Seattle, WA-based SanMar Corp., a supplier of imprintable apparel and accessories, reports that its employees have raised more than $36,000 for breast cancer research. The fund raiser was held in conjunction with the October campaign of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Cities around the country host 5-km, noncompetitive walks to raise funds to fight the disease.
“We are so pleased to partner with the local community and raise money towards such an important and worthy cause,” says Susan Jarvie, human resource manager at SanMar.
The American Cancer Society hosts its annual premier event, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, every October to raise awareness and funds for research and patients who have breast cancer. Since 1993, 3.5 million walkers have raised more than $230 million through the Making Strides campaign.
