Make A Wish Benefits from Growvember

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Maptek Denver office has raised nearly $12,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation.

In late 2011 Maptek continued its fundraising traditions with Make-A-Wish®Colorado, an organisation that grants the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions.

As a result of Maptek efforts, 16-year-old leukaemia patient, Robert received an electric cello and bow, while 13-year-old haemophiliac, Briana visited Hawaii with her family to swim with the dolphins.

This was Maptek’s third ‘Growvember’ fundraising event, held in conjunction with a best-beard challenge. The entireDenveroffice supported the 17 contestants. Best-beard winner, Jim Philpott selected Life Turns, an organisation dedicated to transforming the lives of medically challenged children through outdoor activities, for an additional $5000 contribution by Maptek.

‘Most of the guys like not shaving for a month and most of our wives hate it, but when you hand over that cheque to great organisations like Make-A-Wish and Life Turns, it’s something that we are all very proud of,’ said Steve Uecker, Client Experience Manager in North America.
