Mansfield Employee Challenge Raises $10K for Muscular Dystrophy
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Mansfield Cares, the philanthropic arm of Mansfield Energy, has continued to actively support causes and raise funds for deserving charities across North America. For more than thirty-five years, Mansfield Energy has been a champion of the Muscular Dystrophy Association through its annual Mansfield Golf Classic and other fundraising events.
The 2020 Mansfield Golf Classic was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which prompted two Mansfield leaders to create the Rick and Andy Challenge, an online fundraiser to make up for the reduction of in-person activities and events generating significant funds for MDA. To reach a combined $10,000, Supply SVP Any Milton and Wholesale Fuels Marketing VP Rick Enright challenged their internal teams to donate to Mansfield Cares, and they would each match up to $2,500. “We’ve been lucky both personally and professionally, and wanted to find a way to do some good in a time when we all needed some positive news,” said Milton. “This fundraiser was a great way to give back to an organization that brings so much optimism, research, and encouragement to families.”
Mansfield employees rose to the occasion and helped the Rick and Andy Challenge raise over $10K in two weeks. “Our teams rallied around this goal, and honestly, we were not surprised when we quickly hit our target, “ said Enright. “We have a fantastic organization here at Mansfield, and the challenge offered some light-hearted moments as we work together to navigate a difficult time for our country.”
“Donations to the Muscular Dystrophy Association this year are substantially down,” said Mike Davino, Executive Director of Mansfield Cares, Inc. “This employee-driven fundraiser will provide support towards the MDA virtual summer camp, a substitute to the annual program held at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, GA.”
