Making a Splash (or SPLAT!) in the Fight Against Alzheimer's

Posted by Barb Turney on Jul 12, 2023 8:33:52 AM

Here at MetrumRG, in addition to our commitment to defeating disease through our day-to-day work, we also strive to make a tangible difference through a variety of community outreach activities. Most recently, we organized a special fundraising event for The Longest Day, the Alzheimer's Association's annual fundraising event.

Screenshot 2023-07-05 at 10.43.19 AMThe Longest Day takes place on the summer solstice (the day with the most light) and it is dedicated to honoring the fight of those affected by Alzheimer's disease, the darkness of which they face every day. This event encourages participants from across the globe to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through an activity of their choice. You can learn more about it here.

We wanted to engage our employees in a fun, meaningful way to  build camaraderie and also raise awareness and funds for this essential cause. To achieve this, we brought in a fun twist with a whipped cream pie throwing contest! Yes, you read that right. Employees had the opportunity to donate funds for the chance to aim a pie at a member of our leadership team. The event took place at our company summer picnic in June and needless to say, it was a hit!

Our team’s incredible spirit of giving and fun-loving nature helped us raise over $800 in support of the Alzheimer's Association’s invaluable work. These funds will contribute to advancing Alzheimer's care, support, and research.

The laughter, excitement, and camaraderie during our pie-throwing fundraiser embodied our vibrant culture here at MetrumRG. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our employees for their enthusiastic participation and generous contributions, which made the event such a huge success.

We are also grateful to the Alzheimer's Association for the remarkable work they do, and for giving us the opportunity to be part of this fight. We look forward to many more opportunities to engage, raise awareness, and make a difference.
