Workplace Giving Program at Panther Expedited Services, Inc. selects the
Prevent Cancer Foundation as Beneficiary
ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The Prevent Cancer Foundation is delighted to be chosen by Panther Expedited Services, Inc. as a recipient of their workplace giving program.
Panther, a leader in premium air and ground transportation headquartered in Seville, Ohio, employs over 375 people and enjoys a contractual relationship with over 2000 drivers. Founded in 1992, Panther Expedited Services has grown to the largest independent provider of premium logistics solutions in North America. Each of these employees and contractors will have the opportunity to donate money to the Foundation to help further the Foundation's mission to prevent cancer and detect it early through cutting-edge research, education and awareness programs and community outreach to the underserved across the country. Panther has graciously pledged to match a percentage of their collected donations.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation (formerly the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation) was started in 1985 when Founder and President Carolyn Aldige first understood the power of prevention to defeat cancer - and recognized that too few of the country's resources were used to promote cancer prevention research or education. Today, it is one of the nation's leading health organizations and has catapulted cancer prevention to prominence. Through healthy lifestyle choices, you can reduce your risk of breast, cervical, colorectal, lung, oral, prostate, skin and testicular cancers.
Since its inception the Foundation has provided more than $97 million in support of cancer prevention and early detection research, education and community outreach programs. The Foundation's peer-reviewed grants have been awarded to more than 300 scientists from more than 150 of the leading academic medical centers nationwide. This research has been pivotal in developing a body of knowledge that is the basis for important cancer prevention and early detection strategies.
