Gary Rixson Passionate for Feeding America and Charity Miles Takes to the Street

Gary Rixson continues to run for charity with the help of the popular app, Charity Miles. This year, he will be supporting Feeding America, which provides warm meals to over 46 million Americans every year.

Gary Rixson, Region Vice President for Balance Innovations and Charity Miles advocate, continues to focus his passion for running and giving back. In the past, Rixson has supported Wounded Warrior Project, Special Olympics, ASPCA, and Stand Up to Cancer. This year, he’s added another charity to the list: Feeding America.

When asked why he chose to support Feeding America, Gary Rixson stated, “There are millions of Americans that go hungry every night in the US and this organization is making a real impact.”

“I also felt,” added Rixson, “that it would be a great fit since Feeding America is supported by Charity Miles. Corporate sponsors of Charity Miles, like Johnson & Johnson, donate .25 cent for every mile I run to charities like Feed America. Its another great way I can give back and it keeps me focused on my runs.”

According to Wikipedia, “Feeding America is a United States-based nonprofit organization that is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies. It is the third largest U.S. charity and the nation’s largest ‘hunger-relief and food-rescue organization.’”

Besides being a Charity Miles advocate and health enthusisast, Rixson is also an accomplished business professional and entreprenuer with nearly 20 years of business development experience working with fortune 500 companies.

Rixson joined Balance Innovations as Region Vice President in 2016. Balance Innovations provides unique software solutions to large retailors that lowers the cost of accepting cash.
