Leading supply chain solutions provider announces fifth year as St. Jude Walk/Run sponsor
“I’m always so proud to see AIT’s teammates live out our company’s values by giving back,” said AIT President and CEO, Vaughn Moore. “And it’s hard to find a more worthy cause than helping to end childhood cancer and making sure St. Jude families never pay a dime for treatment.”
Throughout September, Childhood Cancer Awareness month, teammates across AIT’s global network aim to raise at least $30,000, an amount the company has pledged to match. To raise the funds, teammates will take part in more than 20 scheduled Walk/Run events around the world, many of which will be held virtually, as well as other online and socially distanced activities.
“Despite the unexpected challenge of a pandemic during last year’s campaign, our fundraising teams came through for St. Jude’s children and families in a big way,” Moore added. “So, I have no doubt we’ll hit the mark again in 2021.”
Since AIT announced St. Jude would be the company’s flagship charitable alliance in 2017, AIT teammates have brought together friends, family, and community members in support of the cause, ultimately raising more than $225,000 for the hospital.
St. Jude has spent the last 50 years developing treatments that have helped increase the overall childhood cancer survival rate from just 20% to more than 80%. The hospital also educates care providers in countries around the world and freely shares the discoveries it makes in partnership with the World Health Organization.
