I am excited to be running my very first 5K in April. This is my next "step" in improving my health while raising money for PRIDE's mission!
PRIDE's mission is something I am passionate about supporting and the reason I went to work for them over 3 years ago. Many people may not be aware of this, but I was very close to becoming physically disabled myself. I was lucky to have the medical treatment necessary to avoid paralysis, and I am grateful every day for the opportunities I have been blessed with. Becoming a member of Team PRIDE and raising money for the foundation while improving my own health is something I am proud to be able to do, and your support is greatly appreciated!
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:
“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
“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.
