Ruby Receptionists Races for the Cure!

On Sunday, September 19th, our team of outstanding virtual receptionists took to the streets of downtown Portland to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. The Ruby team was 25 strong and walked proudly alongside thousands of fellow Oregonians to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation. According to Komen Oregon, 40,000 runners, walkers and volunteers attended the event, which is the largest Komen Race on the West Coast! This was the 5th consecutive year that our virtual reception company has walked in the race, and we are proud to be part of such a wonderful event and cause!

Our very own Hilary P. is not only your virtual receptionist extraordinaire, but she is also a woman who has seen firsthand what effect breast cancer can have on a family. This past Sunday, Hilary walked to honor 3 of her aunts who are survivors and to honor the memory of her grandmother. Even though the reality of this disease is devastating, Hilary walked with her head held high and a positive note in her heart — she was proud to walk in the event, because it’s more about a brighter future than a dark past for her. Hilary said, “Having seen what it can do to families, it’s really important to me that I try and contribute to an end to that suffering.”

The Race for the Cure is about hope, and we at Ruby want thank each and every person who took the time to spend the day with us and walk for such a worthwhile cause!

Here are a few photos from the event:
