Giving Boy a Bike

Crest Employee Gives a Bicycle to a Boy

 

Gene Blackard, a 6 year employee at Crest, volunteers at the ICan Ride organization which teaches kids with disabilities how to ride a bike. In the true spirit of giving back, Gene asked his fellow Crest employees to chip in to purchase a bike for Samuel Maus, a 10 year old boy that has autism. Samuel and his mother were told he may not ever be able to ride a bike due to limitations of his disorder. After receiving his bike from Gene and the Crest employees and 5 days of riding lessons with the ICan Ride volunteers, Samuel now is riding his bike just like any kid his age. He now has a bigger dream….”I’m going to be one of those guys in Paris on the bikes….”. To check out the full story, click here.

Crest Fresh Market Campaign
a Success for Oklahoma's Kids

Crest Fresh Market Campaign raises more than $41,000 for Children’s Hospital Foundation

 

(Oklahoma City) - June 26, 2013 – Through the efforts of energized and driven employees and customers, Crest Fresh Market’s inaugural three-week fundraising campaign raised more than $41,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefiting Children’s Hospital Foundation.

 

Crest Fresh Market’s management led the way by encouraging customers and associates to join together in raising funds for pediatric research, education and clinical care to ensure Oklahoma’s children have a chance to live happy, healthy lives.

 

This family-owned grocery chain was founded by Nick Harroz in 1946. Today, Nick’s son, Bruce Harroz, is the new generation of leadership and is continuing to follow his father’s teachings with more stores and larger variety. Bruce and his wife, Tina, have brought growth and development to the company expanding to seven different store locations in the OKC metro area with store number eight under construction in Norman.

 

“With one visit to Children’s Hospital, we instantly knew we needed to do our part for the Children’s Hospital Foundation,” said Tina Harroz. “What the Foundation is doing is vital for the children of Oklahoma.”

 

The funds raised through the campaign will go to help miracle children like, Maddison. Maddison was born with four major heart defects and severe lung defects, causing pulmonary hypertension. She has undergone multiple procedures to repair her heart and provide blood to her lungs. Several more procedures will be necessary to increase the size of her lung arteries and lower the pressure in her lungs. Because of fundraising efforts like Crest Fresh Markets campaign, Maddison is able to receive top-notch care from world renowned physician-scientists right here in Oklahoma at the Children’s Hospital.
