Next Monday is Labor Day. It traditionally honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made, and unofficially signifies the end of summer. How fitting that we scheduled a week of fun events to honor our employees and highlight some of our recent accolades.
On Tuesday, our California office celebrated THMED’s recognition in the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies with a delicious Mexican food buffet, Spotify tunes, and photo booth shenanigans. The California office is primarily Fidelis Partners recruiters covering the Western United States and members of our Accounting and Marketing Communications teams.
On Wednesday, the Medestar division took the day off to attend a Texas Rangers baseball game. The team organized a successful donation stand near the stadium, where our own Dan Rixon played guitar for baseball fans walking by. We successfully raised over $350 to fund childhood cancer research before enjoying a day at the ball park. It’s amazing to see everyone’s dedication to our charity partner, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
On Thursday, the entire Texas Office was treated to an ice cream social to celebrate their recognition as a Best Place to Work in North Texas and the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies. We had a photo booth, ice cream sandwiches from pokey o’s and watched a particularly entertaining video of our CEO on Love Connection. It’s always a hit!
One of our core values is “Want to Win and Have Fun.” We know that the key to building a growing and admirable sales organization is the level of engagement and empowerment the employees feel when coming to work every day. That is why our leadership team seeks to create and foster a culture that celebrates hard work, achievement and camaraderie. Check out some photos from our week full of celebrations and end-of-summer fun!

Alex’s Lemonade Days is an annual event, hosted the second weekend of June, in which thousands of supporters nationwide host lemonade stands to help fight childhood cancer. This event has raised more than $15 Million for pediatric cancer.

Raising Cane’s event
Friday, June 10th: Raising Cane’s, located at 7955 N MacArthur Blvd, Irving, TX 75063, joined the team and contributed 15% of sales to the THMED ALSF Fundraiser for any customer who mentioned Lemonade Days when ordering. THMED was able to spread the news to the community and other tenants in our corporate building raising a total of $139.14. The Raising Canes family was also fundamental in hosting the events during Lemonade Days, as they donated over 10 gallons of lemonade to THMED to use for lemonade stands.

Saturday, June 11th: What goes better with lemonade then a juicy hamburger? THMED and Chip’s Old Fashioned Hamburger partnered together to hold a successful lemonade stand through the rain and the scorching sun raising over $764.80 We were blown away by the generosity of both the Chip’s staff and the patrons who spent the time to not only donate, but learn more about ALSF and the staggering statistics of childhood cancer.

THMED is partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer research. Our goal is raise $8,000 this year to fund a full month of research.
Every year, an estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. That’s about 700 new kids affected every day. And yet, childhood cancer is vastly and consistently underfunded. Less than 5% of the federal government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers each year.
Kids with cancer don’t have time to wait. Your donation will go to research seeking lifesaving treatment. The money you give has the potential to make a huge difference for these kids and their families. Please join THMED in the fight to end childhood cancer!
We have three events coming up and we need YOUR HELP to make them great!

If you are unable to attend but would like to make a purchase anyway, you may contact May Usman via email at May.Usman@medestar.com on how you can purchase without being present.
- Friday , June 10th ALL DAY – Raising Cane’s located at 7955 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving, TX will be donating 15% of the day’s profits to the THMED Fundraiser for any purchase made.
