The American Cancer Society is a nationwide voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer. Established in 1913, the society is organized into six geographical regions of both medical and lay volunteers operating in more than 250 Regional offices throughout the United States. The Genie Company likes to support this organization and agrees with its values.
For the past nine years, The Genie Company along with its sister company Wayne Dalton has hosted a 5K Run/Walk to support this cause. Donations are collected from participants and then donated to The American Cancer Society. Our 5K has become so popular that the event continues to grow each year. This year, as things have changed majorly around the world, it was great to see our event get even bigger, just in a virtual way. Our Mt. Hope campus was able to host a socially distanced 5K Run/Walk and new to this year, one was also held at our Lewisville campus. These events held were done in addition to multiple employees participating in their own virtual Run/Walk and submitting their times and pictures after they completed it.
The Genie Company looks forward to many more years of this event. While the event continues to grow, so do the donations. Which means the true winner from this all is The American Cancer Society®.
We hope you enjoy some of the pictures captured the last couple of years from these events.
