During the pandemic, many nonprofits are facing increased demand while being compelled to cancel some of their crucial fundraising events in the interest of health and safety. Now, more than ever it’s crucial to help nonprofits as they support those who are greatly affected by COVID-19. IT/IQ partnered with the United Way of the Lower Mainland, to help those in need during the pandemic.
ClimbUP 2020 Event
IT/IQ walked 2,830 steps each day from 9/23 – 10/3 to raise awareness for the United Way‘s ClimbUP challenge. The United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our communities and around the world. IT/IQ’s President, Feras Elkhalil, interviewed with CTV Morning Live to launch the United Way’s ClimbUP initiative. And things got a little competitive, watch the full interview here.
The ClimbUP challenge was a resounding success. In terms of dollars raised, Feras finished in first place raising $3,082, beating his goal of $2,000. As a whole, IT/IQ raised $9,062, contributing to the $56,000+ raised in total for the challenge. The IT/IQ team enjoyed participating in the event this year, and look forward to competing again next year!
