There’s only one thing better than doing a good deed, and that’s getting paid for it. We at FootSteps Marketing are committed to building and maintaining our corporate culture and our mountain community. That being said, we know all too well the ever-increasing cost of living here in the Roaring Fork Valley and have decided to offer our team the chance to actively be a part of building and maintaining both.

Not only will this day out of the office get us out of the office, away from our computers, into our community, but it also provides our team with a chance to see our co-workers and company in a new light.
