Local staff raises more than $17,000 for area kidney patients.
ATLANTA, Nov. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogistiCare, the nation’s largest non-emergency medical transportation broker, today announced that staff at its Las Vegas Operations Center raised and donated more than $17,000, a record breaker, in support of the 2019 Las Vegas Kidney Walk, earning designation as the event’s top fundraiser.
The donations, funded by approximately 380 Las Vegas LogistiCare employees, benefit the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), a non-profit organization dedicated to awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease.
The $17,000-plus total represents the highest achieved by any corporate fundraising team since the Las Vegas Kidney Walk was first organized five years ago. It also marks the fourth consecutive year LogistiCare has won the corporate challenge for fielding the top fundraising team.
“We take great pride in supporting our local chapter of the National Kidney Foundation and are honored to raise funds for an organization with a personal connection to many of our employees and individuals we serve,” said Matthew Horne, call center director at LogistiCare’s Las Vegas Operations Center. “Participating in the Kidney Walk is about more than just raising money – it’s an outward demonstration of our staff’s compassion for the millions afflicted with kidney disease and a commitment to helping fight this debilitating illness.”
