R2 WALKS AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Jacksonville, FL – April 2, 2012
On Saturday, March 31st, members of the Jacksonville headquarters and operations office came together for the third annual Hubbard House Setting the Pace for PeaceWalk at Ed Austin Regional Park.
The Hubbard House is a Jacksonville shelter designed specifically for victims of domestic violence and their children. The purpose ofSetting the Pace for Peace is twofold – to raise awareness about domestic violence and to raise money to continue the efforts of ending abuse in the Jacksonville community.
Through their efforts, the Hubbard House was able to raise $63,088 collectively. As a team, the R2 Jacksonville offices raised and donated $1,175. R2 associates who walked the 3.5 miles against domestic violence included Jeanette Adkins, Shannon Heaton, Pam Lambert, Corey Morris, Joe North, Kate Robbins and Jeff Schroeder.
“It is sad domestic violence is something that occurs on a daily basis, and it is important to make sure facilities like the Hubbard House have the resources they need to provide for people who are involved in it,” stated Corey Morris, National Sales Representative. “This event was a success for the Hubbard House and R2 Logistics. We raised a good sum of money to help the Hubbard House continue with their mission, and it gave the R2 team a chance to come together and get to know each other on a more personal level.”
Jeanette Adkins, Carrier Services Supervisor, also commented on the event by saying, “I personally see the necessity of getting myself and my son, Jackson, involved in the community to help mold him into a better little man. It was awesome to see how many people turned out to bring awareness and take a stand against domestic violence!”
