LaForce Runs!

Throughout the spring and summer, LaForce’s Wellness program sponsors employees and their family members who participate in local runs or run/walk events. We support healthy eating and active lifestyles and therefore commit time and funds to these experiences. Here are some highlights from this year’s events!

April 23: Walk MS in Cincinnati

About 40 LaForce team members joined together to support this fundraiser in Cincinnati. In total, the Walk MS raised over $267,000 for the cause. “Ending multiple sclerosis for good will take all of us. Walk MS helps us team up with friends, loved ones and co-workers to change the world for everyone affected by MS. Together, we become a powerful force. And with every step we take, every dollar we raise…we’re that much closer. Together, we will end MS forever.”
