WHAT MAKES THIS EVENT SO SPECIAL TO YOU?

This event is our way of doing something positive in the community while honoring an incredible employee. Rich Holtz had been an employee of Schupan & Sons since early in our company’s history and served as the Vice President of Shipping and Recycling for many years. Rich constantly battled the diabetes that he had been diagnosed with as a child. At one point, he was nearly blind but still ran three of our facilities. That’s just the kind of guy Rich was. He had incredible heart and never complained—he was an inspiration. So, that’s why we started a charity event for Diabetes treatment. As time has gone on and the event has grown over the past 19 years, we now also support Big Brothers Big Sisters.

JULIE RUEL

DEVELOPMENT MANAGER AT MARCH OF DIMES

WHAT MAKES THIS EVENT SO SPECIAL TO YOU?

I have a personal connection to the mission. I was a premature baby, which for me, also meant that I was born with a congenital heart defect. The March for Babies helps raise money to educate people and medical professionals to make sure that moms and babies get the best possible care. It also helps to fund research to find solutions to the biggest risks premature babies face. More than that, the March for Babies brings our mission to life, connecting with those most affected in the community.
