Listen Technologies Corporation wraps up fundraising and training efforts on its Salt Lake City Corporate Challenge.Listen Technologies’ partnership with Active.com ensured a successful fitness and philanthropic campaign for The Sandy Club: A Safe Place for Boys and Girls.
The Listen Team raised just over $5,000 for the club through combined efforts of reaching out to family and friends asking for donations and hosting community events. Training and fundraising for the Listen Corporate Challenge kicked off at the beginning of December. Over several months employees trained for the Salt Lake City marathon, half marathon and 5K races. In addition to the focus on fitness, corporate challenge participants organized fundraising activities to reach the $5,000 mark. Listen is pleased to recognize the Corporate Challenge Team for its fundraising success.
