Walkin' the Walk

MakingStridesSignAt the M it's important for us to support our team members and the community where we live and work. So when the American Cancer Society approached us about creating an M team for their annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk our answer was a resounding "Yes!"

Many of our team members have personal stories about their loved ones' fight against breast cancer. From our warehouse department to our food and beverage department, breast cancer has affected our team members and their families.

MakingStridesGroup2This past Saturday, Oct. 2, more than 150 of our team members gathered bright and early (at 7 am!) to walk the 5K in support of a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.

MakingStridesPinkWallLeading up to event, everyone quickly got on board and we began to build our "pink wall" in our team member dining room. Even our M Gas Station rallied to support the cause. Store manager Sam Ali took it upon himself and his team to collect $1 for the American Cancer Society.

More than 11 million Americans who have a history of cancer will celebrate another birthday this year. Through our team members' efforts, we raised more than $15,000 and we were in the Top 4 companies for fundraising. Great job team! We're proud to celebrate more birthdays.
