Arthrex's Making People Better Mission Relayed in the Community
For the past decade, Global Solutions Delivery Project Manager PJ Bimonte has volunteered his time helping to organize and raise funds for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Naples. This year, PJ took on the challenge of Event Lead on the Relay Committee. With Team Arthrex’s full support behind him, last Friday's day-of event fundraising total surpassed $27,000, pushing the Relay total amount raised to $240,000 (and still counting)!
“Working for a cancer treatment company in the past showed me the terrible nature of this disease first hand,” shared PJ. “I ‘Relay’ so that there will be a time when no parent, child, husband, wife or friend ever has to hear the words ‘you have cancer’ again. As an Arthrex team member and also the Event Lead for the Relay for Life of Naples, I can definitively say that Arthrex, as both the community leader in corporate support and a top employee fundraising team once again, is instrumental in leading the fight toward a world without cancer.”
Thanks to team members' fundraising efforts and internal events held at all Southwest Florida locations leading up to Relay For Life, like the annual cupcake sales and charitable games, Team Arthrex raised nearly $18,000 to support lifesaving cancer research and programs for local cancer patients.
We are proud of our annual sponsorship and the hard work our employees, like PJ and all involved, put into this cause each and every year. Making People Better is why!
