Paul Davis: Never Quit 5K & 10K

NEVER QUIT provides runners & walkers with the largest, most patriotic beach run at low tide on the hard packed sand.

NEVER QUIT is a family friendly event with a large U.S. Military presence that has an All-American patriotic, inspirational health and fitness message where only the very best provided.

Your entry directly supports a free run for deployed U.S. Armed Service members in war zone areas in the Middle East so they too can have a NEVER QUIT run. You will now have those defending your liberties abroad, running with you in spirit over there, while you run here in the free U.S.A.

Thank you for coming to the world’s largest beach run and America’s most patriotic run.

Paul Davis: Child Cancer Telethon

Once again, Paul Davis is partnering with WOKV for the Care-A-Thon held at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care in Jacksonville. All proceeds go to benefit the Child Cancer Fund.

This year, due to the pandemic, the Child Cancer Fund Careathon 2020 will be reformatted. It’s going to be a week-long campaign across Cox Media Group’s 8 radio stations.

A small remote phone bank will be operating to kick off the event, Monday 7/13 only, for half a day. This will be operated primarily by the CCF Board of Directors and staff. Paul Davis will have 3 volunteers accepting phone calls from 7am to noon Eastern.

The BIGGEST Need is virtual help! We hope you will tune in and share posts with your networks throughout the week on email and social media.

In addition to the phone bank Monday morning (5am to noon), there will be an online auction running from July 13th to 18th (ending at noon) at www.careathon20.givesmart.com. A preview of the online auction items will start July 10 at 5:00pm.

The Child Cancer Fund has not been able to hold a fundraising event yet in 2020 —  let’s work together to make this one a huge success.

FirstService: Walk with Us on May 24 for the 2020 Mandarin MS Virtual Walk

FirstService is a proud sponsor of the Mandarin MS Walk in Toronto. Our sponsorship supports research of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada to find a cure for MS and provide services to those living with MS in Toronto. Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, the Walk, which was originally scheduled for May 3, has been changed to a virtual event to be held on Sunday, May 24. This means everyone, wherever you are, is invited and encouraged to walk to honor those living with MS and the researchers who are working tirelessly to find a cure. 

How to Participate

  1. Mark your calendar for Sunday, May 24

  2. Record your steps using the device or app of your choosing — feel free to walk 5K (6,500 steps) or 10K (13,000 steps), or more!

  3. After the event, submit your name and steps taken here

  4. Take pictures and videos, and post them to your favorite social media sites using the hashtags #FirstServeOthers and #WeChallengeMS 

  5. Wear your brand with pride and HAVE FUN!

    After the Walk, we will share an event recap on our Social Purpose site and would love to include photos, so if your social media accounts are set to private, you will need to adjust the setting of your posts to public so we are able to locate them when we search the hashtag.

    If you would like to fundraise for MS research, you are welcome to join our team or start your own.

    Thank you!

Now, more than ever, it’s so important to stay healthy and active which is why we are launching this challenge – to encourage our teams to stay fit and have some fun. Physical activity can be a great stress reliever and even going for a short walk can help clear your mind so you can refocus.

    Using a specified point system, we are our challenging all FirstOnSite employees to “walk” all the way across Canada – 7,821 km to be exact! It doesn’t matter how you earn your kilometers, all that matters is you get active!

    • You can keep track of your activity by using a pedometer, activity tracker, or cell phone app.
    •  Submit your points by 11:59 pm Eastern each Thursday. (Submit points here)
    •  Share images on social and use the hashtags #GoTheDistanceCanada and #FirstOnSite.
    •  You are competing as a region as well as individually and we will provide weekly leaderboard updates on Fridays.

    Prizes:

    1. Regional winner – The first region to make it across Canada wins bragging rights!
    2. Individual winners – The person with the most activity points in each region will win a paid day off! (One winner per region, five winners total)
