More than 300 members of MONAT’s independent salesforce participated in the More than a Race 5K. The event was themed “Take the Lead,” so participants dressed up as their favorite leading movie characters.
“Every step we take in the race not only brings us closer to the finish line, but also to a brighter future for youth everywhere,” said Lu Urdaneta, MONAT Global chief culture officer and MONAT Gratitude Foundation CEO. “In addition to bringing together leaders of our independent salesforce, this race serves a bigger purpose by helping improve outcomes for youth in our communities. I’m proud of our participants for doing good for themselves and the community.”
MONAT Gratitude Foundation has donated more than $600,000 to more than 40 youth education programs through the $1 million pledge grant program in 2022.
