The Select Group to Run Raleigh Rocks Fundraiser to Support UNC Children’s Hospital

Raleigh, NC, March 10, 2012 --( Sheldon Wolitski, founder and CEO of The Select Group, an IT and Engineering recruiting firm in Raleigh, has announced that the company will participate in the upcoming Raleigh Rocks Half Marathon, 5K Race, 1-Mile Race and Kids Dash to support UNC Children’s Hospital. The annual fundraising event will be held April 1 at the PNC Arena, formerly the RBC Center.

The company has invited all staff to participate in the event, which raises funds for UNC Children’s Hospital. As an added incentive, The Select Group will make a donation on behalf of all employees who participate in any of the event’s races. This includes not only employees in the company’s Raleigh headquarters but also those in satellite offices throughout the country.

This is not the first fundraising endeavor that The Select Group has fulfilled to benefit UNC Children’s Hospital. Most recently, the company helped create The Select Group Music Library at the hospital, which was constructed to make musical devices more accessible to patients.

“Since 2001, we have supported UNC Children’s Hospital in various ways,” Wolitski says. “Most recently, it hit closer to home when we found out that the daughter of one of our customers spent six months at the hospital. It was gratifying to hear that the iPods we donated helped make their stay more enjoyable.”
