TI employees raised more than $46,345 to fight breast cancer through support for the North Texas Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on June 9 in Plano. That is $6,000 more than last year, and TI donated $17,500, making the total amount raised to date $63,845.
With 24 teams and 426 race participants, including those who opted to "sleep in" for the cure, TI fielded the largest corporate team this year and expects to be the largest corporate fund-raiser as well.
“Thank you to all those to who participated in TI's Komen team through walking, raising funds and donating,” said Andy Smith, TI director of corporate philanthropy. “The work you did will have a positive impact on many people in our community.”
The TI Women's Initiative (TI WIN) coordinated TI's Komen efforts this year. The initiative paid race entry fees for the first 10 breast cancer survivors to sign up for the team. TI WIN also urged employees and contractors to wear pink on June 8 to support the TI Komen participants.
The fundraising efforts worked, with TI raising more than $32,000 more than the second-highest fundraising company, PepsiCo.
“I would like to personally thank our team captains for the passion and dedication they demonstrated in building their teams and encouraging participation,” said Nancy Kelly, co-chair of TI's Komen team. “This year was definitely a success, and we could not have done it without them.”
