DES has participated in the multiple miles for myeloma fun run named in honor of our late founding member of DES for the last 5 years. Al Thomas suggested we put a team together in 2011 while he was battling the very disease that this event attempts to raise money for. Without hesitation, the then much smaller DES headed out and walked or ran 5 Km with Al cheering everyone on. He was our motivation then and continues to motivate the yearly DES teams that show up now. Whether you knew him or not, our company owes its success to Al Thomas and spending a morning together enjoying this fun event while raising some money will surely make him proud. I encourage everyone to sign up and walk 5 Km, run 5 Km or 10 Km, push young kids in strollers, sit in strollers while someone pushes you, hide behind a tree and blend in with the 10 Km runners when they finish, or just come out and cheer everyone on. We are very proud to say we have raised $155,255.00 for this great cause.
