2015 Lake Minnetonka Triathlon – ICA Food Shelf Fundraiser
Most of us have heard some variation of “if you don’t like the weather, wait 30 minutes and it will change.” Well, that’s what happened Saturday, June 20th when Team 360 arrived at Lake Minnetonka in Excelsior to participate in the Lake Minnetonka triathlon! Not so much the 30 minutes, but definitely a change in weather! The early morning hours started with lightning and heavy rains, followed by sprinkles, and then sunshine. Unfortunately, the sunshine didn’t arrive until after the swim portion of the triathlon had been cancelled and the race participants had already started on the bike portion. But the weather didn’t prevent us from achieving our ultimate goal at the event – to raise funds for ICA Food Shelf! When all the dollars, checks and online donations were tallied, we were able to raise $3,647.00 for ICA Food Shelf, including matching funds from 360 Financial. This puts our cumulative fundraising efforts for ICA at $13,722.40! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED! And we’ll hope for a rain-free triathlon next year!
2014 Feed My Starving Children Food Packing
This past November 18th, clients, family, and friends joined the staff of 360 Financial at Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen for our annual Thanksgiving tradition of packing meals for the neediest children on our planet. During our shift, the 44 volunteers of Team 360 helped pack 13,824 meals – enough to feed 37 children for an entire year! 360 Financial also donated $20 on behalf of each Team 360 volunteer, providing FMSC with $880 to purchase ingredients for meals. In addition, we noticed that many of Team 360’s volunteers personally supported FMSC by purchasing items from their store and/or donating money. Thank you for your generosity!
This was Team 360’s fourth trip to FMSC and our largest in terms of number of volunteers, meals packed and money raised for Feed My Starving Children. Way to go Team 360 – can’t wait to see what happens next year! To everyone who volunteered…a heartfelt THANK YOU for sharing your time, talent and resources!
2014 Lake Minnetonka Triathlon – ICA Food Shelf Fundraiser
Always an exciting event, this year’s Triathlon was no exception. In addition to Mike Rogers returning for the 5th year in a row to swim, bike and run 18 ½ miles, 360 Financial’s newest employee Ryan Schilling participated in his first-ever triathlon! Incredibly, Mike’s and Ryan’s total race times were less than 30 seconds apart! But most exciting of all was collecting $4,519.40 for ICA Food Shelf – with $1,500 coming from matching funds by 360 Financial – plus several boxes full of food! Through the generosity of clients, friends, race participants and other community members, Team 360 has now raised more than $10,000 for ICA Food Shelf since we began fundraising 5 years ago. Thanks to everyone who had a part in it!
2013 Feed My Starving Children Food Packing
On November 19th, Team 360 was joined by clients, family and friends at Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen for our annual Thanksgiving tradition of helping others in need. We were excited to be part of the hard-working crew that night – a total of 11,448 meals were packed during our shift. Those meals will feed 31 children for an entire year! In addition, 360 Financial’s cash donation helped FMSC replenish ingredients used that evening. What an awesome way to give back to the community – thanks to everyone who participated!
2013 Lake Minnetonka Triathlon – ICA Food Shelf Fundraiser
With overcast skies on an early Saturday morning in June, Team 360 Financial cheered for Mike Rogers as he crossed the finish line at the Lake Minnetonka Triathlon for the fourth consecutive year. He continued his efforts to raise awareness for the ICA Food Shelf, an organization that serves 7 communities in the western suburbs. With 360 Financial’s matching funds and support from clients, friends and community members – which continued even after the triathlon – we were able to raise nearly $2,700 for the ICA Food Shelf. Over the past three years, Team 360’s efforts have resulted in donations to ICA of more than $5,500. Thank you to everyone who supported our endeavors!
