Cintas Canada Supports Spencer West
300 km We Walk 4Water raises money for Free The Children’s Water Initiative
CALGARY, Alberta -- May 13, 2013
Cintas Canada (NASDAQ: CTAS) in Calgary is pleased to support Free The
Children and the We Walk 4Water Initiative, a 300 km trek from Edmonton to
Calgary during which, Spencer West, a double amputee, is traveling on his
hands and in his wheelchair. The walk raises money for Free The Children’s
year-long Water Initiative aimed at bringing permanent sources of clean water
to more than 100,000 people throughout the world.
“Cintas partners in Canada have gone above and beyond in their support for
Free The Children,” said Leslie Molin, Marketing Manager. “Water is such a
vitally important part of a thriving society and creating permanent sources
for water will not only help girls go to school and women earn a living, but
will reduce illness,” she added.
During the 11-day journey, Cintas Service Sales Representatives will be
wearing Me to We “We Walk 4Water” t-shirts, and asking their customers if
they’d like to contribute to the Water Initiative. Cintas is an official
distributor of Me to We apparel, which is available through the Cintas
catalogue. Since 2011, Cintas has raised more than $30,000 in support of Free
The Children and its mission to empower youth to fulfill their potential and
be agents of change.
