Orchid Employees Raise Money and Awareness for Cancer Organizations

Posted: Monday, September 12, 2016

This summer brought many opportunities for Orchid employees to participate in fundraising walks and programs.

Orchid’s facility in Farmington Hills, MI participated in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk in Detroit, MI. The team walked 5 kilometers and raised money through “Lunch for Breakfast” and raffle fundraisers for the foundation.

Our Arab, Alabama location participated in Relay for Life for the third year and is proud to be among the top fundraisers in Marshall County! We relayed to honor and remember several of our employees and family members. Proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

Orchid in Oregon partnered with Team Bottoms Up for the Colon Cancer Coalition 5k to raise awareness and increase screenings for Colon Cancer in our local community. An employee suggestion prompted Orchid Oregon to participate in the coalition due to their personal connection to the program as well as the locality of the funds raised from the program. Orchid Oregon was happy to rally together to help support a fellow employee as well as the local community.

Thank you to everyone that helped make these events and fundraisers possible with your participation and encouragement!
