As a company that is very involved in the community, Custom Direct is extremely happy to have its employees, under team leader, Jackie Urlahs, participating in this event. With approximately twenty employees along with friends and relatives participating, Custom Direct has already raised over $2000 andthe number keeps rising. To show its true appreciation for the cause and goodwill of its employees, Custom Direct has donated $500 to The American Cancer Society through the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that will take place on October 26, 2008 in Baltimore, Maryland.
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a cause solely based on donations. Founded by four women, two of whom are breast cancer survivors, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer raised over $50 million in 2007 alone to be used for breast cancer research, increasing education and awareness, ensuring that women have access to mammograms and continual care, providing free programs, and bettering the quality of life of those battling breast cancer. Additionally, almost 500,000 people from over 130 communities across the country participated in the walk last year. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a wonderful way to provide hope and heighten awareness about this tragic disease.
With a momentum building in donations and the enthusiasm for the walk growing, Jackie Urlahs had this to say about the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, “I’m really excited to see the response in participation from our associates, and I’m very proud of the amount we’ve raised in such a short time. I’m hopeful that we will continue to participate in this walk on an annual basis and raise the bar each year.”
