K2 Logistics & Strategic Warehousing Join The Parkinson Association of Minnesota (PAM) Team!

New Business Alliance will help to raise funds and awareness

EAGAN, Minn., April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- K2 Logistics, an industry leader focused on single-source supply chain management, knows the significance of teamwork. In that spirit, K2 Logistics, headquartered in Eagan, announced today its K2 Cares program has joined the Parkinson Association of Minnesota (PAM) Team. Also joining in the fight against this debilitating disease is Strategic Warehousing, an Eagan based inventory management and warehouse solutions provider.

"We are very enthusiastic about the potential our K2 Cares program may have to improve the lives of people with Parkinson's disease, which currently affects at least one million Americans," said Tom Lehmann, chief strategy officer for K2 Logistics. "We are delighted to join this team by pledging to support this charitable cause any way we can through our nationwide network of K2 employees, volunteers and valuable business partners like Strategic Warehousing."

K2 Cares and Strategic Warehousing will provide support in this market by sponsoring the Twin Cities Walk for Parkinson's disease, scheduled for Saturday, May 3. Former Minnesota Twins pitcher Bert Blyeven and his wife Gayle will serve as the honorary co-chairs for this annual walkathon at Wolfe Park in St. Louis Park. Bert's father, Joe, had Parkinson's disease, and the Blylevens are committed to raising funds to support finding a cure. Last spring's walk raised more than 50 thousand dollars.

"Our chapter's ability to raise funds in the fight against this debilitating disease just got stronger," stated Jackie Christensen, President of Parkinson Association of Minnesota. "Community partners like K2 Logistics and Strategic Warehousing are solid citizens. We thank them for joining our team!"
