There are few families out there who have not been touched by cancer in one way or another
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 18, 2007
Crystal Springs, a DS Waters bottled water company, will sponsor the "Crystal Springs Water Girls" team, consisting of Crystal Springs' employees and their friends, during the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer in Atlanta, Georgia, from September 29th through September 30th, 2007.
The Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer is a 10 to 30-mile walk across Atlanta, which raises funds to benefit metro Atlanta breast cancer organizations. Employees of the Crystal Springs bottled water brand and their friends will join over 1,200 members of the community in the 5th annual walk. To date, over $2.6 million has been raised by the Walk for Breast Cancer. The goal of the Atlanta 2-Day Walk, is to donate at least 70% of all money raised to the 2-Day to Atlanta-based breast cancer support, research, financial assistance and awareness programs.
Elaine Causey Sperling and Katie Kang, two of the Crystal Springs bottled water brand employees participating in the walk, took special interest in this particular fundraising event because of personal experiences with breast cancer. Katie's grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer a decade ago but, thanks to early detection, the cancer was removed and has been in remission since. Elaine's cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer and recently underwent a double mastectomy.
"There are few families out there who have not been touched by cancer in one way or another," said Elaine Causey Sperling, Accounting Supervisor. "As a member of the 'Crystal Springs Water Girls' team, it is our hope that participating in the walk will help play a hand in enabling early detection and prevention for other families."
