CIRCOR Aerospace Sponsors “Relay for Life” Team for the American Cancer Society

May 28, 2008

CIRCOR Aerospace Products is proud to sponsor Team Big M.A.C. (Mad About Cancer), comprised of CIRCOR Aerospace employees, their family and friends, in the American Cancer Society’s annual 24-hour “Relay for Life”, planned for May 31st through June 1st at La Sierra High School in Riverside, California. “The funds raised will enable the American Cancer Society to expand their services to cancer patients and their families, to offer more educational programs that will reduce people’s risk of getting cancer, and to expand cancer research programs,” added Christopher Celtruda, Group Vice President for CIRCOR Aerospace.

The “Relay for Life” is an annual American Cancer Society event held in communities throughout the United States. It offers members of the community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of participants camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path through the duration of the event. Relays are an overnight event and can last up to 24 hours in length.

The CIRCOR Aerospace Big M.A.C. team has collected donations and held various fundraising events to move toward the team goal of $6,000, surpassing the original goal of $3,000. “This is the first year CIRCOR Aerospace has participated in the event and employees are talking about plans to make it even bigger next year”, said Bess Ruano, Team Captain.

Celtruda added, “This event fits CIRCOR’s Health & Wellness Philosophy that the health of the company begins with the health and wellness of our employees. We are committed to promoting healthy living for our employees and their families by facilitating access to competitive wellness programs and high quality health care that promotes a healthy workforce and company.”
