You may have heard through one of our many posts about it, the Burst Biologics team made a run (er, walk?) for it for the Idaho Walk for Wishes fundraiser – and we had a blast! On a sunny Friday evening, several Burst Biologics team members and their friends gathered to walk in their superhero garb. Yes, there were capes. Yes, they were glorious. Along the way, we got to hear stories of wish kids enjoying their special days, see some encouraging signs for those struggling towards the end of the full distance, and even collect some pretty awesome stickers. Don’t worry, kids, adults and dogs alike were all able to collect stickers.
As a team (consisting of our employees, their families and friends, and our clients) we were able to raise so much that we were one of the top twenty of fundraising teams here in Boise! While we were proud of raising that much to begin with, we also managed to take home an award as the largest donation from a Non-Wish family – so now we’re super proud. And we’re also enjoying the thoughtful (and delicious) award (which we call breakfast) here at the office.
Now, we thought we did a great job of raising money for Make-A-Wish Idaho, but we didn’t imagine what a great job all of Idaho did! According to the Make-A-Wish Idaho
team, the amount of money they raised for this years walk will make them able to grant ten wishes to children here in the valley. Ten! That’s ten dreams coming true for children, and inspiring countless others around them. Idaho, we hope you’re proud – that’s quite the accomplishment.
Raising money is fun, but the walk for awareness was possibly even more fun. Aside from a fantastic kick-off party involving food trucks, radio D.J.’s spinning some fantastic tunes, and plenty of sunscreen being passed about, everyone had a great walk through 3 miles of beautiful Boise greenbelt. If you’ve never walked the Boise greenbelt you should give it a go – who knows, maybe we’ll see you at next year’s walk.
And that was our evening! A beautiful walk. Great friends. And a fantastic cause. Feeling left out? Don’t worry – the pages for donations are still live if you want to donate and become a part of the Burst Biologics team!
