PAWS AND STRIPES
In the Community
Senspex proudly supports Paws and Stripes, a nonprofit organization that provides service dogs for wounded U.S. military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Paws and Stripes helps veterans to live the full and rich lives they deserve. The veterans are involved in every aspect of the program -- facilitating healing, building self-confidence, increasing their bonds with the dogs, and developing the tools to maintain the dogs’ training long after graduation. The entire program is funded by grants and donations and the veteran is not obligated to pay for the service dog.
The dogs come only from local shelters, and highly experienced service dog trainers work with the veteran/dog teams. These dogs are not pets, they are service dogs with the complete protection and rights granted by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
I/ITSEC 5K WALK/RUN/ROLL
Senspex is honored to sponsor the 5K Walk/Run/Roll at I/ITSEC in Orlando, Florida. Proceeds from the annual I/ITSEC 5K support the Camaraderie Foundation and I/ITSEC STEM Initiative. The Camaraderie Foundation’s mission is to provide healing for invisible wounds of war through counseling, emotional and spiritual support for all branches of Military Service Members, Veterans and their families. The I/ITSEC STEM Initiative strives to raise awareness for the nationwide effort to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and math among young people and to promote their enhanced instruction in our schools. Senspex is proud to participate and sponsor this event and the associated charities.
CARRIE TINGLEY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Every year, the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation hosts the annual Mud Volleyball Tournament in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation assists families with their medical and daily living needs and also offers long-term assistance, education and programs through funding for research scholarships and quality of life programs such as a summer wheelchair sports camp and scholarships for therapeutic horseback riding and dance lessons.
Senspex annually takes part in the event, and sponsors teams participating in the charity tournament. At Senspex we proudly support the mission of the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation.
Ivan Moreno, a key business development team member for Senspex Inc., completed the 2015 RAGNAR Relay Series Florida Keys race. The race, which took place February 6-7 2015, stretched from Miami to Key West. Ivan ran this 200-mile race on behalf of Senspex, representing the entire company. The
Operation Give Back (OGB) Team was composed of active military servicemen, former military members, Wounded Warriors, Gold Star Family members, and a few civilians. Ivan was invited to run by CSM Jose Garcia-Aponte, the founder of the OGB for Wounded Warriors Program.
The OGB Program’s main objective is to help Gold Star Families, Wounded Warriors, and children that lost parents in combat. The OGB Team ran this race to raise awareness of the program and its worthy cause of helping those brave warriors and families for their great heroic deed and sacrifices that will never be repaid.
RELAY FOR LIFE
For more than 65 years, the American Cancer Society has been finding answers that save lives – from changes in lifestyle to new approaches in therapies to improving cancer patients’ quality-of-life. In fact, no single nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization in the US has invested more to find the causes and cures of cancer.
The 2012 Relay For Life was held in Barstow, California. Senspex’s Ft. Irwin employees helped raise over $118K. We had 22 out of 31 employees participate by assisting with water delivery, traffic control, medical chase vehicle drivers, road blocks, filming and finish line refreshments.
SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES
At Senspex, we believe in supporting local businesses. Every quarter of the year, Senspex conducts fun and unique team building exercises to engage our employees and also support our local businesses. Most recently, the Albuquerque office employees went to the New Mexico Escape Room. The team worked together using their individual skill-sets to solve puzzles in a race against the clock. Senspex is proud to be able to support local business and encourage our team's growth.
