Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
The journey to end breast cancer can start with a single step, according to the American Cancer Society. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from breast cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.
For the sixth year in a row, JHM employees from local Atlanta hotels participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. A number of JHM associates have friends and family who have been touched by this disease so they walk either in memory or in honor of their loved ones. Several JHM employees along with family members and friends met on Saturday October 6 at Centennial Olympic Park to honor breast cancer survivors and to help raise money for the fight against breast cancer. So far over $526,000 was raised by all participants at the Atlanta walk.
Michelle Hunter, Regional Human Resources Manager, who helped organize the JHM team said, “JHM Hotels has a company goal of Keeping Our Promises to the Community by getting involved in our neighborhoods and communities, using our time, talents and resources to meet the needs of those around us in tangible ways. It was an honor to participate in this worthy cause that affects so many women and their families in our community and beyond.”
