Dallas, Texas; December 16, 2016 – On January 28. 2017, for the second year in a row, a team of COMPAREX employees will participate in The Big D Climb, in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Climbing 70 stories to the top of the Bank of America Tower in downtown Dallas, each team member also helps fundraise in support of this life-saving organization.
The Big D Climb in Dallas, sponsored by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), is the largest stair climb fundraising event in North Texas, with participants racing up 70 flights of stairs to raise money for blood cancer research. This January, COMPAREX employees will once again be making the climb to the top of the building. The LLS has been funding cutting-edge research for blood cancers, as well as programs to help patients access treatment since the 1950s. Due to the smaller addressable market, the large pharma companies struggle to make the ROI case for investing in research and development for these types of cancers. The LLS subsidizes research by providing grants to research teams around the country.
Leukemia and lymphoma are diseases close to the hearts of many individuals, but especially those at COMPAREX. John Havlick, Executive Vice President of COMPAREX North America, and Cameron Holloway, Inside Sales Marketing Supervisor at COMPAREX North America, are both survivors. COMPAREX operates on a global scale, but its employees are encouraged to participate in their local communities and are given a day off to spend volunteering at the charity of their choice.
