Labconco and the "Race for the Cure" for breast cancer
On August 10th, 2014, many Labconco Corporation employees along with their family members and friends will do their part to help battle breast cancer by participating in the 21st annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Kansas City. Participation comes in many forms. Some will show their support by volunteering to man a water station along the race route, others will be registered to run or walk in the race, and still others may choose to sponsor a race participant.
2014 will mark Labconco’s 4th year of sponsoring a water station along the Race for the Cure route, passing out water to the runners and walkers. It is a great opportunity for Labconco Corporation and its employees to support the community and a great cause.
Jennifer Waisner (pictured in photo, upper right), Customer Service Manager, along with her children and their friends have volunteered each year Labconco has been involved. “For several years, my family and I have volunteered with our company’s sponsored water station at the Race for the Cure. I am happy that we are able to contribute in some way. We have a great time doing it, and find it very inspiring... It is a lot of fun and really a great event!”
Over 20,000 people participate and volunteer at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Kansas City. Since we are at our best when we fight together, it’s great knowing that so many are willing to join in this fight for a cure. With time, with numbers and with perseverance, a difference can be made, so Labconco will continue to come together as a community to join the fight against breast cancer, and offer our assistance in any way we can!
Cart for the Cure is a special, limited edition model of our popular Portable Table laboratory cart. It has all the great features of our standard Portable Table, except the 18 gauge welded tubular steel frame boasts the official Breast Cancer Awareness pink color! The cart also includes an official pink ribbon identification tag. Plus, for each Cart for the Cure sold, Labconco will donate $50.00 to the St. Luke's Foundation to help provide FREE mammograms to women who can't afford them.
