OnTrac held their first ever Relay For Life event at the OnTrac headquarters on Thursday, February 25, 2016. The premier regional parcel carrier celebrated their twenty fifth anniversary on the 25th with an event to raise awareness for cancer prevention. During the five-hour event, 181 registered participants walked a total of 377 miles around the exterior of the building.
OnTrac teamed up with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to host a Relay For Life event for OnTrac corporate employees. Teams were organized based on departments located at the company headquarters. At least one individual at any given time from each team was required to walk laps around the exterior of the building between the hours of 10 am to 3 pm. The Official Sponsor of Birthdays, ACS, joined OnTrac to celebrate their 25th anniversary along with informing OnTrac employees how they help those who are battling cancer, what they are doing to find a cure and provided information on cancer prevention. OnTrac employees will participate in thirty seven other Relay For Life events throughout the OnTrac service region during the year.
“I am proud to work for a company that puts such a strong emphasis on a cause that is near and dear to my heart,” says OnTrac Customer Care Representative and Breast Cancer Survivor Bridgette Perea. “Bringing awareness to the disease is half the battle.”
