"Team PRIDE - Powered by Purpose" is a team to have fun, get fit, and raise funds to expand job opportunities for people with disabilities.
I love PRIDE's mission and found this to be a great opportunity to raise money for it and run a 10k - Please help. :-)
100% of funds raised by Team PRIDE will go directly to programs and services that benefit people with disabilities through job creation, employment preparation and placement, and employment support services. By helping people with disabilities secure and succeed in employment, you’re contributing not only to their ability to earn an income, but also to their independence and sense of self-worth.
Here are just a few examples of the many lives that are changed by the services and supports offered by PRIDE Industries thanks to the support of donors like you:
“PRIDE provides me with challenging work but always makes sure I’m comfortable in my position. I trust PRIDE and they have taught me to do what I want to do.” - Faith
“I’ve been employed at PRIDE for 13 years and have overcome a lot in my life since I’ve been here. PRIDE has helped me to develop both professionally and personally and I like that PRIDE places me in jobs where I can be me. PRIDE has given me the skills, income and confidence to pursue living independently.” - James
“PRIDE offers me much more support than I’ve had at other jobs. At first I was overwhelmed when I started, but they trained me to be successful. Working at PRIDE makes me feel great and I’m very proud of myself.” - Jennifer
“This is my first job and it’s opened my mind up to the possibilities of what I can accomplish. The money I earn helps me and my family, but the fact that I earned it gives me the greatest sense of pride.” - Joseph
“When I first started at PRIDE I was scared I wouldn’t be successful. I received the training and support I needed to do my job and PRIDE has made my success a priority. I like working with other people with disabilities because everybody is an important member of the team.” - Rhonda
“I enjoy the challenges that new jobs present me with. I like earning the money, but I love knowing how to do twice as many things as when I started.” – William
Together, we’re changing lives – one job at a time.
