On Sunday, September 6th, At Your Service Staffing had the pleasure of participating in the 2014 Four Seasons Run of Hope. The company's team partnered the local office's staff members with members of AYS management, including Lauren Hinchey and Karen Craig of At Your Service Boston, Valerie Lowe of the AYS Accounting Department and Mark Casaburi, the Founder and President of At Your Service Staffing.
Taking place on Boston's picturesque Esplanade, the Run of Hope is an annual 5K race and 2K walk that raises funds for pediatric cancer care and research at the MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). This year's race raised over $106,000, setting a new record for the annual event. The family fun 5K featured a pancake breakfast courtesy of Four Seasons Boston's skilled chefs, a raffle featuring a New England Patriots jersey signed by star tight end Rob Gronkowski and a Kids Dash to kick off the festivities! To date, Boston's Run of Hope has raised over one million dollars for MassGeneral Hospital for Children. Across the country, over 500 million dollars has been raised to benefit local cancer research organizations.
The Four Seasons Run of Hope is the second in a series of races the company plans on participating in this year. Due to the success of the company's sponsorship of the Annual Cystic Fibrosis Run in Sayville, NY, At Your Service Staffing has established its Running with Reason series as a way to give back to the communities it operates in across the country. The third race in the series, Tunnel to Towers 5K Run and Walk, takes place in New York City on September 28, 2014. If your organization has a 5K run or walk that you think AYS should be a part of, please contact Karen Craig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
