Philadelphia CureSearch Walk, Presented by Allied Wire & Cable

Allied was thrilled to be a part of the Philadelphia CureSearch Walk on Sunday in Franklin Square!

Hundreds of people showed up to support the event benefiting CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, a non-profit which funds children’s cancer research at hospitals across the US.

NAllied Wire Donates Over $13,000 to CureSearch for Children's Canceratalie Beers, Allied’s Marketing Manager, was on-hand for a formal check presentation during the walk’s opening ceremony. As a presenting sponsor, Allied donated more than $13,000 to the cause.

During the check presentation, Natalie told the story of how Allied came to be part of the CureSearch Walk. She said,

Each year our customers vote to select the main beneficiary of our annual charity week.  This past December, they were inspired by the story of employee, Stephanie Thomas, who lost her 2 year old son Michael to cancer.  In their honor and in honor of all the families here today, on behalf of our customers, Allied Wire & Cable is proud to present this check for over thirteen thousand dollars to CureSearch for Children’s Cancer.  Thank you for all the work you do in our community and across the nation.

CureSearch WalkThe presentation was followed by a balloon-release in memory of those children who lost their battles with cancer, and a special medal ceremony to recognize the brave children currently fighting the disease.

After being honored on stage, the children began the walk, carrying a “These Are The Reasons We Walk” banner, signed with their names and the names of other children affected by cancer.

The day was truly inspirational and Allied could not have been happier to be a part of it all. To learn more, read our full CureSearch press release or visit the official CureSearch Walk website.
