Encouraging Good Works, In and Out of the Office

By Penelope Larson | Category: Intouch Culture |

We take “giving back” seriously at Intouch. Whether it’s an office-wide activity like Philanthropy Week, or just one Intoucher participating in a race to raise awareness and funds for a life-altering condition, we welcome opportunities to share our good fortune with others.

One of the cool things about working at Intouch is that employees get a lot of support and encouragement when they participate in good-cause activities. Our Feet on the Ground (FOTG) program, which was started in 2016 as part of our year-long #ALLin initiative, makes it possible for Intouchers to participate in events they care about by sponsoring up to $50 of registration fees.

Recently, Intoucher Kayla Kroenlein – an art director in the KC office — took advantage of FOTG to participate in her third Heartland 30K, which is actually three 10K races that take place over the course of three consecutive Sundays. Each race supports a different cause:

  • The Plaza 10K was held Sunday, September 9, and was a fundraiser for Saint Luke’s Home Health and Hospice.
  • The Dot to Dot 10K, which happens September 16, aims to raise at least $50K for pediatric brain tumor research.
  • The Broadway Bridge Run, happening September 23, supports Special Olympics activities in Missouri.

“It’s awesome to be able to support charities doing something I love,” said Kayla.
