My Team Over Yours. Any. Day.

This weekend marked the 25th annual Komen Race for the Cure in NYC, a fundraising road race to support breast cancer research; and it also marked our second year participating with a BuzzBack team.
However, our participation this year was notably different from last year’s. Our team was larger, and our motivation was personal. A member of our team is treating breast cancer. While some of us ran, others walked, literally side by side with our brave colleague. Either way, we were all there to support her at the race, but also to demonstrate that we will walk this life journey with her. We proudly wore our L'Equipe de BuzzBack shirts and pink Fitbits courtesy of our client.

It’s days like this that remind me that BuzzBack isn’t just any old company – it’s a magnet for special, thoughtful, conscientious people. People who sign up when times are tough, even former BuzzBack-ers showed up for her. The Komen race was only the latest demonstration of support for this ‘work family’ member. There have been many meal deliveries on her treatment days as she has young children. Some have even attended treatment sessions with her. The offers to help are overflowing, there’s no shortage of volunteers to help with personal tasks.

As the leader of this tribe it’s been amazing to experience and I have been bowled over by where our culture has evolved. Teamwork has transcended the workplace. It’s just who we are now. And there is no way I can take credit for it. I’m just proud that I’m part of it.
