Knoxville, TN -- In keeping with its pledge of completing 25 good deeds to celebrate 25 years in business, Braxton-Bragg’s Marketing Manager, Derek Brodka, represented the company during this year’s St. Jude Walk/Run To End Childhood Cancer on Saturday, September 21, at World's Fair Park in downtown Knoxville.
“As a dad, seeing kids that are befallen with any illness is heartbreaking, especially one as unforgiving as cancer,” said Brodka. “My donation and participation in these sort of local events is just a very small contribution to the massive effort of finding a cure for cancer. No child should ever have to suffer with these diseases, and it was great seeing that many local people turn out for the event. Even a bunch of super heroes were on hand to cheer and interact with the kids before the walk/run.”
Thousands of walkers and runners across the country are raising the funds to support the children of St. Jude. Thanks to this effort, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food... because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Plus, St. Jude freely shares its discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means thousands more children saved around the world, including in your community.
