I’ve been drawn to attempt this event for years and I’ve felt an equal pull to help with ING’s Chances for Children program. I’m so proud to work in a corporate culture that values giving back to the world. This is one of many things that sets ING apart and creates such a positive global work environment. Through my job I’ve been fortunate to experience the immense power, benefit, and fulfillment that global collaboration brings. It’s inspiring to see what can be accomplished when people from all parts of the world with different cultures, languages, and backgrounds join together in a positive spirit.
I’m hopeful that the ingredients of this athletic pursuit, ING’s Chances for Children program and my global network will come together in a perfect recipe to raise awareness and funds to provide an education to impoverished children.
