On September 28th, Nitel employees participated in the tenth annual Nitel 5k Charity Challenge, benefiting Mercy Home for Boys and Girls. Mercy Home provides life-changing programs and services to more than 650 troubled and hurting young men and women in Chicago every year. Runners and walkers lined up at the south end of North Avenue Beach to complete the 3.1 mile course along the lakefront. Our very own president, Ron Grason took first place followed by our vice president of marketing Jason Borkowicz in second and orders specialist Ben Simpson rounding out the top three. Staff, with help from friends and family, are continuing to raise donations. All funds help support Mercy Home’s efforts to provide solutions for at-risk youth in Chicago.
