News : Philippine Call Center Participates in NYC Marathon for a Cause
Makati City, Philippines, March 23, 2016 -- Open Access BPO, a multilingual call center with operation sites in Asia, is sending three of its employees to the world's biggest marathon, the TCS New York City Marathon. The event will be held on November 6.
Employees Clint Ortiz, Alberto Agulto, and Leo Peñas are running as part of Ryan's Run, one of the Silver Charity partners of the TCS New York City Marathon. Ryan's Run is a nonprofit fundraising campaign that supports the Allied Services Integrated Health System in developing rehabilitation technologies. The funds they raise help thousands of people in the United States in recovering from injuries and physical disabilities. Open Access BPO, as one of the six principal sponsors of Ryan's Run, yearns to champion this cause.
"Joining Ryan's Run and the NYC Marathon is kind of a two-pronged thing. First, getting our employees into the marathon means we're also backing an organization that does rehabilitative work across the United States. Second, it's an opportunity for us to reward those folks who have been in the company a long time. This activity ties into their passion and allows them to participate in something that's really big," CEO Benjamin Davidowitz said.
The three marathoners from Open Access BPO are currently training for the massive sporting event by running uphill in low-temperature locations. They will also be participating in the Nat Geo Earth Day Run on April 17, where they will be featured by members of the local press.
