At CST Brands, we strive to be positive, contributing members of the communities and neighborhoods where we live and work. Our outstanding team members and customers make that pretty easy to do.
In the United States, our customers and communities help us raise millions for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Big Brothers Big Sisters each year. In addition, CST Brands employees donate to the United Way and contribute thousands of volunteer hours to community projects that support early childhood learning, food banks, affordable housing, meal deliveries to the elderly, animal rescue, clothing drives, literacy efforts, elementary school mentoring, cancer prevention and many other worthwhile causes.
In 2014, CST Brands launched its own signature fundraising event, the Corner Store Country Run 5K. The 10-city series stretches from Montreal, Quebec, to San Antonio, Texas. Since its inception, the series has generated 40,000 registrations and raised more than $2.6 million for Big Brothers Big Sisters and local children's charities. In 2015, CST was selected as the Big Brothers Big Sisters Community Impact Award winner.
In tandem with the 5K series, CST launched a Wellness Warrior program to improve health and wellness amongst team members. Collectively, the first group of 14 Warriors lost more than 150 pounds and improved their overall health age by 19 years.
