Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, will be continuing its support of the Special Olympics by providing 15 runners for two legs of the Unified Relay Across America Torch Run as it passes through Provo, Utah, on July 2.
“The Special Olympics organization and its cause has and continues to be incredibly significant and meaningful for our company and our employees,” said Allen Miller, Career Step Vice President of People Strategy. “Our focus on employee wellness and community giving programs are closely tied to Special Olympics. I am always overwhelmed by the number of Career Step volunteers and their enthusiasm that I have seen at the events we have participated in over the past two years. We are very excited to be a part of the torch run because it truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for both our employees and the Special Olympics athletes.”
The Career Step runners will be running for two legs of the Unified Relay Across America, carrying the Flame of Hope on its way to the Special Olympics World Games being held in Los Angeles, July 25 through August 2. The Career Step runners will leave at 9 a.m. from the corner of 4800 North and University Avenue by the Riverwoods shopping center.
“We have participated in a number of Special Olympics events over the past few years, and I am always impressed with our team’s response and grateful for the opportunity to work with individuals who are so passionate about supporting causes like the Special Olympics,” said Steve Tober, Career Step President and CEO. “Our mission at Career Step revolves around making a difference—in the lives of our students, in the lives of our employees and in our community— our participation in the torch relay is another great opportunity to make a difference for these incredible athletes.”
Career Step has been partnered with Special Olympics for two years. The school has donated over $15,000 raised through the employee wellness initiative, provided volunteers for several Special Olympics events and hosted athletes during Career Step’s monthly Work Out Wednesday! events.
