The Battle Continues
September 2, 2014

On Sunday September 28, 2014, a team of MR Direct employees and friends will join thousands in the annual Toledo Area Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®. This race has grown from 600 participants in 1994 to nearly 20,000 this year. In spite of all this moral and financial support, breast cancer continues to be the most prevalent cancer in the world, affecting both women and men.

This is one tough fight and support is continually needed. Three-quarters of every dollar received through this race event is given to local organizations and hospitals who use the funds to provide screenings and educational programs. The remainder is given to national research efforts.

The staff of MR Direct has pledged to help in this fight and are proud so many of our employees participate both financially and physically in this race event. We challenge our customers and colleagues to join our team as we strive to make a difference in this battle.

By visiting our MR Direct fundraising page on the Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio site, you will have the opportunity to make a donation to this significant cause and join our race team. Any amount you can give brings us one step closer to finding a cure.
