KFW emphasizes volunteerism and philanthropy, and in 2019 we enacted a new way to get involved in our Morgan's Wonderland partnership. Sponsoring the Snowball 5K was a new venture for us and we were very glad to see our employees get on board.
We held a few internal competitions to sweeten the event for our fundraising Engineers. We're already brimming with competitive employees, so why not make it official? The team who raised the most money for Morgan's Wonderland earned a team building event at Alamo Drafthouse. We have some athletes here at KFW, so we did a second competition to award the fastest 5k running team with some holiday cash. Sponsoring the Snowball 5k was a unique way to show our employees how a little more involvement goes a long way helping our local friends with special needs.
In addition to our corporate sponsorship, our employees tackled the challenge of raising $5,000 through their personal networks and creative inter-office raffles. We are excited to announce that not only did our employees reach our $5,000 fundraising goal, but they surpassed it to raise over $6,800 for the mission of inclusion. This effort earned us the highest fundraising team award, announced at the dance party after the 5k.
We are extremely proud of our employees for rising to this challenge and far surpassing our expectations of participation and excitement.
