Walking Club Returns!

It’s hard to believe we are about to start season 7 of the Walking Club! This year, our group will be supporting the PADS Homeless Shelter in Dixon. Our donation will be used to help them finish up their 2nd location in Dixon, which will double their capacity to 32 people and will give them separate shelters for women (and children) and men. While they are finishing up renovations on the inside, there is still plenty of work to be done to the outside of the 124-year-old house on Everett Street, and money raised from this group will go a long way. Our first event will be the Make-A-Wish 5K on May 18th in Dixon. We will participate in 6 local 5k’s this year, and for every em- ployee that walks or runs, Crest will put $20 into a fund to be donated to PADS Homeless Shelter at the end of the season. We’ve accomplished a lot over the last 6 years as a group and look forward to what this season has to bring! Below are some facts that sum up the last 6 years: • 39 5K’s • $46,160 donated as a team to local charities • 5416 total miles walked/ran by 1747 participants (That is roughly the same as walking from coast to coast of the United States 2 times!) • 275 employees have participated • 10 Corporate Challenge wins by our runners, which means $10,000 toward our total donated as a team • 1 costume contest winner 2019 Walking Club Schedule:
