Sports for a Cause: June 2018
June 29, 2018
June’s Community Involvement includes two great organizations that are extremely important to two of our employees.
First, we had a few employees participate in this year’s Elephant Rock Cycling Festival. Plumbline Services has had employees join Team Zimbabwe in this festival the last few years and it’s always one of our favorite events! Team Zimbabwe helps raise money for the Zimbabwe Mission Partnership (ZMP). ZMP is comprised of 10 local churches here in Colorado that work together to support Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care (HCOC). HCOC was founded by a local retired couple to make a difference in Zimbabwe. The money raised for HCOC helps provide meals, pay school fees, provide medical supplies and so much more to the orphans and vulnerable children in the devastated African nation. Currently, the Zimbabwe Mission Partnership helps the Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care serve over 800 children.
Secondly, one of our Plumbing Service Professionals, David P., participated in the Annual Finley Firefighter Memorial Hockey Tournament. The idea for this tournament came about 16 years ago when a local firefighter’s life was changed forever. He got the call that no one ever wants to get, that his family had been in a car accident and his son was in critical condition. Luckily, his son made a full recovery! However, the firefighter wanted to do something to make a difference. This is where the hockey tournament comes in! All the proceeds of the tournament go to the Colorado State Patrol “Alive at 25” Program. This program is a 4 ½ hour driver’s awareness course that is designed to help young drivers, ages 15-24, become safer drivers. It includes defensive driving and decision-making/responsibility taking courses. Both of these events are so much fun, but more importantly they help make a real difference. Plumbline Services is honored and proud to help such exceptional organizations.
