Leading accounts receivable management company TekCollect joined the Columbus Oktoberfest Four Miler Race, benefiting Charity Newsies this September.
The Columbus Ohio event, organized by M3S Sports, kicked off the 50th Annual Oktoberfest celebration, with proceeds assisting Charity Newsies, whose mission is to provide and empower school aged children with new clothing, shoes and backpacks. TekCollect sponsored a corporate team of 20 members, with a combination of runners and walkers. The fastest finishers on TekCollect’s team ran the race in 39:23. This is TekCollect’s second race event this year, along with the Race for the Cure in May.
“We love providing our staff with opportunities like the Oktoberfest Four Miler,” said Ron Douglas, Executive Vice President. “It allows us to support a great organization like Charity Newsies, while encouraging our team’s health and wellness, all wrapped into a team building event that everyone looks forward to. We thank M3S Sports for helping our team get organized, and Charity Newsies as well as the Columbus Oktoberfest for hosting us.”
The mission of Charity Newsies is that no child shall be kept out of school for lack of adequate clothing. In 2013-2014, $1.4 million was raised by Charity Newsies. 100% of those funds raised, every single penny, goes towards the purchase of new clothing for children in need.
