Fun is the Focus at Charlotte Knights Game
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Charlotte had a special evening of recognition and fun at the April 29 Charlotte Knights Baseball Game and as a community service partner, Jackrabbit was part of the festivities at the game. 37 Jackrabbit staff joined 713 others wearing t-shirts in celebration of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Charlotte programs that provide families of children suffering from critical illness with amazing and beneficial resources.
Jackrabbit’s CEO Mark Mahoney was on-hand to help welcome everyone on behalf of Jackrabbit Technologies and to throw out the first pitch. Jackrabbit’s mascot – a 10-foot-tall mascot named Zippy – ‘helped’ throw out the first pitch and greeted children and parents attending the ballgame.
- Jackrabbit’s Zippy mascot for the game even has a unique story that makes him a perfect fit for playing the role of Zippy. Dave Stogdill, former Charlotte Bobcats, Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks mascot, runs the Literacy program for Charlotte Hornets. Read more about this connection with children.
Beautification at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Charlotte is going to be a long-lasting project for Jackrabbit. Now planned are both Spring and Fall beautification projects that are planned to cover a variety of scopes and sizes.
Charity and Partner Have First Opportunity to Move Past COVID-19 Challenges
Jackrabbit Technologies culture has roots in giving back. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Charlotte partnership provides a way that Jackrabbit can offer not only the facilities and programs support the partnership includes, it provides a way for the Jackrabbit team to come together with hands-on help in beneficial areas.
“Jackrabbit believes there is no greater role than the one that enables a company to help families care for their children – especially when their children are ill. Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte does just that by providing facilities, resources, and caring people to families with children being treated in Charlotte’s hospitals. Our industry serves children by providing classes for everything from dance to child care so our child-centric focus is aligned with that of RMH. We’re excited to find fun ways to fulfill some of the physical needs of the Charlotte House and to promote the excellence of its program to the public.” – Mark Mahoney, Jackrabbit CEO and Co-founder
The partnership was born as COVID-19 dug in, but that didn’t deter Jackrabbit.
Jackrabbit even has Ronald McDonald House connections within its staff! Dan Heise shares a personal experience that his own family had with a Virginia Ronald McDonald House and one of the many reasons he is thrilled to be part of the Jackrabbit Technologies team.
