As a family owned business, something that’s very important to all of us at Fencemaster is giving back to the community! We’re active in supporting many causes, like eating at Chili’s on St. Jude’s Day and sponsoring a team in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
On October 5, 2013, the Boot Scootin’ Boobies will walk to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Most of us either know someone or are related to someone affected by cancer. The statistics speak for themselves: 50% of all men and 1/3 of all women in the US will develop cancer during their life. (Cancer.org)
The team we are supporting was formed by our salesman John’s wife, Kristin, in memory of her mother. Kristin shares her mother’s three round battle with breast cancer and why she’s passionate about stomping out breast cancer on her blog InDeepH2o.
In 2013, it is estimated that there will be 296,980 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in U.S. women and approximately 39, 620 deaths from the disease. There are much lower numbers in men, but there will be approximately 2,240 men in the U.S. diagnosed with breast cancer, with 410 deaths.
Want to join us in making a difference? We encourage you to join our team, form your own team, or make a contribution. Also, on Friday October 4, the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® is hosting “Pink Out Day.” This is the third year of this tradition, which encourages all Houston residents to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness.
Also, this September 23, Fencemaster will again support St. Jude’s fight against childhood cancer by eating at Chili’s. The restaurant will donate 100 percent of all net profits from Monday, September 23 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
