More Ways We Give Back
St. Louis Dragon Boat Races
2016 was Abstrakt’s first year participating in the Annual St. Louis Dragon Boat Races. Proceeds of this event benefited Operation Family Help — a Signature Healthcare Foundation initiative to assist families of patients with financial challenges by providing services such as therapy, equipment or transportation. Our team had so much fun participating in the competition, supporting a good cause and spending a great day on the water. After the success of last year’s event, we are excited to participate again in 2017. This year the races will be held Saturday, June 24th at Creve Coeur Lake. The festival will be filled with fun competition, food, drinks, live music and fun activities for kids and adults!
Previous Fundraising Events
700 Miles to Hope Virtual Ride
In October 2014, Abstrakt hosted the first ever Virtual Ride for the Matthew and Andrew Akin Foundation. The Matthew and Andrew Akin Foundation has brought hope and strength to families with children suffering from HLH since their founding in 2010. For the fourth consecutive year, founder Justin Akin rode with fellow supporters on their annual fundraising and awareness ride, 700 Miles to Hope. Through Abstrakt’s efforts in the virtual ride we raised $4,500 towards the foundation’s total donation of $350,000 to the HLH Center of Excellence.
