On May 3, 2009, a team of 73 Phenomenex staff, friends and family came together to fight pediatric cancer. Team Phenomenex was one of the largest corporate participants in the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation’s “Reach for the Cure” event, held in Irvine, California.
Team Phenomenex participated in every way, with members working their way through the Half-Marathon, 10K/5K Run/Walk and 1K Kids’ Fun Walk alongside more than 5,000 other runners and walkers. With team members as young as 9 months old, this truly was a Phenomenex Family event. Distance runners ran, speedsters sped, friends enjoyed a leisurely stroll, and parents pushed strollers along, with each step in the race moving us closer toward curing pediatric cancer.
“As part of our mission to promote the well-being of humanity and give back to our community, we were proud to participate in this event to raise awareness and funds to fight pediatric cancer,” said Bryan Lombardi, Training Manager at Phenomenex.
Through participant sponsorships and donations Phenomenex contributed over $6,000, which will be used to improve the care, quality of life and survival rate of children with malignant diseases. To learn more about the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, please see http://www.pcrf-kids.com/.
