Another great year at the Susan G Komen Walk #Race4theCure! Every year we have sponsored the infamous Susan G Komen Race for the Cure in Central Park but this year we had our employees participate as a team,

set up our own booth and passed out our own branded hair ties (for those of you ladies who forgot theirs at home and for the men that wanted a little flare!). We had such a great time and can hardly wait for next year also, our race team raised $1,050! 


From NYC Parks to Ballparks


Earlier last month myself and a few of my colleagues participated in an NYC Parks Activity event alongside students from the Lou Gehrig Middle School IS151 in the Bronx. We helped clean up a park by pulling a specific kind of weed called a mustard weed. All of the students appeared to enjoy the activity, as did all of us at Action.


Super Bowl Boulevard

On February 2, 2014, MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will host Super Bowl XLVIII. To celebrate, New York City, the Super Bowl Host Committee and GMC have dreamed up “Super Bowl Boulevard,” a series of football-themed experiences that will take over Times Square the week before the big game. Stop by a live concert, snap a photo with the Vince Lombardi Trophy or race down a specially made toboggan. Admission is FREE and open to the public. FOX, NFL Network, CBS, CNN and ESPN will broadcast the festivities live.
