Renaissance Alliance Employees Put on Their Walking Shoes for Autism Speaks
Every year in May, Renaissance Alliance employees participate in a program started by a true rock star in our accounting department, Mariela.
The program, dubbed “Mariela’s Miles,” raises $1.00 for charity for every mile walked by our staff members during the month. In the past, we’ve donated the money we’ve raised to Veteran’s Associate Medical Center of West Roxbury, Massachusetts in loving memory of Mariela’s husband. This year, we’ve raised money for Autism Speaks, a remarkable organization dedicated to raising awareness and improving the lives of individuals with autism and related conditions.
We are pleased to announce that between our corporate office here in Wellesley, MA and the Bakker Insurance Agency in Avon, CT we walked a total of 1,062.12 miles, raising $1,062.12 for a great cause near and dear to our hearts!
Programs like Mariela’s Miles are an excellent way to encourage a healthy lifestyle and get employees up and moving while helping to support worthy causes that make the world a better place. The American Heart Association offers great tips on how to set up a workplace walking program, and we strongly encourage you to consider it!
Charity driven, employer-sponsored health initiatives are a great-win-win opportunity for your agency. Connect with a local charity and have your staff drum up some fitness challenges that your agency supports with a donation. Or if you’d prefer, you can connect with organized charity events.
