Recently, Gap Intelligence has been voted in the top tier of local companies for several categories (beating a certain well known North County brewery in at least two), one of San Diego's healthiest companies among them. To that end, there are two important upcoming 5k's in November that many employees are walking/running in, some are even participating in both! Komen's Race for the Cure on November 6 and the American Lung Association's Fight for Air Walk on November 13, both worthy causes close to the hearts of gappers.

With 1 in 8 women being diagnosed with breast cancer, most everyone has been affected in some way by this disease. Last year one of our own was diagnosed, hitting close to home. I am happy to report that she is now cancer-free and healthy! Many gappers participated in the Race for the Cure in 2010, and are doing so again this year, in her honor.

Also close to home is the Fight for Air Walk. My own son is afflicted with asthma, along with so many other children. While there is no cure for asthma, there are treatments available and many ways to help prevent symptoms. The Fight for Air Walk is an important way to help the Lung Association raise funds to help these kids get the treatment they need and to fund further research.

 

These are just two events the employees at Gap Intelligence are participating in. We have been known to play beach volleyball and glow-ball golf, ride bikes and go skiing, and much much more. Gap's nomination for one of the healthiest companies is in direct keeping with our motto, "We are driven to contribute to something bigger than ourselves and trust that our hard work will turn into something great and that we’ll have fun along the way."
