Raising Nearly $70k for Special Olympics—now that’s Gold Medal Worthy

Giving back—and bringing the community together—is really important to Verve team members.

Giving back—and bringing the community together—is really important to Verve team members. In fact, it’s one of our seven guiding principles. That’s why we were proud to sponsor a glow station at the 2017 Run With The Cops event in Oshkosh on October 5.

 

Run With The Cops is an evening 5K run/walk organized by Special Olympics of Wisconsin and police agencies from the Fox Valley region to raise funds for Special Olympics athletes. The course went through the UW Oshkosh campus and was lit up with police vehicles and glow stations—including one with our orange glow sticks.

 

We were proud to be part of an event that has such a positive impact on the community. It was so much fun to see nearly 900 runners and walkers hit the course to raise $67,000 for Special Olympics!
