Connect Participates in Make a Wish Walk

The team at Connect participated in the Make A Wish Walk on March 28th. The associates were excited to be part of an event that raises money to help children with terminal or serious illnesses and their families create lasting memories.

“Connect participated in the Make A Wish Foundation Walk for the first time last year,” said Rachel O’Hara, the company’s Chief Executive Officer. “This year we hoped to have 30 people participate. I come from a childcare background, so giving back to the community for kids really hits home.”

Several team members also expressed that they were proud to participate in this event. Said Cary N., who participated for the second time, “I get involved because the Make A Wish Foundation is a great cause. They are making children’s dreams come true every day! I support this wonderful organization because they go out of their way to make terminally ill children feel special.”

Shawna T. is another Connect team member who participated for the second of what she hopes will be many walks. “I think that the Make A Wish Foundation is one of the best non-profit organizations to support. I have two wonderful children who are fortunate enough to be in good health, so to give back to other children and help make their wishes come true fills me with joy,” she said. “I will never stop supporting this organization. This year my kids will be walking by my side to help support the cause.”

"Sharing special moments like these in which we are able to raise money and awareness to help provide amazing memories for kids with other wonderful people is something I won't soon forget."

Also participating this year is Kara C., who raised money for last year’s event. “I love kids and the concept of this foundation,” she exclaimed. “From the moment we are born, the concept of wishing upon the stars or just wishing in general is embedded in our brains,” she said. “It is truly amazing that there is a foundation through which this concept can come true and that actually allows things that sometimes feel unattainable to become a reality.”

Connect Team Discusses Giving Back to the Community

At Connect, the ability to give back to the community through the Make A Wish Foundation is just part of the company’s overall values. “We believe there are tremendous benefits that can be derived from contributing to a good cause,” said O’Hara. “We support several other charitable organizations, but this one is near to each of our hearts. That’s the most critical factor. You need a cause your entire team can support.”


“Sharing special moments like these in which we are able to raise money and awareness to help provide amazing memories for kids with other wonderful people is something I won’t soon forget. These kids are battling for their lives every day and need support,” concluded O’Hara. “Thanks to everyone at Connect  and all who has been a part of our special morning!”
