In 2016, TrialCard continued its involvement in both local and national charities, contributing to over 30 different altruistic initiatives throughout the year. Moreover, each initiative that TrialCard supports stems from an employee being directly involved in the cause. The company believes strongly that its success, both in business and in its social responsibility to do good for the community, is directly attributable to the quality of people it hires and retains.
TrialCard’s charitable endeavors in 2016 included, among several others:
- Supporting mission trips
- National Multiple Sclerosis Society MS-150 bike ride
- Mission 22 Push-up Challenge in support of our nation’s veterans
- March of Dimes Walk for Babies
- Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End ALZ
- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) One Walk
- Relay for Life
- PLM Families Together
Additionally, TrialCard employees raised over $4,000 for the Movember Foundation in support of men’s health awareness this year – a mark that ranked in the top 500 groups in the entire United States.
TrialCard is also nearing its two-year sponsorship anniversary with the Ronald McDonald House of Durham and Wake Counties (NC). In a testament to the tremendous generosity of TrialCard employees, the company has purchased groceries and its employees have prepared homemade meals for the families staying at the house twice per month throughout the partnership. During the holidays, TrialCard has also donated gifts, and this year, all requests were fulfilled within the first week of the campaign and were delivered to the recipients by a TrialCard employee dressed as Santa Claus.
“Our people are the foundation of our culture and our success,” said TrialCard President and CEO Mark Bouck. “We’re extremely fortunate to have so many talented and selfless individuals on our team and are proud that those qualities extend beyond the office to help make our community and our world a better place.”
