Run for Reach

As an Ottawa-based company, we at Nitro IT Business Solutions consider the community to be our utmost priority for one simple reason, and that is the opportunity to give back to a community that has always supported us.

This is why Nitro IT Business Solutions is very proud to have sponsored this year's  Reach Canada event.

For over 30 years, Reach Canada’s work to improve the lives of people with disabilities in the communities of Eastern Ontario is nothing short of inspiring. We at Nitro want to ensure their work continues to flourish and to benefit those that need their assistance.

Nitro recognizes that with Reach Canada’s support, equality and justice issues for disabled persons are addressed in a positive, inclusive manner at the community level. This has been the ethical factor behind Nitro’s ongoing support of Reach Canada.

As an IT solutions provider, Nitro is assisting Reach Canada with the upgrading of their IT infrastructure. Also, as Reach Canada is a charitable organization, Nitro has arranged for the following:

· A 50% reduction in the cost of hardware and software to be supplied by Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, and Symantec. 

· A donation of $20,000 of Nitro implementation services to ensure that Reach Canada’s new IT infrastructure is built according to industry best practices.

These donations have made it possible for Reach Canada to afford to move into the twenty-first century with a reliable and efficient technology environment. As a result, Reach Canada will be able to continue to advocate for and support Canada’s disabled citizens. 

Thus, we at Nitro IT Business Solutions challenged you to “Make a run for IT.” Although we are not professional athletes by any means, we challenged all of you to run with us, or even against us, in a friendly and competitive way to help Reach Canada, and to earn, perhaps, a few bragging rights as well.

Here is our team from this year's event:
