Why I Walk
Today we are celebrating Team Dexter in Portland. This company team was one of our top team raising $1,000. We chatted with Michelle at Dext who shared more about the company and why they walked.
Tell us about your company?
Dext just turned 3 years old! We are a capital finance company located in Lake Oswego. The owner, Kyin Lok started the company because he wanted to provide loans and leases to companies and people that normally run into a lot of red tape with bigger banks. Dext currently works with those in the Medical field, Hospitals, doctors, dentists, etc. And we are currently branching out to the Health and Wellness field.
Why did you register for the Walk? I personally have two of my best friends that live with Lupus and at Dext we have a couple people that live with it every day. So when I had the opportunity to get Dext involved in our community joining up to contribute to ending Lupus was high on my list.
How are you connected the lupus community? Myself, I am new. Besides having friends fighting it, I am new being directly involved. And Dext is about the same, new, but happy to be involved.
What does the walk mean to your team? It means a lot. Not just because most of us are personally touched by Lupus, but because we are so excited that we are in a place that we can come together as a team and join the walk to end Lupus.
How did your team celebrate on 10.16? A big lunch!
