In February 2012, our Richland office held a “Taco Feed” to support our local chapter of Junior Achievement. We raised $271 and were presented with information about Junior Achievement’s efforts in our local schools while our employees happily munched away at their tacos. Then, on February 27, ten employees dressed in tie-dye (and some even donned wigs!) to bowl as the “Grateful Dade” at Junior Achievement’s only annual fundraiser, the Celebrity Bowl. Each employee set a goal to independently raise at least $100, and they beat their goal with a total amount of $1,056 raised!

A breast cancer survivor, Terry wholeheartedly supports other Dade Moeller & Associates employees faced with breast cancer, either in their own lives or in the lives of loved ones. “Breast cancer can be beat,” says Terry, “and if I can beat it, others can too. We need to build each other up.”
On August 22-23, 2008, Dade Moeller & Associates sponsored a team of twelve employees and their families to walk in the annual Portland to Coast Relay, the largest walking relay in the world and a fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society. Calling themselves “The Walking Dade,” the team covered 127 miles, with each walker taking part in two legs of the relay and walking between 3.52 and 7.79 miles per leg. Raising $1,960 for the American Cancer Society, the team wore T-shirts with the names of family, friends, and coworkers who have been personally touched by cancer (survivors and victims). In 2006 and 2007 Dade Moeller & Associates sponsored a team of runners that participated in the relay from Mt. Hood to the Coast, also raising money for the American Cancer Society. This is the first year Dade Moeller & Associates has had a “walking” team participate in this event.
Health Physicists Rob and Susan Winslow visited Tracy Kintner's second grade class at Christ the King school in Richland for a 50 minute demonstration on March 4, 2011. The Winslows brought radiation detection instruments and personal protective equipment to give the students a hands-on look into the science of radiation protection. The students learned that some everyday items like bananas and certain rocks emit radiation, and they watched their teacher dress up in a protective suit.
Dade Moeller is headquartered in Richland and is a major employer in the Tri-Cities. The company believes in adding value to the local community through educational activities such as school presentations. The Winslows are 18-year residents of the Tri-Cities.
