RepairClinic.com® employees rally to support Relay For Life® of Canton event
Canton, Mich. – This weekend, a team of RepairClinic.com employees will celebrate hope, cancer survivorship and a world with more birthdays.
The team will take turns walking the track at the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay For Life of Canton on May 19 and May 20 at Heritage Park.
“We’re thrilled to help foster hope and honor our loved ones who’ve survived and courageously battled cancer,” said Chris Hall, president of RepairClinic.com. “Supporting Relay For Life is truly a company-wide effort. In addition to walking the track as a team, we’ve been raising funds together for weeks.”
RepairClinic.com employees brought in homemade baked goods and treats to share in exchange for monetary donations. The company supported its employees’ generosity by matching donations.
RepairClinic.com’s participation and fundraising efforts are led by RepairClinic Outreach, a group of employees dedicated to making a positive impact, locally and nationally. RepairClinic has supported Relay For Life of Canton for several of the last 10 years. It’s one of many causes that RepairClinic and the Outreach group are supporting this year.. Last month, the group helped put a new roof on the home of an elderly Canton community member as part of the Christmas in Action of Wayne County’s annual event.
In 2012, more than 4 million people will participate in Relay For Life events in over 5,200 communities in the United States and in events in 20 other countries as well, making Relay For Life a truly global movement to end cancer.
