Med One Group is not only committed to making a difference in the medical field but also within the many communities we serve. In particular, we enjoy sponsoring or supporting events that directly influence the lives of children.
Salt Lake Bees Prevention Dimensions Kids Day
Since 2005, Med One Group has teamed up with the Salt Lake Bees (the L.A. Angels Triple A affiliate) and Prevention Dimensions to provide a day at the ball game for students. This game is a reward for Utah elementary school students who participate in the Prevention Dimensions program, which is a set of resource lessons designed to give students a strong foundation of effective violence and substance abuse prevention skills. Every year over 12,000 students attend the baseball game, enjoying the ballpark and gaining skills for a safe and drug-free life. Prevention Dimensions has become a powerful tool for teachers to increase protective factors in students' lives.
CrossFit O.U.R. Wodsomniac Event
The CrossFit O.U.R Wodsomniac event is held every year at a gym in Draper, UT. This event helps raise funds and support for Operation Underground Railroad, which works to rescue child sex slaves around the world. CrossFit O.U.R’s purpose is to engage the CrossFit community through events, memberships, and exposure to support as much of the O.U.R’s overhead costs as possible, with the goal that donations could then go directly to rescuing and supporting survivors. Med One was proud to be a part of their 2021 event by producing video content that will be used to promote future events to earn sponsorships and donations for the organization.

For the past few years, Med One has been privileged to be a presenting sponsor at the annual CHOICE Humanitarian (The Center for Humanitarian Outreach and Inter-Cultural Exchange) Open. This golf tournament raises funds and awareness for the fight of ending extreme poverty in Kenya, Nepal, Bolivia, Guatemala, and Mexico. This past year the event raised over $100K for the organization. CHOICE Humanitarian improves quality of life through a bottom-up, self-developing village-centered approach. Med One is proud to play a vital part in the growth of this fundraising event in the fight of ending extreme poverty.
Med One sponsored STEM night with the SLC Stars. This event brought out over 3,000 kids to participate in many STEM fun, interactive concourse exhibits for kids, focusing on how science, technology, engineering and math can relate to sports. The night ended with a post-game autograph session with the players.
For Families of Active Military is dedicated to increase awareness of the hardships that military families experience and to give back to those who sacrifice for our country. FFAM collects and delivers boxes of food to military families stationed at Fort Irwin and Camp Pendleton. Med One was privileged to donate our truck for deliveries and $1,000 in gift cards for military families to purchase turkeys.
In 2005 the Sleep Smart Drive Smart organization was founded with a goal to raise awareness about the dangers of drowsy driving. Troy Tait, Senior Vice President of Customer Care for Med One Group, was a co-founder of the Sleep Smart Drive Smart initiative. Med One has been a supporter from the beginning, and participates in several events throughout the year educating the public on the importance of safe driving. Members of the SSDS board visit elementary schools and educate them through hands-on activities. Sleep Smart Drive Smart later partnered with Zero Fatalities, an organization dedicated to raising awareness about dangerous driving habits. Together the organizations hope to educate people and communities throughout Utah to lower the number of fatalities related to drowsy driving.
