DMS Moving Systems – Going the Distance in DetroitOctober 1, 2014 | 5:56 pm |
DMS Moving Systems, Atlas Van Lines, has been a partner with Move For Hunger for over two years. This fall they wanted to do a fun event that could raise monetary and food donations, while also spreading the word about Move For Hunger’s mission. The Detroit Free Press Tamer Bank Marathon was the perfect way to do that! One of the biggest races in Michigan, this unique race has an international portion for the half-marathon and marathon. Runners race over the Ambassador Bridge into Windsor, Canada and back into the U.S. through the tunnel. DMS will be taking Move For Hunger international for this event!
HOW ARE THEY FUNDRAISING?
DMS wanted to make the fundraiser fun for everyone! With company support, DMS made sure everyone could get involved, running or not. Employees not participating in the Detroit Marathon could “buy” an extra day off by donating to Move For Hunger or donating non-perishable items. By doing both a food drive and a fundraising campaign, they’re really going the distance for Move For Hunger. DMS is moving towards their goal, just check out their progress!
The DMS team is no doubt is excited for the event. Nick Morse, Debby Miodek, Sarah Cyrek and Brittney Shaffer will be participating in the Fitness 5k. For some, this is their first race and they are looking forward to representing Move For Hunger. Rob Cyrek and Alexandra Meyer will be doing the International Half Marathon; both experienced racers. Thanks to team leader Alexandra, DMS is leading the way to bring Move For Hunger to Detroit and our Canadian neighbors in Windsor!
