5K & 10K Palisades Run to support pediatric hearing loss
On July 4, 2019, Exela’s #TeamSantaMonica came together for the Palisades Will Rogers™ 5K & 10K runs and ½-Mile Fun Run for Kids, an annual set of road races held in California’s Pacific Palisades. Besides having healthy fun, our goal was raising funds and awareness for Children’s House, a non-profit organization located in Serbia that supports children with hearing loss. In the weeks leading up to the event, Exela employees raised a total of $6,811, and Exela matched that sum, dollar for dollar, for a total of $13,622.
Relay for Life
Exela’s Kentucky employees raised $22,630 for the American Cancer Society (ACS) in connection with the Rockcastle, Kentucky ACS Relay for Life on June 19, 2019. This amount reflects $12,630 raised by the Exela Rators plus $10,000 of matching funds from Exela. Every single one of Exela’s 639 full-time employees located in our Mount Vernon and London, Kentucky workplaces contributed to the effort, whether by directly soliciting donations, selling raffle tickets, walking the track, or simply cheering for those walking.
