Celebrating 50 years of making our communities well with 50 acts of wellness

Team Rite Aid Raises Almost $14,000 for the American Diabetes Association!

When: Sunday, October 7

Where: Camp Hill, PA

Over 50 Rite Aid associates, supplier partners, family members and friends from the corporate offices and local stores participated in the American Diabetes Association “Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes” on Oct. 7, 2012 in Harrisburg, PA.

Participants chose to walk or run a three or five-mile course on the Middletown campus of  Pennsylvania State University. Rite Aid associates collected pledges and raised almost $14,000 for the event – the most of any team!

Corporate Associates Lisa Shuey and Sarah Matunis were two of the top 10 fundraisers for the walk, and Sarah addressed the crowd along with her daughter, Anna, who is a Youth Ambassador for the American Diabetes Association. Members of Rite Aid supplier partner, The Dowell Group, joined Team Rite Aid and raised $2,500 to help the fight. Rite Aid, a corporate sponsor of the walk, provided a gift bag to participants and hosted a brunch before the walk.
