This Sunday, thirteen ZEOs from the San Mateo office ran in the Oakland Running Festival in support of a charity, CALICO, an organization that helps children who've been abused navigate the complex legal system to achieve justice and healing.
We had three teams participating in the marathon relay and 3 individuals running the 5K.
Through the involvement of these ZEOs and their financial support (including Zuora's!), we were able contribute $2,000 to CALICO's efforts in raising over $44,000; which means that 44 children will receive care this coming year. This funding is especially critical as many social service organizations face funding cuts this year.
I'm incredibly proud of everyone who ran and glad to be part of a team that cares about fitness, community, and giving back!
