Employees nominated and voted for four nonprofit organizations to receive grant funds. Recipients include Cure SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy), Tailwaggers 911, TWLOHA (To Write Love On Her Arms) and the Wisconsin Humane Society. In addition, employees donated more than 5,000 nonperishable food products to the Hunger Task Force.
“What’s unique about Brady Walk is that our employees choose the organizations we support not only through the grants from the event, but also through gift drives during the year,” said Michael Nauman, president and CEO, Brady. “The event was also a great opportunity for our employees to get to know one another outside of the office and build relationships with community partners.”
More than 500 Brady employees participated the event. The day started with remarks from the company’s leadership and an opportunity to meet Hank the dog from the Milwaukee Brewers. Afterward, employees walked up to five laps on Brady’s walking path and were treated to a barbecue lunch.
Brady Corporation supports nonprofits through Brady Walk grants, as well as the Brady Foundation. Since it began in 2010, the Brady Walk for Community has raised $750,000 for nonprofit organizations.
