April 2, 2019 — This past weekend, over 300 of our employees, their family members and friends participated in the American Heart Association’s 2019 Capital Area Heart Walk.
Inspired by our founder and owner, Newton Thomas, and former president, Bruce Beard who both had heart attacks and heart surgery, our company had the largest number of participants in the walk, as well as the most dollars raised out of all the companies who took part in the fundraising event.
In total, we raised over $125,000 for this wonderful charity. Our company’s charitable foundation started the giving with a $50,000 donation and then our employees raised the rest.
This was a wonderful experience for our company. It turned out to be a great day for our employees to get together and have some fun, all while supporting a great cause.
