We're happy to add our name to the list of sponsors for A Midsummer Night's Run
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
Telax Hosted Call Center, North America’s leader in cloud-based contact center software, has officially signed on as a sponsor for A Midsummer Night’s Run, a charitable run scheduled for Saturday, August 18, 2012 in Toronto, Ontario. Proceeds of the Family 5K run will be donated to the SickKids Foundation.
Telax, who donates to the SickKids Foundation every Christmas in lieu of sending cards to their customers, has signed on to be a “Puck” sponsor, named after “that merry wandered of the night”, Puck, from Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The main races, either 30 or 15 kilometers, will take place in the eastern beaches and waterfront area of Toronto this summer.
A Midsummer Night's Run participants have raised over $165,000 for SickKids Foundation and Arthritis Research. Last year alone, participants raised over $65,000. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is one of the most common chronic childhood diseases, affecting 1 in 1000 children under the age of 16.
Telax provides their call center software to the SickKids Foudation and is pleased to be able to support the hospital outside of the normal business parameters, according to Telax’s Koray Parmaks. “We’re proud to support SickKids with our software, and we’re happy to add our name to the list of sponsors for A Midsummer Night’s Run and support them in a different way.”
