Leadership thoughts from PeopleFirst HR

The Power of One

1 Comment


I’m not sure if this is about leadership, but I’m going to write about it anyway.  This past weekend I walked 30 miles across Atlanta with nearly 700 other walkers and hundreds of volunteers in the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.  This group raised more than $650,000 in individual donations for breast cancer organizations dedicated to serving Georgia communities. Walkers and volunteers at this past weekend’s event included men and women from 137 cities and towns in Georgia and 20 other states.  The power of this weekend and the people I met and spoke with truly humbled me.  The reasons were sometimes far and wide.  From walkers that wanted a challenge of walking 30 miles, to individuals undergoing treatment, to family and friends supporting loved ones. And then there were those who just want to make a positive impact in this world.  The incredible spirit of the walkers and volunteers dedicated to doing something to help those affected by breast cancer is overwhelming and I for one am proud to be a small part of this event and organization.

Thanks to all who sponsored and supported me and consider joining me at next year walk, which will be our 10th anniversary walk.
