We all know someone whose life has been changed by breast cancer.
Lanham, MD (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
Thompson Creek Window Company, the mid-Atlantic’s leading home improvement replacement products company, today announced they raised over $40,000 for the 2011 Susan G. Komen Maryland Race for the Cure, solidifying the #2 overall fundraiser position in the Maryland Team Challenge and the #1 leading fundraiser spot among like-sized company teams. Additionally, two of the company’s executives, George Schaub and Brian Wuest, were the overall #3 and #4 individual fundraisers, respectively.
Over the past 3 years, Thompson Creek raised nearly $100,000 for Komen, and is especially proud of this year’s stellar results. The company’s 84-person team had been aggressively fund-raising for only one month, and is proud to be able to contribute so significantly, while remaining ever-aware that no amount is too small. 2012 plans are already underway, with even more aggressive goals.
Rick Wuest, president of Thompson Creek, said, “We all know someone whose life has been changed by breast cancer. Ten years ago, my mother’s race for a cure ended after a thirteen-year battle with this terrible disease, which for me, makes this the most personal of all the charities in which we are involved. We appreciate the opportunity to contribute in such a substantial way to this worthy cause, and I thank all those who supported us in our fundraising efforts.”
