“The Cadre team has participated in STEPtember for the last three years, and it is definitely one of the most rewarding cross-collaborative things we do! We love the friendly competition and working together to raise funds for such an important cause. We are so happy to support STEPtember and CPARF!”
— Catie Case, Culture and Events Manager - Cadre
" Participating in STEPtember helped our employees connect with others in the organization they wouldn’t generally on a day-to-day basis in an effort to support local communities where we live. Through our work with CPARF, we’ve learned that Cerebral Palsy research is very much needed and we wanted to be able to contribute in some way. STEPtember allowed us to do just that all while engaging with other employees during this difficult time."
— Jessica Clifton, Senior Manager, Enterprise Risk - QBE
"PwC appreciates how STEPtember is inclusive of all staff to work towards a common goal for this meaningful cause. Joining a team across divisions allowed for staff to work with others who might not be on their engagement team, allowing for bonds to strengthen among staff, building camaraderie while giving back to this amazing organization."
