Community Options has worked tirelessly to garner the support of major corporations across the country for the Cupid’s Chase 5K Run and the mission of supporting people with disabilities.
“I encourage corporations across the United States to become involved with the Cupid’s Chase 5K Run that supports an important cause – community housing and employment for people with disabilities,”
As a result of this hard work, Community Options, alongside it’s corporate partners, Withum Smith + Brown, Gunlocke Furniture, Dani Leather and even Senator Joe Kyrillos of New Jersey’s 13th Legislative District will be ringing the Opening Bell at the NASDAQ on Tuesday, February 1, 2011 just in time for the upcoming national Cupid’s Chase 5K Run on Saturday, February 12, 2011.
“Ringing the Opening Bell at the NASDAQ is the symbolic culmination of the work the organization has done this year to prepare for our largest annual fundraiser,”
The group will be ringing the Opening Bell at the NASDAQ to celebrate the finest of corporate social responsibility and couldn’t think of a better way to thank their corporate partners than to invite them to ring the bell with the organization. All of the proceeds from the upcoming Cupid’s Chase and the over $100,000 raised over the past year to support the run, will go directly to support people with disabilities the organization supports.
To view the ringing of the bell live on Tuesday, February 1, 2011, launch the following link in your web browser at 9:15am http://www.nasdaq.com/
