North America, Can you Step Up to the Challenge? Fund
The Challenge You may have seen in May when RAF Financial Analysts Roland Camacho and Dylan Johnston out of the Edmond, Oklahoma office led a virtual helping hands event for the West Territory. Well, they’re doing it again and challenging all of North America to join in on the challenge. We will be walking the week of September 14th and your daily steps Monday through Friday that week will count towards an individual and team competition. The Goals We want to feel connected while we are still apart, we want to raise money for a good cause and we are encouraging everyone to stay active. The Charity We will be raising money for Feeding America and the American Red Cross, in light of all the recent natural disasters. If you are joining the challenge from outside of U.S., and would like to add additional charities to support North America, please let us know. Our recommendation is that each person donates a penny per step on their daily average – that means that if you walk the recommended 10,000 steps daily, we’d ask you donate $100 to the fund with a maximum recommendation of $100, so don’t worry if you blow past 10,000 steps. Also, if you’d like to join the step challenge but aren’t ready to donate, that is fine as well. Tracking Progress There are many ways to track your daily steps via the Health app on your Smartphone, Smartwatch or download the StepUp Pedometer from your app store. In order to track your steps for the challenge, we ask that you can email or text your daily steps to Carollann Romo. (Carollann.romo@raboag.com, 661-904-7558) We will have updates for the team challenges throughout the week. Currently the teams are broke out to Wholesale, DLL, Pacific Territory RAF/RDS, West Territory RAF/RDS, East Territory RAF/RDS, Central Territory RAF/RDS, Vendor Finance and RDS. You can choose your team or let us know if we missed a group. As you’re walking, please take a picture too and we’ll use them to put together a recap video. The Competition Each of the top three individuals with the most steps will receive $100 in their Bright Funds account to donate to a charity of their choice, this is thanks to the Health and Wellness Committee. We will also be tracking the team winners. There are two team winners, one will be based on the total number of steps and another will be on the average steps per person.

Pass the Plate Challenge Fund
It’s happening in every single community in the country. Thousands of people have lost their jobs due to the pandemic, and for those people already living paycheck to paycheck, they now have to make the choice between food, bills or medicine. The people affected might be your co-workers, family, friends, and neighbors. But people in our communities like the elderly, the disabled and children are also affected as are the people that serve our communities. Covid19 doesn’t discriminate when it comes to who gets infected, but it also doesn’t discriminate as far as who gets affected economically even if they don’t contract the virus. We’re thankful our paychecks haven’t stopped. We’re thankful we still have a job. And we want to make sure our communities don’t go hungry. The Feeding America network is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States including in times of disasters and national emergencies. All eligible donations made by VMware employees to this fund will be matched. Whether it’s a dollar, 5 dollars, 100, or a 1,000, please donate. Every bit helps, and a monetary donation or online fundraiser is one of the most efficient and effective ways to support your local food bank in a crisis situation. But don’t let it stop with you. Pass the plate and challenge your colleagues, family and friends to also join in donating by tagging them and challenging them and even having them record a video of themselves passing the plate. The most vulnerable people in our communities need us now more than ever, so let’s be EPIC, and do what we can to help. It’s your turn now! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvN14uM_6Kw&feature=youtu.be
