Business Center Manager-Tim Walsh
District 57 joined the WalkMS event for the National MS Society in Tampa Bay!
On the Morning of March 18th, 23 associates and family members all got together in the early a.m. for a 5k walk to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. This event was brought to our attention by one of our Assistant Center Managers, Brad Hirtzel, out of our Brandon Center. Brad joined up with the WalkMS Event almost 10 years ago after his mother was diagnosed with MS. This made the event personal for the management team, that we were able to show support for one of our own. As a district, we were able to raise almost $400 in donations. As an event total, almost 1000 people joined in and raised $143,719 towards research!
Before the event was even finished, some of the associates were already asking if their was something we can do on a yearly basis... but the answer is no....this is something we will do bigger and better every year...on a yearly basis!!! Next year I'd like to see about becoming a sponsor for the event! That way we can bring our support, while still showing our community that FedEx Office can do more, print more, ship more...than they ever knew!
