Over a Decade Supporting the Susan G. Komen Foundation
At Ware Malcomb, we believe in the importance of giving back to our local communities. We have been supporting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation since 2012. This year we raised $13,017 with the help of 145 participants including Ware Malcomb team members, family, and friends across nine offices. Our goals are to raise awareness, fund vital research and provide support for breast cancer patients and their families.
In addition to our Ware Malcomb team members, friends and families, we received several contributions from corporate sponsors. We want to thank these generous organizations and partners:
- Michael Murphy
- Deb Smith Shaw Contract
- Trazo Drafting Service
- Colleen M. Nolan, Landscape Architect
Throughout the three month campaign, our offices hosted fun, engaging events to bring everyone together and reach our fundraising goals. These creative gatherings include companywide Bingo night, activity relay race and BBQ, day with off pay raffle, bake sale and more!
To cap off our fundraising events, our local Southern California team members attended the More Than Pink Walk in Orange County on September 24th. Our team members walked in honor of those affected by breast cancer and demonstrated their support for this worthy cause! Ware Malcomb team members from offices across the Americas gathered together to walk in their regions to show support for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
As an 11-year breast cancer survivor and leader at Ware Malcomb, I felt called to create something positive, after something that was personally very difficult. One year after my diagnoses in 2012, I lead our first Komen team. I am so proud of Ware Malcomb’s decade long commitment of supporting this deserving charity. In 2022, both myself and Vice President, Interior Design Ted Heisler joined the Komen Orange County Leadership Committee to further assist Komen in their mission to create a world with out breast cancer.
With our contributions and the help of 9,456 other teams, the Susan G. Komen Foundation raised $8.8 million for this year’s campaign. We’re proud to be part of these efforts to support Komen’s mission as #WMOneTeam to help end breast cancer forever. To learn more about the organization and participate, visit the website.
At Ware Malcomb, through our WM Community program, we are committed to providing philanthropic opportunities and give aide to those in need. The Susan G. Komen Foundation campaign is just one of the ways our team members come together to give back to our local communities.
