Employees participated in TNT Kid Fitness and Gymnastics Trampoline-a-thon
Fargo, ND—Feb 16, 2015—Employees of Western Products and Affiliates were “flipping” over the outpouring of support during February’s Giving Hearts Day, an online fundraising event organized and sponsored by Dakota Medical Foundation. Western Products volunteered to jump on trampolines at TNT Kids Fitness and Gymnastics to help raise awareness for the annual Giving Hearts Day donation event that raises money for about 300 charities in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
Wearing matching shirts with hearts and the hashtag #GreatPlaceToWork, it’s clear to see the group from Western Products cares about giving back to their community, as well as having a good time together. The Trampoline-a-thon live streamed to the internet and non-jumpers at the office cheered on their co-workers. TNT Kid’s Fitness and Gymnastics attributes their successful fundraiser to the combination of the community’s involvement and the fun that jumping on a large trampoline brings.
Nearly $7 million was raised in just one day for causes like TNT who are looking to use the funds for modifications and equipment for children of all ages and abilities. Raising money to support local causes is a cornerstone of Western Products and Affiliated Companies’ culture, which places great importance on giving back to the communities that support them.
