ALBANY, NY – Bestpass partnered with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to give back to the community and promote healthy activities among employees, customers, and partners.
Under the leadership of the Bestpass Gives Committee, the initiative will culminate on June 12 with the virtual Tour de Cure 2021, in which more than 40 people will take part. Throughout the effort, Bestpass will highlight employees and drivers who are focused on improving their health on social media and newsletters.
“We are grateful to Bestpass for joining our efforts to raise much-needed funds for diabetes education and research at this year’s virtual Tour de Cure in New York State,” said Jeff Collins, executive director of ADA in New York . “Bestpass not only supports a good cause, but also works actively to improve the health and well-being of its employees and corporate partners. We take pride in working with them. “
Bestpass Gives, an employee-led committee within the company, is responsible for identifying opportunities to make meaningful contributions to the community while building relationships between functional teams. The committee identified diabetes awareness as its focus for the second quarter of 2021.
“With some studies showing that professional truckers are 50 percent more likely to experience diabetes than the national average, the American Diabetes Association and their good work fits naturally with our community efforts,” said Tom Fogarty, CEO of Bestpass.
