Los Angeles, CA, October 18th, 2010 – AMS Fulfillment Services management and employees have been greatly impacted by the courageous battle of one of their own against breast cancer. When the opportunity recently arose to support their co-worker, Jean Meyer, by becoming a Run for Her sponsor, AMS employees quickly stepped up.
Over the years the Cedars Sinai Medical Center Run for Her has become a very large charitable event, so large in fact, that the task of creating 5,000 gift bags for participants has become too great for volunteers to handle. Upon hearing about the event organizers’ need for assistance, AMS employees offered to forego their salaries and provide all of the services needed for gift bag fulfillment to Run for Her.
Ken Wiseman, AMS CEO stated, “Jean’s courageous battle is on the mind of all AMS employees as they work on the Cedars-Sinai Run for Her gift bag.” Jay Catlin, President of AMS, went on to talk about the opportunity for AMS to not only provide gift bag fulfillment, but to participate as a team in the 5k run honoring Jean’s strength and determination in the long battle. “We’re thinking of her now as we do this work, and we will be thinking of her when participating in the run in her name,” Catlin said. Catlin pointed out as well that it’s not just AMS Fulfillment donating its resources; the employees themselves are donating their time and energy in assembling the bags.
The Run for Her raises money and awareness of women’s cancers, and it directly supports the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Women’s Cancer Research Institute (WCRI). The run began in 2005 when Kelli Sargent partnered with Cedars Sinai Medical Center in its creation. Kelli was motivated by her mother’s 10-year battle with ovarian cancer, and inspired by her mother’s continued courage. This year the 6th annual 5k run and friendship walk will take place on Sunday, November 14th, at Pan Pacific Park, 7600 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90036. AMS management and employees will be there as caring participants as well as sponsors. More information on the 6th annual Run for Her can be found at www.RunForHer.com.
