Sun Life Financial Dunk For Diabetes

with one comment

In partnership with the Toronto Raptors, NBA Canada and Boys and Girls Club of Canada (BGCC), Sun Life Financial launched its Dunk For Diabetes Program.

Over the four weeks, participants in the BGCC take part in a program focused on healthy and active living. These weeks include fundamental exercises that instill healthy habits & physical activity, while providing awareness surrounding Type 2 Diabetes.

Participants are given the opportunity to win weekly prizes, based on the completed number of workouts and healthy habits.

Along with negotiating the partnerships, MKTG developed the strategy, and currently are planning and executing the program nationally, bringing it to life at 26 Boys and Girls Clubs, in 6 cities, across 5 provinces, reaching over 1,100 kids.

without comments

MKTG Riders: Matt Manning, Rein Dijkema, Michelle Berg, Kathryn Rambo, Samantha Hickey. MKTG Volunteers: Erica Calhoun, Danielle Walkerwicz, Kelly Kinas, Dani Kosinski

Over the weekend, a team of riders from MKTG Westport took to their bikes to raise money for cancer survivors of all ages through the organization MISSION (yourmission.org). Through the CT Challenge, the MKTG gearheads raised $2230 to help MISSION send kids to summer camp, aid in college tuition, run confidence-building adventure trips for young adults and supply young cancer survivors visits to Mission’s Training Center. You can learn more about the charity from the video below. Many thanks to our riders, and the numerous MKTG employees who came out to volunteer starting early in the am and extending into the evening celebration!

MKTG Chicago Cooks Up Kindness with MKTGood

with one comment

Last week MKTG Chicago sprung their community outreach plan into action taking part in the first monthly MKTGood Volunteer Outing. The Chicago team volunteered at the Inspiration Corporation, a Chicago-based organization that helps the homeless with programs that enable them to reach their fullest potential for self-sufficiency. Inspiration Cafe is one of their programs that allows the homeless community to enjoy a night of dining out and our team put their hospitality skills to good use. They helped dream up the menu, cook and serve delicious meals – a great start to giving back across the Windy City!
