At NorthStar, we are always looking for ways to get involved in the community! We sit down as an organization every quarter to brainstorm ideas of ways we can give back. We especially love when employees ask to get involved in a charity that they have a personal connection with. Such was the case with The Run to Walk 5k, a part of the Now I Can Foundation, was brought to our attention.
One of our employees (the incredible Melanie) is a close family-friend of the Clegg family who has a son (Jordan) battling Cystic Fibrosis. Every year, Melanie has joined the “Clegg’s for a Cure” team and walked in a race dedicated to Jordan to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis drug and therapy research. This year, she invited our NorthStar family to take part. In typical fashion, we showed up wearing loud, bright orange shirts (Jordan’s favorite color) to show our support! Not only did we have a great time, but we met some incredible people and were able to raise quite a bit of money to donate to the cause. Thanks for letting us be part of this day!
