BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2016
Hello friends of Beazer Homes! Brian Beazer, Chairman Emeritus, and Allan Merrill, CEO, will be running in the Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon on Saturday April 30, 2016. This is Brian's first half marathon and Allan's second, although the smart money is on Brian to be the stronger runner. Yes, he's over 80 and Allan's only now turning 50...but anyone who knows Brian knows that his motto for this race is to "Beat Allan Merrill." You don't have the success in life that Brian has had without setting, and achieving your objectives.
Brian and Allan decided they wanted to use their run to raise money for a great cause. While there are obviously thousands of worthy charities, they decided to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Why? Two reasons: First, the women in both of their lives have contributed immeasurably to their success and happiness. And second, they wanted to support a highly efficient and well regarded organization that would make great use of the proceeds.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. BCRF provides critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship. BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. with an A+ rating from Charity Watch and 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator.
