Team Exela believes that raising awareness and funds for important causes is part of our corporate social responsibility and, more importantly, part of good citizenship. This month we are trying to do our part to raise funds for breast cancer research. Additionally, our team will wear pink on Wednesdays and champion the cause on social media and in our internal communications.
In 2018, Exela has participated in multiple fundraising efforts for causes that include disease research initiatives and Red Cross disaster relief assistance. Recently, the team participated in a 5K & 10K run and raised over $20,000 for the Orthopaedic Institute for Children, an organization comprised of medical professionals and volunteers that provides care for patients with musculoskeletal disorders, regardless of a family’s ability to pay for the care.
This week we will be posting links from leading cancer research websites and campaigns. The first is “Know Your Lemons,” a campaign started by Corrine Ellsworth Beaumont, PhD, for the Worldwide Breast Cancer charity completely focused on breast health education. We encourage you to visit the website and learn more: https://worldwidebreastcancer.org/
