OSHKOSH, Wis. (June 7, 2017) - There isn’t much that Wisconsin-born folk like more than The Green Bay Packers©. But when you mix a Packer Coaching Legend’s cancer foundation, and a local cancer care facility coming together to support cancer research and treatment - that about does it.
This year, Aurora Cancer Care Center and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation teamed up for the 9th annual Lombardi Walk to Tackle Cancer. This walk supports local cancer treatment centers and helps to further cancer research in our area with the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation matching 50% of all dollars raised.
Arrowhead Systems has been a long time resident of Eastern Wisconsin, and this year we made it our mission to help the people in our local community. After coming across information on the Lombardi Walk, we decided to do our part to help sponsor this great event, especially since all of the funds raised at the event are kept local.
For our first year participating in the Lombardi Walk, we had almost 10% of our employees attend and we raised a total of $405! “We are grateful for the number of employees and family members that showed up to support a great cause,” says Human Resources Manager – Amanda Van Der Linden. “Most of us have been witness to cancer and how it can affect families financially and emotionally. On Saturday [June 3rd, 2017], we came together to walk and raise money to support a local foundation that provides care and support for those going through cancer and their caregivers.”
So what’s next on the community calendar for Arrowhead Systems? We are sponsoring a corporate food drive to support a neighboring town - Cambria, Wisconsin - after tragedy struck the Cambria Mill in late May 2017.
