AG Run for a Reason 2021 Recap

Oct 18, 2021 10:00:00 AM

Our community is as important to us as our customers. We feel the same sense of commitment to service to our local communities in Ogden and Cedar City, Utah, as well as Rexburg, Idaho, as we do for our dealers, partners, and subscribers that are spread across the United States.

In support of our community, AG currently hosts an annual “Run for a Reason” 5K in both Rexburg and Ogden to raise funds for a local family struggling financially due to medical issues. Local businesses sponsor the event, and employees, family members and friends in the community run and donate. All donations and sponsorship proceeds go the family in need. Check out the video recap of the events below: 

Rexburg

In Rexburg, AG’s “reason to run” was for little Ruth Tagg and the Tagg Family. Ruth was born at just 24 weeks, weighing in at only 15 ounces. She struggles with many respiratory and heart issues and has endured several surgeries.

The 5K race for Ruth took place on September 18th 2021. Through the event and donations, AG was able to raise over $11,000 for the Tagg family. Brandie and Chapman, Ruth’s parents, expressed their most sincere gratitude for the outpouring of love and support they have received from the community. While still in critical care, Ruth is growing and making great progress.

Ogden

In Ogden, the 5K was held on September 25th, 2021 for Xander Clark and the Clark Family. Xander is a 13-year-old boy who was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma in May. Xander had been hospitalized for over a month and will likely need to continue chemo treatment for the next three years.

The race for Xander Clark raised over $12,000 for the Clark family. Xander’s mother was overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support from the community and expressed how much this will help their family during this difficult time.

As an organization dedicated to service and caring, we look beyond our team and into the community to build deeper connections, not only within our organization, but also with the great communities that allow us to put down roots to provide safety and security to people throughout North America. We hope that the money raised can help eliminate some of the financial stress for each of these families. Thank you to all who participated and donated this year.
