Supply chain solutions frontrunner announces third year as national sponsor of St. Jude Walk/RunITASCA, ILLINOIS (July 23, 2019) – For the third year in a row, AIT Worldwide Logistics will support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as a proud national sponsor of the St. Jude Walk/Run.
Throughout September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, tens of thousands of supporters will participate in Walk/Run events in 65 cities across the United States to raise money for the hospital’s mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Since AIT first selected St. Jude as its flagship charitable alliance in 2017, the company’s teammates have rallied friends, family and community members to help raise more than $120,000 in donations for the hospital, including dollar-for-dollar company matches.
“The work St. Jude is doing to end to childhood cancer is a truly worthy cause, and one that fits into the culture we have here at AIT,” said AIT President and CEO, Vaughn Moore. “Giving back to the community, the places where we all live and work, is extremely important to us. In fact, it’s one of our core values. That’s why, three years in, this campaign is something our teammates look forward to, including me. It’s a great chance to have fun together, while making a difference at the same time.”
In 2019, through more than 20 scheduled Walk/Run events, as well as other fundraising activities, AIT’s national team aims to raise at least $30,000—an amount the company has pledged to match.
Since it opened its doors more than 50 years ago, St. Jude has developed treatments that helped increase the overall childhood cancer survival rate from just 20 percent to more than 80 percent. Learn more at www.stjude.org/together.
