ProSearch Strategies employees (“ProSearchers”) recently embarked on a fundraising campaign in support of APWC, which raised over $10,000 in only a few weeks. In this dynamic campaign, the main focus was to fundraise through the Hollywood Half Marathon and 5K/10. A Committee consisting of Julia Hasenzahl, Trevor Allen, David Castaneda, Janet Polley, Damien Young, Erika Lara and Mit Patel gathered almost 50% ProSearch employees to “run for shelter” last Saturday, and rallied the support of their partners, friends and families to sponsor them and donate to APWC. To encourage donations, ProSearchers formed competitive teams to see which team could raise the most money for APWC. ProSearch also hosted a breakfast at The WAFFLE to celebrate all runners after the marathon in a fun environment.

To build excitement among employees for the Hollywood Half Marathon, ProSearch also hosted pre-marathon fundraising events such as a Sumo Wrestling Fundraiser to “fight against domestic violence” and a merchandise drive.

APWC is extremely grateful for the hard work and dedication of the ProSearchers involved in this campaign, which will help APWC continue to provide services to survivors of domestic violence.

Why APWC?
“This year we wanted to turn over a new leaf by offering our help to a local hero, APWC, because they simply do good work. It’s something we really appreciate, good work, particularly when it’s done by a small organization with modest resources that manages to scrap and get things done…and done well. These are our heroes. They unselfishly put their heads down and work hard to make their community better; never worrying about accolades and just hoping their work helps others. It seems like the true definition of “hero” to us. We just hope our efforts help APWC continue to inspire.” –Mit Patel, ProSearch Employee
