It’s been a busy spring and summer here at NAS headquarters. We were honored to take the time to participate in two very special events:

NAS joins LifeAct’s Into the Light Walk

On a recent Sunday, the NAS team got together to “shine the light” on an important cause by participating in LifeAct’s 15th annual Into the Light Walk. It was a truly inspirational experience to share personal, heartfelt moments with strangers all around us who all participated in the walk for the same reasons: knowing a loved one who lost their battle with depression, getting the conversation started to encourage those struggling to get help, and showing support in the march towards lowering the statistics of young people losing their lives to depression and suicide.

Held at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, the event raised almost $100,000 overall and NAS placed in the Top 5 teams who donated, contributing $2,304.50. We’d like to thank LifeAct for allowing us to share in its extraordinary mission.

Help to fight childhood cancer, one cup at a time

Friday, July 12 was a gorgeous summer day in Cleveland. Given our success in last year’s fundraiser to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, we were “all hands on deck” at NAS corporate headquarters this year. Many kind, generous people stopped by to enjoy a glass of lemonade and change a life for a child facing hardship. 100% of contributions are donated to the Foundation to support research in finding better treatments and cures for childhood cancer.

Our goal was set at $1,000: NAS raised $578 at our lemonade stand and another $475 through online donations. With NAS matching $1,000, we were able to contribute $2,053.
