AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
In 2009, Apex Systems chose the American Cancer Society as the primary charity on which a majority of our donations and time would be focused. Cancer has affected many Apex employees, contract employees and clients, which made the American Cancer Society the best choice for making a difference in each of our communities.
As the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life has over 4,700 Relays that take place across the nation each year. Many of those races are held in Apex’s individual markets. We have encouraged our employees to create teams within their branches for participation in their local Relay event.
In Apex’s first year supporting the American Cancer Society, nearly 100% of Apex’s 49 branch locations participated in their Relay for Life event. With the help of each of our employees, contract employees and clients, Apex Systems’ total contribution in 2009 to the American Cancer Society was over $100,000.
A letter from Gloria Jetter, the Regional Executive Director for the American Cancer Society who worked with Apex Systems, comments on some aspects of Apex’s national sponsorship:
We are incredibly proud to include Apex Systems, Inc. in our crux of volunteers who are committed to helping the American Cancer Society save lives. The Apex team of associates is committed to raising $100,000 through participation in the Society’s Relay for Life. While your team is well on its way of meeting this monetary goal, we are thankful for more than just the dollars raised! We are grateful for the dedication of Apex staff who are true testaments to your company’s values: to do the right thing, make others better, find a way to get the job done, and set the professional standard.
With your help, we will get results. Together, the American Cancer Society and Apex Systems, Inc. will help people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; help people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; find cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and fight back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. Thank you for your perseverance and passion for fighting cancer!
Regional Executive Director
In 2010, Apex Systems will be a National Corporate Team for Relay for Life and we are determined to beat our 2009 goal in 2010.
