Nextiva’s passion for supporting our community led to the founding of Nextiva Cares, our charitable arm. It’s also why we made NextCon a not-for-profit conference that benefits a charitable organization every year.
We’ve raised over $70,000 over the past three conferences, and it’s all gone to amazing causes like K2 Adventures Foundation, Bret Michaels’ Life Rocks Foundation, and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
During NextCon19, we made a $10 donation to K2 Adventures Foundation for each use of #NextCon19 on social media. This year, we raised a whopping $21,160 for ‘K2 at the Batcave,’ which was generously matched at their annual Masquerade Ball.
42 kids will get to experience the ‘Batcave’ thanks to everyone who posted using #NextCon19!
In the eyes of K2 Adventures, “There are no disabilities, only possibilities.” This amazing organization is dedicated to serving individuals with life challenges and special needs around the globe with services, support and adaptive equipment that insurance companies often deem “luxury” items. K2 Adventures programs allow participants to live their lives far beyond expectations.
Using adaptive equipment from K2, Kyle Maynard became the first quadruple amputee to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. His 10-day ascent raised money and awareness for wounded veterans as well as Tanzanian school children. Upon his return, Kyle won his second ESPY Award for Best Male Athlete with a Disability.
