Plexus Worldwide Unified Local Business Community to Step Up for Children
3rd Annual Charity Walk Raised $25,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital Heart Center
Scottsdale, Ariz. (November 20, 2019) – Plexus Worldwide® (Plexus), a leading direct-selling health and wellness company, unified hundreds of walkers and nearly two dozen Phoenix area businesses to raise money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. On November 12, the Scottsdale company sponsored the 3rd annual Pima Center Community Walk, raising $25,000 for the Phoenix Children’s Heart Center.
Plexus’ Philanthropy team engaged 700 walkers who participated in a 1-mile or 2-mile route through the Pima Center business park. Plexus also generated the support of many neighboring companies including Medieval Times, Natural Partners Fullscript™, V.I.P. Mortgage and Firetrace™ and iMemories.
“As an on-going partner with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, we were proud to see so many of our neighbors in the Pima Center and Talking Stick Entertainment District join our charity walk for such an important campaign,” said Tarl Robinson, Founder and CEO of Plexus. “Bringing together businesses for such a great cause has helped us get to know our neighbors and form new relationships that create a better community for everyone.”
“Phoenix Children’s Hospital provides hope, healing and the best healthcare for sick kids and their families, and we are honored to see so many local businesses come together to help our kids,” said Patty Barney with Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
“Plexus has been giving back to charitable organizations in our local community for years and it’s wonderful to see other companies, large and small, join us to make an even bigger impact on the lives of local families when they need it most,” said Mary Ann Luciano, VP of Philanthropy at Plexus.
The Salt River Police Department and Salt River Fire Department were on hand to ensure the safety of all walkers as well as Plex, the police dog that is part of the Salt River Police Department K9 unit.
