Team Shaw Systems Raises Over $3000 for VCU Massey Cancer Center
Employees and family members from Shaw Systems’ Richmond office raised more than $3000 for the 2011 Massey Challenge by running or walking in the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10K on Saturday, April 2.
The 11-member team designated their run/walk to benefit the VCU Massey Cancer Center, one of just 66 cancer centers out of 1,500 nationwide designated by the National Cancer Institute to help lead and shape the nation’s fight against cancer. The team was ranked 20th in fundraising out of approximately 150 teams.
“With a modest initial fundraising goal of $1000, the team was overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity from fellow employees, friends, and family,” said Team Captain Emily Agnolucci. “We are extremely grateful for the show of support. THANK YOU to all who donated!”
Approximately $380,000 has been raised overall in the 2011 Massey Challenge. To learn more about VCU Massey Cancer Center, visit www.massey.vcu.edu.
