Each week we'll be profiling one of the agencies competing in this year's tournament. For Week #2 we've selected those guys and girls from that street - John St.
In 2014 John St. brought their team to a fourth place finish by raising an impressive $1,600 for the LGBT Youth Line. They propped up their own team members, photo-bombed the other team photos, and brought enthusiasm and dedication. This year will be more of the same as we have two teams from the agency participating and they're currently in the process of devising an all-office initiative to kick their fundraising into full gear.
When asked why they keep coming back for more, Team Captain, Kendal Saby had this to say "The john st. team is once again excited to participate in this event to support the LGBT Youth Line. Some of us participated last year and we are truly excited to have doubled the members participating this year. It goes without saying that this event speaks to all of us on so many levels that we wanted to 'throw' our support."
The John St. passion and spirit can be summed up in one sentence and an inspirational quote: "As a group, along with all the other participants, we hope that our continued support and love inspire individuals to be able to live their lives freely and honestly and for those that don't completely understand to come to a place of understanding and love without prejudices."
"We need to defend the interest of those whom we've met and never will." - Jeffrey D. Sachs
