NLB Services Proud To Be Gold Sponsor For Vibha Dream Mile in NJ on September 16, 2017
Vibha, a nation-wide nonprofit has 18 action centers across the US and has raised $ 15 million since its inception in 1991, by the tireless commitment of its volunteers. To date, through 250 supported projects, they have impacted the lives of 300,000 children. Currently they support 30 projects in India and 7 in the US. Vibha’s mission is to educate, empower and enable every individual who wishes to make a positive difference in the life of the underprivileged child.
Under a gorgeous sky, on a perfect day in September, 70 volunteers gathered at the break of dawn in Skillman Park, NJ, to start preparing for a grand event: the Inaugural Vibha NY/NJ 5K Dream Mile Walk/Run under the aegis of the all-volunteer non-profit Vibha Inc. The remarkable feature of the event was the enthusiasm and drive displayed by the young organizers – middle school teens, under the tutelage of their parents, arranged most of the details of the 5K, and had been planning the event for several months pouring their energy, talent and ideas into the preparatory stages, then participating avidly all the way in the execution of the event and finally ensuring that the actual event day was a resounding and smooth success
Here are a few highlights of the amazing event:
- A total of 473 walkers/runners shined in their classy Dream Mile Red shirts (carrying sponsor logos at the back).
- Bragged compliments like, “This is the most professional 5K I have ever attended”, by a professional runner, after Montgomery Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker congratulated the winners.
- Carroll Mcintire, NLB’s Director – Client Partner not only ran the race but also handed away some prizes to the winners.
- The Walk raised $12K with 10 percent of net proceeds going to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Bag Project of Princeton, NJ which supplies a bag of essential items to children in crisis. The remaining amount funds ongoing India projects through Vibha.
NLB takes its corporate social responsibility very seriously in supporting social causes and social catalyst organizations like Vibha and will continue to strive to make a difference in the life of others. We believe that it is possible to build a highly successful business that has a noble social impact on society
