Cumberland, RI (September 23, 2010) – The Children’s Workshop has committed to fighting Breast Cancer, one step at a time. The company has formed a team to walk in the Providence Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, October 24, 2010.
“We are in the business of supporting and helping families,” said Margaret Teller, Director of Marketing and Corporate Development. “Unfortunately far too many of our families, friends, team members, and neighbors have been impacted by Breast Cancer so we’ve committed to do our part to fight back. Our team is determined to create a world where one day the children in our care will ask, ‘What was Cancer?’.”
The 3.2 mile walk takes place at the Temple of Music in Roger Williams Park and over 30 employees from both Rhode Island and Massachusetts have already signed on to participate and fundraise. Team TCW has set a goal of fundraising over $10,000 for the American Cancer Society.
The company, which was founded in 1990 by David MacDonald, has also signed on as a Pink Ribbon Sponsor of the Making Strides Walk and has pledged $1,500 to kick-start the team’s fundraising efforts. In addition, teachers and administrative staff are all donning uniforms adorned with pink ribbons to further demonstrate the company’s commitment to fighting breast cancer.
The Children’s Workshop operates 15 early learning centers throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts, meeting the educational, emotional and developmental needs of some 1,500 children daily.
