The Medford Branch (NMLS# #9042) definitely walked the walk and epitomized the Evergreen philosophy of family when they recently participated in Walk MS – Walk to Create a World Free of MS 5K. Evergreen Home Loans associate, Valerie Wheeler was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 8 years ago and her family of associates at the Medford branch, rallied behind her to raise money for research toward prevention, treatment and a cure.
The event, held on April 26th in Central Point, Oregon, raised over $13,000 and donations are still being accepted through May 31, 2014. Team Evergreen was one of the top fundraising teams in Southern Oregon. The entire Medford branch showed up with their families and even their furry four-legged walkers proudly wore orange bandanas in a show of unity.
“We’re extraordinarily proud of the Medford Branch. Their actions speak volumes about the way we care about our family of associates,” said David Floan, EVP of Loan Production. “Evergreen is proud to add our company matching contribution and we look forward to supporting our associates within all of the communities they serve.”
