On Saturday, May 23rd, associates from the Columbus operations office joined the Columbus Crawl for Cancer. The annual event held in the Columbus Arena District gave R2 employees the opportunity to come together as a team for cancer awareness and fundraising. The R2 team enjoyed traveling, or “crawling”, from bar to bar where they were given pitchers of beer to enjoy the festive atmosphere.
Crawl for Cancer’s mission is to plan and host fundraising events that support lifesaving research and those affected by cancer. The heart of the idea behind the event is to celebrate survivorship, remember those we’ve lost and push towards a cure.
This year’s Columbus Crawl for Cancer benefited the following charities:
- Cancer Support Community
- Columbus Cancer Clinic
- Nellie’s Catwalk for Kids
- War Against Melanoma
- The Dave Platfoot Foundation
- Peggy’s Wish
- Camp Kesem
