A Beautiful Pink Day
September 30, 2014

It was a picture-perfect day for a run. Temperatures were in the mid-70s and bright sunshine splashed its warmth and hope over the record number of participants in this year's Toledo Area Komen Race for the Cure®. In the mix of over 20,000 entrants, was a team composed of MR Direct employees who volunteered to participate in this event. We are extremely proud to note that nearly half of our staff participated, even more made a financial contribution.

We know many of our colleagues and customers participated in this worthy race as well, or plan to when events are scheduled in their hometowns. We also know that many of us, or someone we are close to, has suffered from this dreaded disease. It's encouraging to know that strides have been made toward finding a cure, but we are all aware that much more research needs to be done.

Of course we hope the solution is found before next year's scheduled race, but if not, we pledge to continue doing our part by participating in events around the Toledo, Ohio area for as many years as necessary. We'd like to remind everyone that donations can be made online at any time, by visiting the Komen Race for the Cure website at: www.raceforthecure.org.
