"It’s more than just filling potholes or doing a concrete repair, it’s about helping somebody with breast cancer, it’s about helping somebody be fed during the holidays or helping a veteran transition from military life to civilian life"
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) April 01, 2020
The community here in the Carolinas has supported RAM Pavement since the beginning and to show their appreciation, they take as many opportunities to give back whenever they can. For the past six years, they have had the honor of being sponsors for Go Jen Go’s major event, Run Jen Run.
The Go Jen Go foundation is a non profit organization that is dedicated to assisting women who are affected by breast cancer. Today, the Go Jen Go Foundation provides over $100,000 in financial support each year to women and men fighting breast cancer in the greater Charlotte area. They offer financial assistance so that survivors can focus on their fight and not worry about things like whether or not they can pay rent, put gas in their car, or buy gifts for their families at Christmas. Go Jen Go hosts two annual events, the Run Jen Run 5k and Festival in March, and Cheers Jen Cheers, a family friendly tailgate party in October.
RAM Pavement is well known in the community for wanting to give back and this encouraged the Go Jen Go foundation to offer them the opportunity to be one of the sponsors for their major event, Run Jen Run. Apart from being sponsors, some of their employees participate in the 5k run and others simply come out to show their support to everybody participating in the race. To add to the festivities, RAM Pavement also brings out a pink tractor trailer and paving machine so kids can take a look at them and enjoy. The ability to be a part of and support such an amazing cause means a lot to them and it completes part of their mission statement.
A lot of their employees, friends and families have all been impacted by somebody with breast cancer. They believe it’s more than just filling potholes or doing a concrete repair, it’s about helping somebody with breast cancer, it’s about helping somebody be fed during the holidays or helping a veteran transition from military life to civilian life. In 2020 they plan on participating in an upcoming turkey drive in November, they’ve participated in this year’s Run Jen Run event and they’ll be doing volunteer work with Veteran’s Bridge (which is a Charlotte-based nonprofit organization that bridges the gap between veterans and their community). The work with Veteran’s Bridge may range from helping with a park clean up to having a call center focused on checking in with veterans to see how the transition from military life to civilian life is going.
At RAM Pavement, they have fostered a culture of giving back. They know that they wouldn’t be here if not for the community in which they work. From the technicians who do the grunt work all the way to the founder and CEO. Their desire to give – be it through volunteering, donating, or simply praying is what sets them apart as human beings. They look forward to many more years of serving their community.
