OnTrac teamed up with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to host their second annual Relay For Life event. The relay took place at the corporate office in Chandler, Arizona on February 23, 2017. A total of 229 OnTrac employees registered for the event to raise awareness for cancer prevention. During this four-hour event 540 laps around the Continuum Business Park were completed, totaling in 356.40 miles.


To spark some friendly competition, the employees were divided into 21 teams of no more than 15 individuals per team. The winning team walked a total of 97 laps, and each individual won a Relay For Life souvenir cup from the American Cancer Society.  ACS also attended the event and joined in on the fun to help spread the word on cancer prevention. The American Cancer Society is actively working to create more birthdays by encouraging prevention, providing support and conducting lifesaving research.


"As one of the many OnTrac employees that is a cancer survivor, it is truly an uplifting event to see the entire OnTrac Corporate office come together the way that they do for the Relay For Life event,” says OnTrac Chief Administrative Officer Rick Chase. “Most families have been affected by some form of cancer, and the collective support shown by our corporate office team during the Relay For Life event speaks volumes about the thoughtful nature of our friends and fellow employees.”


On March 1, OnTrac announced via press release that the Chandler, Arizona corporate office raised $540 for the American Cancer Society. RouteSmart Technologies Vice President of Sales and Marketing Chris Walz read the press release and decided to take part in the fundraising. RouteSmart graciously met OnTrac’s donation to ACS bringing the total donation to $1080.
