Dubuque Data Services completes Live Healthy Iowa 2016!

Dubuque Data Services is on the move for 2016!  We joined the Live Healthy Iowa challenge to eat healthier and get more active.  The active part has been mostly indoors thanks to Mother Nature this year!  We like to eat at work…a lot, so we changed our potlucks to some better choices like veggie trays, fruit boats and low carb wraps.  The best part is that we worked together as a team, just like we appreciate that you are on our team!

Red Nose Day

Yesterday was Red Nose Day, which is a fundraising event designed to help children and young people living in poverty, while having fun doing it. Dubuque Data Services wanted to show their support for the cause, so some employees donned the big red noses and had some fun. For more information on how you can help, visit

Dubuque Data Services Easter Holiday 14

Dubuque Data Takes the Challenge

The Iowa Sports Foundation has a program called Live Healthy Iowa and every year they challenge Iowans to live healthier through the 10 Week Wellness Challenge. Participants track their exercise and try to make healthier food choices. Dubuque Data Services had 5 teams participate this year and they all made efforts to move more, whether it was taking the stairs at lunch, an extra walk in the evening, or maybe just playing outside with their kids. This program even motivated an employee to do a 5k run and she is looking forward to another next month. To celebrate all their extra efforts, DDS took the participants to a Dubuque Fighting Saints hockey game, where they were able to relax and enjoy the evening together.

Congratulations, Lidtke Motors on your 60th Anniversary!

Dubuque Data Services would like to congratulate Lidtke Motors on their 60th anniversary! All of us at DDS are proud to have been able to serve their dealership since 2002, and look forward to many more years of a successful business partnership.

Check out the great write-up they received in the Madison Originals Magazine!

Dubuque Data Services Cancer Awareness Week Blankets At Wendt Cancer Center

Dubuque Data Services showing community support!

Dubuque Data does it again showing community support!

Thanks to all the Dubuque Data employees that pitched in last week to help support our Cancer Awareness Week. Instead of focusing on just Breast Cancer Awareness this October, DDS focused on the  Prevention, Care, and Support of all types of cancer. Employees had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items donated by fellow employees, add ribbons to the cancer support tree to show their support for many different types of cancer, and make tie throw blankets to be donated. Besides the 10 tie blankets, Dubuque Data also donated cash, a cart, 10 Chemo Caps, 10 Washcloth Sets, and 8 Gas Cards. In the end, Dubuque Data Service donated almost $900 in cash and items. These donations were split between the Cancer Research at the University of Iowa (prevention), the Wendt Cancer Center (care), and the Hospice of Dubuque (support).

Dubuque Data Services Community Cancer Awareness Week Blankets

Community support during Cancer Awareness Week at DDS

To show our support for Cancer Awareness Week, members of the Dubuque Data Services family have sharpened their scissors and flexed their fingers to create hand made blankets for the Wendt Regional Cancer Center community. Here at Dubuque Data Services, we enjoy taking time out of the day to support friends, families, and communities impacted by cancer. Click here to find out more about Wendt Regional Cancer Center.
