Guest Blog Post: Yoga for Hope

Posted on Aug 30, 2016 10:34:55 AM

Today’s blog post is written by OnTrac guest blogger Corporate Account Manager Nina Hegyi. Nina joins us to share her story about Yoga for Hope, which took place Saturday, August 13th, 2016 at Petco Park in San Diego, California. OnTrac participated this year with a donation to the City of Hope. To read about past Yoga for Hope events, please click here for 2015, and here and here for 2014.

It fills me with both elation and amazement that August 13th was my sixth Anniversary participating in Yoga for Hope and supporting the wonderful work that is done at the City of Hope.


My passion for finding a cure for cancer and supporting the efforts of treatment comes from losing my mother to leukemia when I was young. The seed of volunteering was planted by my father. Shortly after we lost her, my father got my brothers and I involved in volunteering to empower us. It has now become a legacy to both my parents. It also fills my heart with joy that my son, Derek, shares this passion and that the legacy my father started is continuing with him. Unfortunately, I am not alone. There are still way too many children who have grown up without their moms, dads, and loved ones because they lost their battle to cancer. My personal battle continues.

As long as there is a cause that will help to cure cancer you can count on me to help. I’m happy beyond words that my OnTrac family has also been there with me supporting this battle. It started about 17 years ago when OnTrac, known as California Overnight back then, embraced what I was doing in San Diego with the American Cancer Society (ACS) Daffodil Days. For three consecutive years during the month of March, so many people at OnTrac were donating their time to deliver daffodils, which freed up the good people at ACS in order for them to generate more donations, and generate donations we did. I was honored by the ACS in San Diego for what I started. During their introduction, they said that our help generated over $500,000 statewide.

20160813_103054_resized.jpgI was asked to join the Women's Council for the City of Hope in San Diego 10 years ago. In addition, I was also part of the group who started Yoga for Hope six years ago. Now, Yoga for Hope is a major fundraiser for the City of Hope and has grown to include three other cities. I, along with many others, look forward to the day there is a cure. With the work being done at the City of Hope that day is hopefully coming soon. However, we are not there yet. That is why once again, and following in the five years prior, I was part of Yoga for Hope San Diego. My OnTrac family was there to count on for support once again so that the City of Hope can continue to conduct more research, provide more treatments and encourage more people to go from hopeless to hopeful. To ensure the success of all the wonderful work done by the City of Hope, you can still donate here.

The one lesson I have learned from volunteering is that you don't have to be a big donor to make a difference. Small donations add up to make many differences. Those differences add up to many new treatments and advancements to finding a cure so that children don't have to know what it is like to grow up without a Mom. Until that day comes, the legacy to my parents will continue and I know that my OnTrac family will be right there to help!

OnTrac Delivers Hope at Yoga for Hope

Posted on Jul 1, 2014 12:45:00 PM

OnTrac supports City of Hope at Fourth Annual Yoga for Hope

If you ask people who have achieved any kind of success who their biggest inspiration was, or who has had the most profound influence when it came to success in their life, you might find a majority would say it was their mother.   

For OnTrac Corporate Account Manager Nina Hegyi, that answer is always bittersweet.

“I lost my Mom when I was young and was robbed of so many lessons and too many years of celebrating her,” she said. “So, that’s the bitter part.”

But here is the sweet part – in that time, Hegyi’s mom was able to pass on some knowledge.

“She did a lot in the little time she had,” Hegyi said. “Even though my Mom did not have a long time to download all her knowledge to me she did pass on a wealth of wisdom that has helped me in so many ways to become successful.”

One of those is her willingness to volunteer, to give back and to continue fighting for the cure to a disease that took her mother too soon.

For the last four years, the City of Hope has hosted Yoga for Hope, an event that brings together yoga beginners and experts to raise awareness of the benefits of yoga for patients with life-threatening illnesses.

This year, Hegyi, and team Delivering Hope, will come together to raise money and participate in the Yoga for Hope event held on June 7 at Petco Park in San Diego.

“For us, this is personal,” she said. “And for so many others like us, it’s personal too. You just feel powerless when a loved one gets a horrible disease. You feel powerless and hopeless when they are taken away. And they are always taken away too soon.”

Hegyi has been on the Women’s Council for City of Hope for 10 years and the OnTrac team, Delivering Hope, will be fundraising in the area and donating funds to support the event.

OnTrac Material Handling Improves Efficiency in Southern California

Posted on Jun 25, 2013 1:06:00 PM

As a part of OnTrac’s continued effort to improve the quality and efficiency of our customer’s shipping experience, the company has launched an initiative that will include installing material handling systems in all of our facilities and expanded operations in its San Diego facility.

The facility, located at 7077 Consolidated Way #G, San Diego, CA. 92121, increased more than 40,000 square feet from its previous location. The building has 18 dock doors positioned for both inbound and out bound loads that will be picking up and delivering in the San Diego area.

With the expanded San Diego location, OnTrac will be adding additional sorters, projects and increase the number of service providers to the San Diego area.

As a compliment to its effort to increase the operation in San Diego, OnTrac installed a material handling system. This decision enables OnTrac to improve the customer experience and reduce the number of handles per package.
