BENEFITING: KATHLEEN F MARKS MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
In 2013, each day about 1500 people in America will die from cancer. A stark reminder for many, and motivation for some.
The Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation, a non-profit public charity, believes that research is the key to unlocking breakthroughs in cancer treatment and potentially a cure. Founded to do just that, The KFM Memorial foundation raises funds for cancer research as well as for patients in financial need due to the cost of treatments. The KFM Philosophy is doing something good should be fun, and everything we do we “have a hoot giving cancer the boot”.
For the month of January, The Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation will be collecting donations for operational funds for 2013. Every dollar raised up to $2013 will be matched as a personal donation by Ryan Schadel, President and CEO of Labor Smart, Inc., (publicly traded under ticker LTNC). This is an incredibly generous gesture to start off 2013 on a giving note and donations will be taken up until midnight on January 31st.
Mr. Schadel commented, “I would like to invite other executives and leaders across the country to partake in this opportunity to support a high integrity non-profit like KFM. Every dime donated to this fine organization is spent in a responsible manner that puts cancer on the defensive.”
In an effort to start 2013 on a giving note, Mr. Schadel has issued a challenge to other CEO’s and executives to Personally Match with $2013 out of your personal accounts, or start a fundraising campaign for Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation on FirstGiving.Com if you feel you can raise even more!
Fundraising Events Like the Successful Annual KFM Halloween Masquerade Ball to be held in Oct. 2013 Hosted By The KFM Memorial Foundation will benefit Cancer research in areas that are most in need of the funding, As a non-diagnosis specific foundation KFM adheres the motto “We do not discriminate, we hate all cancer equally”
