Relay for Life
American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life cancer fundraising organization started in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours straight around a track in an effort to raise money to fight cancer. Since then, the organization has grown to raise nearly $5 billion to support the fight against cancer. Contributions go toward research, the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge® housing, Road to Recovery® patient transportation, Look Good Feel Better® self-image treatments, and Reach to Recovery® survivor support programs. In 2014, Uniform Advantage donated $1 from the sale of each “Purple Butterfly” print scrub top and jacket toward the fight against cancer. Their corporate UA team participated in the April 2014 Plantation, FL fundraising walk that featured a Sesame Street theme. Total donation was over $11,000 including $4,500 from the scrub prints and additionally, they were also a Silver Sponsor. In 2015, UA was a Silver Sponsor for the 2nd year in a row and contributed over $13,000. Their corporate UA team participated in their fundraising walk event again and their theme was Farmville. Since 2012, UA has donated a total of $11,050 to the I Cure, I Care foundation. To learn more, please visit www.icareicure.org.
