2014 Rainbow Run as Colorful as Ever

2014 Rainbow Run as Colorful as Everctechad

(Crystal A. Proxmire, June 1, 2014)

The Annual Rainbow Run took place on May 31, with brightly powdered paint being flung about as participants walked and ran through the streets of Ferndale in support of various causes.  The Run is hosted by the Ferndale Area Chamber of Commerce and raises money for Affirmations, The Ferndale Community Foundation, and Upstander.

I decided to sponsor the paint station for a couple reasons. For starters I encourage my employees to have healthy habits, for instance a membership to the YMCA is part of the pay package if the employee wants its. I took up running last year so this will be the first Rainbow Run that I am participating in, it made sense that WaterWork would take part in sponsoring a hometown event that I am passionate about, plus its a chance for my company to hang out and do something as a team besides plumbing work. waterwork

“I picked orange because of the color my logo. Also the sponsorship benefits the chamber. When I bought my building on Hilton a few years ago, I messed up and didn’t properly research the zoning laws, the city initially didn’t want me here, I thought I was finished as I had spent most of my rainy day fund on purchasing it. If it wasn’t for Jennifer Jim Shaffer KELLER ad blackRoosenberg taking up my cause with the city I don’t know what would have happened, so I feel a deep sense of gratitude and the need to support her whenever she asks.”
