American Airlines Employees Raise $1 Million for American Cancer Society
Date:9/9/2009

FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Each of the past five years, American Airlines employees have laced up their sneakers to walk or run in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life to raise money and awareness to help the fight against cancer. Thanks to their efforts, more than $1 million has been donated to the American Cancer Society.

Relay For Life is an overnight event in which teams across the country secure pledges from friends and family, then camp out at local high schools, parks or fairgrounds and take turns running or walking, at times for more than 24 hours, to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

"In a month after our first event, American Airlines employees raised more than $18,000," said Roger Frizzell, American's Vice President - Corporate Communications and Advertising. "Fast-forward five years, and we have surpassed the $1 million mark. This was accomplished entirely through the dedication, support and passion of American's employee volunteers who are committed to help everyone who has been affected by this terrible disease."

In 2006, American Airlines became a member of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life National Corporate Program. Companies that commit to at least 50 teams participating in Relay For Life, in multiple states, each year can become members of the recognition-based program. In the last five years, almost 3,200 American employees from around the world, including London, Jamaica and Canada, have participated in Relay For Life events.
