One of our favorite things to do at CardConnect is volunteer. In fact, we’ve dedicated an entire program to making sure we all do our part to give back to local charities and non-profits. It’s called CardConnections. Everyone on our team is given four workday hours per month to volunteer at a location (or locations) of their choosing.
Already this spring, we’re thinking about the ways we can get involved, particularly outdoors. At the top of our minds is one of our favorite events hosted by an organization called Crush Childhood Cancer. They’re a group dedicated to financially and emotionally supporting families with children who are battling cancer. They are 100% volunteer-run and all proceeds go to the families they support.
Every year they host an annual 5K Competitive Run, 1-Mile Family Fun Walk and Family Fun Fair. This year the activities will be held on Saturday, May 6 and for anyone interested in joining, pre-registration is open right now.
5K Competitive Run
This is an officially timed race, but runners of all levels are welcome. Each runner is encouraged to collect donations ahead of the race, in addition to paying the required entry fee of $30 for pre-registration / $35 for day-of registration.
1-Mile Family Fun Walk
This activity is for the whole family to enjoy and even includes a kids’ obstacle course. The cost is $40 per family.
Family Fun Fair
The fair takes place after the run and walk, where you can meet the children battling cancer and their families. We hear there will be live music and a raffle!
If you’re interested in volunteering to help out with the day-of activities, you can do that too!
To help support their online donations, we’ve also added CardPointe HPP to their website, a page that allows them to easily and securely accept credit card payments. We encourage you to visit the page and make a donation, if you can!
And while we’re on the topic, check out a few of the others programs we’re getting involved with. We always love to see additional help!
