MACRO.CCS Team Members Get Fit & Raise Money for CharityMay 14th, 2013, 0 Comments
MACRO.CCS is proud to sponsor the involvement of our employees in their charitable endeavors and encourage all our team members to get involved in the community in any way they can. Here’s a glimpse at some of the charitable events MACRO.CCS employees will be involved in this spring:
Most of you probably don’t know this, but Bellevue-office team member Kevin Reiman is an ace on the soccer field. Before moving into the world of technology and recruitment, Kevin spent time playing professionally with the Real Salt Lake Team out of Utah, and later as an assistant coach at USMC. While his day-to-day work life now focuses on meeting top tier IT support and infrastructure talent, he still finds ways to stay involved in the Soccer world.
Case in point, his involvement in next weekend’s Cap Hill Soccer Jam.
The Cap Hill Soccer Jam is a 4×4 street soccer tournament that uses the power of soccer to combat homelessness across the United States. All proceeds of the tournament go to Street Soccer USA, which views homelessness as a breakdown in community, and looks at soccer as a way promote a positive and supportive atmosphere to rebuild those otherwise lost community connections. Money raised at this event will provide coverage for registration fee’s, travel, and equipment needs for homeless soccer players to be a part of city-wide teams/leagues, learn essential life skills, and be exposed to rehabilitation programs throughout Seattle.

Down in our Los Angeles office, our California Account Manager, Kelsey Searles, will be participating in Pedal on the Pier , on June 2nd, with her team Tour de Philanthropolis. At this event, teams share a stationery bike posted up on the Santa Monica Pier, and take turns pedaling a total of 100 miles in 5 hours (can you say bruised bums?!)
Teams raise money to reserve their bikes, and all funds raised by the teams will benefit the Harold Robinson Foundation. This organization helps keep inner-city kids off the streets during the summers by sending them off to summer camps, where they can obtain value life experiences around making new friends, team building, risk-taking, creativity, not to mentioned – just having a good, safe, time.
