Personiv Team summiting Kullu Valley in Himachal Pradesh India

In their second such effort, members from each of Personiv’s four global sites set out from the Kullu Valley in Himachal Pradesh, India, on September 11 to buttress their efforts to raise money for the non-profit Miracle Foundation. On September 14, the team completed the challenging 3-day hike through the Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas as ‘One Personiv’. The trek took the team across river rapids, steep boulder walks and two glaciers to an altitude of 14,050 feet between the Veo Dibba and Indrasan peaks. 

This year’s trek was the company’s largest yet with a total of 50 Personiv team members participating including 9 from Personiv’s Austin, Texas headquarters; 10 from the site in Manila, Philippines; 13 from Coimbatore, India and 18 from Gurugram, India. The global group came together as one under the leadership of Personiv CEO David Lesniak.

Along the way, trekkers encountered physically demanding terrain, breathtakingly beautiful vistas and raised more than $5,000 for Miracle Foundation. The global non-profit provides life-changing resources for orphaned children around the world by advocating for their rights, providing them with education and shelter, and working to reunite them with family whenever possible.

“One of Personiv’s foremost cultural pillars is the social responsibility initiative of ‘Giving Back’.  We firmly believe in supporting the communities where we live and work in ways that will make the highest impact. it’s something we like to call ‘Being Human’," David Lesniak said. “This donation to Miracle Foundation will help children in need on a global scale.”

The team’s goal of raising $5,000 for the nonprofit is nearly within reach, with fundraising to close at the end of the month. Donations can be made on Personiv’s fundraising page at any time.
