Colleagues Drive Support for ADA

For the past several years, Anixter has been a corporate sponsor of the American Diabetes Association in the Chicagoland area. In addition to the Tour de Cure bike ride, colleagues take part in the Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes in Buffalo Grove, IL, and St. Louis, MO.

The Glenview team kicked off this year's fundraising efforts in July with a presentation on healthy summertime eating from nutrition consultant and ADA advocate Ryan Glendenning. A melon carving competition added to the fun.

Philanthropy Ride

11 motorcycle enthusiasts drove 160 miles to raise money for ADA

The first annual Philanthropy Ride took place in early August. In all, 11 motorcycle enthusiasts drove 160 miles--beginning at our headquarters in Glenview, IL, to Lake Geneva, WI, and back --and raised $440 (with the company match) for the fight against the disease.

Our St. Louis team kicked off their fundraising efforts in grand style with a traditional St. Louis barbecue. Keane's Express Delivery donated the meat, which was grilled by chef AJ Hoy.
