2nd annual virtual 5K race in support of our official “True Charity”, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. The race took place during Labor Day Weekend, and the task was simple: walk or run, hike or bike, in your own time, at your own pace, in your own space.
While our event was free to participate in, we challenged our Team Members to raise “$5K through our 5K” for RMHC-CNI. We were overwhelmed, though not surprised, by the results.
In total, we had over 87 participants racing in 10 different states! We had walkers, joggers, runners, hikers, bikers, and even kayakers join in for the fun!
Most importantly, we not only met, but exceeded our fundraising goal. We reached 113% of our goal for a total of $5,685 for RMHC-CNI. We are so grateful to our True Team Members, family, and friends for coming together, even virtually, for such a great cause. We are grateful for their participation, proud of their dedication, and humbled by their generosity.
Despite having to host a virtual event and remain apart, we are so happy to be able to raise money to help families get better together!
