A local charity and a Belton business celebrated the spirit of giving Tuesday morning.

Back in May, ASCO Equipment hosted its 5th Annual Spartacus Dash fundraiser. This morning, they gifted the funds raised to Aware Central Texas – a non-profit dedicated to preventing child abuse and family violence.

A check was presented to the organization outside the Aware Central Texas offices in Belton.

The Spartacus Dash is one of many charitable fundraisers organized by ASCO, which encourages employees at its various locations to come up with ideas for events to help the company give back to the community.
