October is an important month for many. This month is dedicated to bringing awareness on how to reduce breast cancer risk and raising money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease.
In addition to making our social pages pink to show support, Holloway is excited to raise awareness by sponsoring Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in their first ever walk in Northern Miami Valley this year located here in Sidney, Ohio! The 5k is a fun event for a great cause. Here are some ways we are raising money around Holloway for the American Cancer Society.
- Holloway for Hope Team – We have created a team for the 5k that takes place on October 25th. Participants can register here to walk the 3 mile course that morning or donate toward the team.
- Holloway for Hope Shirts – For those who want to show their support, we designed shirts to sell to employees. Half of the proceeds from the shirts will be donated to Making Strides.
- Along with shirts, we have pink and purple paracord bracelets and key chains made by one of our employees for sale. All proceeds from these will be donated.
- Battle of the Buildings/Coin War – Between our two buildings (corporate and distribution center) there is a battle…of coins! We have jars set up at the buildings and the goal is to collect the most change. Coins get you points while paper bills lose you points. Bills can be deposited in the “opponents” jar to lose them points. All of this money will go to Making Strides.
Our goal was to raise $1,000 by the 25th and we are on track! Holloway was also asked to participate in “Pinktober” around Sidney. Local businesses were asked to decorate their store fronts or businesses with pink. Here’s what you see when walking into our corporate building.
This is such a great movement to be apart of and I’m excited to be involved. Breast cancer affects so many lives including those here at Holloway. We have survivors and fighters among our employees right now. Here’s to spreading Hope to those we love.
