DS2 co-sponsors the 2019 Annual Hunger Run 5K hosted by Bluewater Fitness held on Saturday, April 6, 2019.
This family-friendly event featured live music by Dana Pointe Band, kid's events, and raffles. For the kids, the event included a Kid’s Fun Run as well as a bouncy house. A good time was had by all and the proceeds benefited Niceville's Sharing & Caring.
We had a great time and DS2 shined in the event by having several people place in their respective age groups. Congratulations to Keaton, Megan, Kyle, Joe, and Jody.
Every year in March, the DS2 team hosts a canned food drive within the company to provide for our local neighborhoods through donation to Sharing & Caring of Okaloosa County. This amazing charity provides financial and food assistance to local families in need, and with the increase in unemployment from the COVID-19 pandemic, their services are vital to our community.
DS2 proudly sponsors and participates in the Hunger Run 5k, hosted by Bluewater Fitness, held on April 30, 2022. This year, the theme was “Sock it to Hunger”, encouraging race participants to wear wild and crazy socks in celebration.
Throughout the months of March & April, members of DS2 collected and donated goods that are needed and essential to the Sharing & Caring Niceville operation, including canned goods, dry goods, and monetary funds. Sharing & Caring of Niceville is a non-profit organization that provides food, essential items, and assistance to families in need in the Niceville, Valparaiso, and Choctaw Bay communities.
On February 13th, DS2 attended the All You Need is Love and a Good Teammate event as a Bronze Sponsor, in support of the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast.
DS2 is passionate about furthering the education and skills of our team. Last week, nearly the entire development team at DS2 attended a 2-day group training focusing on React skills. Lead by web development guru, Brad Westfall of React Training, who has been teaching web development for over a decade, this two-day workshop covered React proficiency through guided lectures and project-based learning.
Another great company outing for the books! DS2 and family participated in the Son of a Beach 5k benefitting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation in memory of the crew of RATCHET 33.
