From our president, Brian Freer:
As part of Unite2Fight with the Austen Everett Foundation, I had the honor of meeting Rob Heckard and his wonderful family at Safeco Field in June for a Seattle Mariners game against the Rays. I came away inspired by Rob’s gratitude and was swept up in the joy his family expressed at the beauty of a great day at the ballpark. As a company founder and executive, the Unite2Fight program at AEF has encouraged us to reach beyond philanthropy. In the process we have learned a few things from AEF Honorees about courage and resilience. Our partnership with AEF has become a journey and maybe that is fitting. AEF Honorees have allowed us to join their journeys. Our challenge is to learn from these experiences and take the spirit of the journey into our professional lives and business relationships.
