White Cap Builds Upon Legacy of Support for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's Mission to Treat and Defeat Childhood Cancer
ATLANTA, Nov. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- White Cap Supply Holdings, LLC ("White Cap") is proud to be named the top fundraising team in Atlanta and the number two multi market team in the U.S. for the Sept. 25, 2021 virtual St. Jude Walk/Run to benefit the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children.®
The annual St. Jude Walk/Run takes place each September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Supporters from across the nation came together virtually this year to fundraise and create awareness for childhood cancer research and to provide immediate financial relief for the children and their families. Thanks to fundraising events like the St. Jude Walk/Run, and ongoing donations from our teams and our partners, St. Jude can embark on its strategic expansion plan, which includes tripling its global investment to impact the more than 400,000 kids with cancer around the world each year.
"Because of support like this, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food," said John Stegeman, CEO of White Cap. "We are committed not only to the children of St. Jude, but also to helping advance research and treatment for future generations to come."
As a long-standing partner of St. Jude, White Cap is humbled and honored to have achieved this standing, as it displays the strong commitment of our people to our company value of practicing service towards our customers, communities and each other.
