Why We are Participating in Making Strides

Breast cancer is a cause that is personal to so many people at our company. That’s why we’re joining the nation’s largest network of breast cancer events — the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. We’ll raise money and awareness and together we can continue to save lives.

The American Cancer Society is an important resource for women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer. We owe it to those women to support the organization that does more than any other for them by funding innovative research and providing free information and services.

We are proud to be participating in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and thrilled about the difference that our associates and their families are making to save lives from breast cancer.

NATIONAL WELLNESS MONTH

August is National Wellness Month and considering the delta variant and any other variants of COVID that may arise, we must be even more vigilant about our health and the state of our wellness.  How well we are is totally within our control, as wellness is a process of making choices to achieve a healthy, happy and fulfilling life.  If you haven’t begun to focus on your personal wellness, let National Wellness Month be the catalyst to creating healthy habits that focus on self-care, managing stress, relaxation and finding happiness and a sense of calm in the most basic of activities, such as walking and deep breathing.
