Great Success When the Medtronic Mission in Motion Team Organized Jump for Dystonia Event

Last week the Medtronic Mission in Motion Team organized a Jump for Dystonia event at the Medtronic Tolochenaz headquarters in Switzerland.
The « Mission in Motion » team is a group of colleagues representing Medtronic as a social entity which aims to act for its community.
Nathalie Courtine, one of the initiators of the event, explains: “Our role as Mission in Motion Ambassadors is to allow all employees to fulfill the 6th tenant of the Medtronic Mission : “To maintain good citizenship as a company”.
To reach this goal, we believe there is no better way than to roll up your sleeves! We organize various projects to allow employees to “put our mission in motion”, such as volunteering activities to help associations or charities, or run donation events. The successes of the last projects show that with the motivation of employees, it is possible to make a difference in our community!”
The Jumping took place in the cafeteria where people were asked to contribute with a Jump for Dystonia and have  their photo taken. Dystonia Europe’s Monika Benson joined the event, and together with the Mission in Motion Ambassadors, they  encouraged the Medtronic staff to jump and distributed Dystonia information leaflets and Jump for Dystonia pens. By the end of the day the team had collected 222 jumps. Medtronic contributed with € 4.-per jump to support Dystonia Europe in our work to continue raise awareness of dystonia. We thank the Medtronic Mission in Motion Team and all the staff at Medtronic for all the great jumps and such valuable support.
