Justin McGuire is a programmer at Vivid Image, and he selected Relay for Life of McLeod County as the recipient of $250 in February. Relay for Life is an annual community-based fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Every year volunteers sell luminary bags in honor of or in memory of loved ones with cancer. Thousands of bags are lit along a path that event participants walk for hours to raise money for this very worthy cause. This year’s event will be Friday, August 4, 2023 at the Masonic West River Park in Hutchinson.
“I chose Relay for Life because it raises money to fight all forms of cancer, even the lesser known forms, instead of focusing on one particular type of cancer.”

Charitable giving is determined by our staff! Every month one or two Vivid Image team members select a non-profit that means a lot to them. $250 is granted to the non-profit of their choice. Then, throughout the year if staff choose to volunteer at least 25 hours of time, they select another non-profit to receive $250, and the staff member also receives $250 in recognition of their contribution to the community. By the end of this year we’ll have been able to make a difference in the lives of others by donating at least $5,000, and likely upwards of over $11,000!
