“Natural” is the word that comes to mind when president and founder, Larry O’Toole, talks about his decision to incorporate charitable work into the culture at Gentle Giant Moving Company. Larry believes every business should be involved in making the world a better place -- it should be as routine as processing payroll or scheduling hours. In 2005, Larry and his team established the Gentle Giant Charitable Foundation to strengthen their community involvement.

Barry Adelman is no rookie when it comes to long-distance running; he has completed more than 10 marathons on his home turf of New York. Running was far from a favorite hobby of Barry’s when he began to hit the streets back in 1978, but he teamed up with a friend and law partner and they set out to enjoy good weather and run a couple miles each day. After consistently running those few miles, another friend recommended increasing their distance. Accepting the challenge, Barry and his running partner boosted the distance of their runs and – to their surprise – enjoyed every extra mile!
