Cheryl Porter, Leslee Elliot, Lori Blough, Kelly Dalman, and Trish Ward donated their time and effort to make the sale a success.

On Saturday September 29, 20 TTS employees participated in the annual Fort4Fitness run/walk event. The event consisted of four distance choices, 4-mile run/walk, 10k run/walk, half marathon run, and full marathon run. TTS combined the event with a bake sale which raised $230 for Team Rubicon.

TVBS gathered over 25 volunteers to participate in Convoy of Hope's "Hands of Hope" event. The team joined in to help pack: over 5,000 pounds of bulk pasta bagged (11,280 meals for our Children's Feeding Program); 2,736 bags of cereal for our feeding programs; 5,000 grocery bags for a Community Event in LA; 2,350 pairs of Toms Shoes ready to be distributed to kids in need in rural communities all over the US

TTS employees and friends participated in the fourth annual Ride for Rubicon event to benefit our cause partner, Team Rubicon. The event raised $800 for Team Rubicon.

“I am honored to be a part of an organization that volunteers to provide such a noble service to folks when they need it most,” said Tim Gorman who was co-coordinator of the event along with Brock Holley.
In April, Team Rubicon and Tuthill gathered their efforts around one home in Chicago near Lake St. and Cicero Ave. where an elderly woman in a wheelchair needed assistance. Team Rubicon was the house sponsor, a local contractor, Kevin, served as the house captain, and Tuthill and Team Rubicon provided volunteers.

Team Rubicon members held a service event at the Dogwood Ranch in Rogersville, MO on April 22. The Dogwood Ranch, a non-profit, provides supports for survivors of trauma including foster children, at-risk youth and veterans.

Special Recognition:

Each year we issue a few special patches for Wake the World engagement. This year we're proud to recognize their commitment to waking the world by engaging with Team Rubicon.

Our "All In, All Heart" patch recognizes service that goes above and beyond in our call to Wake the World. This year, for a second year in a row, Erica Magda from Burr Ridge is being recognized for her all-in approach to strengthening and maintaining our relationship with Team Rubicon. She continued her role as an "honorary" TR coordinator and organized a number of events including Habitat for Humanity projects and the Hines VA visit. Due to Erica's tremendous efforts the participation rate of Burr Ridge employees engaging with TR in 2018 was almost 100%. Thank you, Erica!

Our "Pump Your Heart Into It" patch is one of the hardest patches to earn because you must engage with Team Rubicon in every type of event: deployment, service, social, training, and fitness. Consider it a lifetime achievement patch as you earn it over the duration of all Team Rubicon events. This year we're proud to recognize Tim Gorman for earning this special achievement! Tim organized, led, and participated in several area events, including deployment to Kalamazoo, MI to help the city recover from severe flooding. Congratulations, Tim!
