(PHOENIX, July 10, 2015)- To celebrate surpassing the $30,000 goal for the company wide “Take a Hike” initiative, Pioneer Title Agency Elden branch employees Sarah Landry and Andy Fox hiked Passage 34 of the Arizona Trail with Flagstaff leaders including, Flagstaff Mayor Jerry Nabours, CEO of Greater Flagstaff Chamber Julie Pastrick, and Executive Vice President of Alliance Bank Sherry Slayton. These leaders were joined by employees of Pioneer Title, Alliance Bank, local Realtors® and friends. “It was incredible to share part of our company efforts with the local leaders in Flagstaff. We are so grateful for the support of these leaders as well as our partner, Alliance Bank,” said Pioneer Title Agency President Keith Newlon. “Knowing that we hit our $30,000 goal to help the Arizona Trail made this an even bigger celebration.” To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pioneer Title Agency, the Arizona-based, family owned business partnered with the Arizona Trail Association – also celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Arizona Trail- to “Take a Hike,” a first-ever fundraising and employee wellness challenge utilizing the Arizona National Scenic Trail. The Arizona Trail is a continuous path across the state of Arizona and is open to all forms of non-motorized recreation, including hiking, running, backpacking, horseback riding and mountain biking (outside designated wilderness areas). Through the unique partnership, Pioneer’s team of more than 375 individuals set a goal to raise at least $30,000 in 2015 to support the Arizona Trail. The goal was achieved on June 30th. The community minded team also collectively hiked, biked, ran or rode all 800-plus miles of the Arizona Trail.
