Faygo employees walk to benefit critical programs at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute
Monday, December 16, 2013
Faygo employees, along with family members and friends, took over Belle Isle Park in early October for their Annual Walk-a-thon to benefit the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen of Detroit. The weather didn’t want to cooperate, but that didn’t stop the walkers from going out and supporting their charities of choice.
Members of Faygo’s wellness team recently visited Karmanos Cancer Institute and presented Katy Kaliszewski, Third Party Events coordinator, with a donation from the Walk-a-than for more than $1,500! These funds will support Karmanos’ Friends Raising Funds program. Executive leadership at Karmanos determines where the most critical need is at the Institute at any given time and use the Friends Raising Funds program to help support these needs.
Karmanos is extremely grateful for the dedication and support of Faygo, their employees and everyone else who participated in the walk-a-thon!
