Apex Systems Achieves $1 Million Raised for American Cancer Society

RICHMOND, VA – JANUARY 31, 2020

Over the past decade, Apex Systems and its employees nationwide have helped lead the fight against cancer as a member of the American Cancer Society Partners Against Cancer program.

With hundreds of members across the U.S., the program provides companies and organizations from all industries the opportunity to support the American Cancer Society’s efforts to celebrate cancer survivors and raise awareness and funds through its signature fundraising events.

“At the ACS our mission is to save lives, celebrate lives and lead the fight for a world without cancer but this isn’t something we can do ourselves, it takes incredible partners like Apex Systems who join us in this fight.” said Brant Woodward, American Cancer Society Executive Vice President.

Apex Systems has been a Partner Against Cancer since the American Cancer Society was adopted as their corporate philanthropy in 2009. Apex employees participate in signature American Cancer Society fundraising events such as Relay For Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Employees also volunteer at American Cancer Society Hope Lodges across the country, which provide a home away from home for cancer patients traveling to treatment. In 2019, Apex hit an incredible milestone of one million dollars contributed to the American Cancer Society.

“Like so many others, cancer has touched too many people in my life, and I’m proud to work for an organization with people who want to change that. The Apex community is doing their part in helping to save more lives. Our employees have been committed to this cause since 2009, and I’ve been left in awe multiple times after seeing the results of their creative and well-executed fundraisers! It seems fitting that we hit such a major fundraising milestone, $1 million, in our 10th year supporting ACS, “said Erica Woods, Director of Contractor Programs and Philanthropy.

Events like Relay For Life, unite communities to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and provide an opportunity to take action for lifesaving change. Dollars raised allow the American Cancer Society to help people facing the disease today, educate people about how to reduce their risk for cancer or detect it early when it’s the easiest to treat, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations.

“The partnership between Apex and The American Cancer Society has been a natural fit over the last 10 years. Our employees have so much enthusiasm and passion for helping others. Hitting this milestone is a testament to the discipline and commitment of our employees and a cause to celebrate. I am proud to be a part of Apex; an organization with employees that truly give back. We are committed to our partnership with ACS and we look forward to the future and what we can accomplish together.” said Michele McCauley, Senior Vice President of Human Resources.
