Digital marketing agency Webolutions® received the Emily P. Bissell Award for its leadership and support of the American Lung Association in Colorado.
The Emily Bissell Award recognizes the “individual or organization who demonstrates admirable grass-roots leadership and support of American Lung Association in Colorado programs.” Over the past year, Webolutions partnered with the ALAC to improve the marketing efforts for the Run the Rocks and the Fight for Air Climb events. In addition, Webolutions created a team, Webolutions Revolutions, that was the largest team and second-biggest fundraiser. The company has raised nearly $14,000 for the American Lung Association in Colorado so far this year.
“It is truly an honor to partner with the American Lung Association in Colorado,” said John Vachalek, founder and CEO of Webolutions. “We believe in making a positive difference in people’s lives. Our participation in the Run the Rocks 5K and Fight for Air Climb continues a 20-year tradition of community involvement.”
The award’s namesake, Emily P. Bissell was an American social worker and activist who spearheaded a number of social causes in the first half of the 20th century including child labor laws and helping people with tuberculosis. Her tuberculosis fundraising evolved into the highly successful Christmas Seals program.
