Gut-busting efforts by Heritage Building Society staff to out-run their bosses have paid dividends for the Endeavour Foundation in Toowoomba.
Heritage CEO John Minz today handed over $1800 to the Endeavour Foundation thanks to the dedication – and perspiration – of staff members.
The employees raised the money through the annual “Blitz the Boss” competition held in conjunction with the Queensland Half Marathon at Doomben Racecourse.
Each year, Heritage’s Senior Executives challenge staff members to “blitz” them in the Half Marathon, 10km Run or 5km runs.
For every staff member that manages to out-run the boss, Heritage makes a contribution to the Endeavour Foundation, the not-for-profit organisation that provides a mix of vital services and support to assist around 3,000 Queenslanders living with disabilities.
Mr Minz said Heritage was very happy to be involved in an initiative that supported such a worthwhile cause.
“Heritage is much more than just a financial institution–and we strive to make a difference to the lives of everyone in the communities where we operate,” he said.
“The Endeavour Foundation do a wonderful job, and our staff also deserve congratulations for taking up the challenge to endure a small amount of physical hardship to help out such a deserving
Endeavour’s Deputy Chairman Mr Shane Charles, said the Foundation relied on the goodwill of
the community to be able to provide vital services to its clients across the State.
“Whether through one-off donations like this, through workplace giving or through long-term corporate partnership, Endeavour appreciates the vital support of big-hearted companies like Heritage and their staff and we thank them for their generosity,” Shane said.
“Without it, we would not be able to provide 1,360 people with employment opportunities, 596 with full-time accommodation; 350 with support to live in their own homes, 851 with respite care, 757 with lifestyle opportunities; and 295 with specialist learning and education.”
