Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Alan Walker, General Manager of Anthony & Sylvan Pools’ East Coast Division, proudly presented a check in the amount of $1,522 to Jackie Renk, mother of Matthew Renk and founder of the Matthew Renk Foundation for Brain Cancer Awareness. “All of us at Anthony & Sylvan are proud to support such a wonderful organization and an important cause. We hope that our contributions can help the Matthew Renk Foundation support other families going through such a difficult time,” Walker said of Anthony & Sylvan’s donation.
Friends and employees of Anthony & Sylvan Pools were able to raise $761 for the foundation during the corporation’s annual March Madness charity basketball game, held on April 11, 2012. Anthony & Sylvan Pools matched the amount raised at the game, for a total of $1,522, which was then donated to the Matthew Renk Foundation for Brain Cancer Awareness on April 27, 2012.
The foundation was formed after parents Dave and Jackie Renk lost their son Matthew to a brain tumor at age 15. The Renks hoped that the foundation would generate increased awareness of childhood brain cancer and provide support for families facing similar ordeals.
The Matthew Renk Foundation for Brain Cancer Awareness uses donations like the one from Anthony & Sylvan Pools to create programs that help educate the public about childhood cancers and also help fund brain cancer research. One of the foundation’s primary goals is to provide direct support to families dealing with both the emotional and psychological impact of the illness on families as well as the large costs associated with treating it -http://www.matthewrenkfoundation.org
