Plexus Worldwide hosted its annual “Chek It Walk” 5K to raise breast cancer awareness. More than 800 people around the world participated in the company’s virtual charity walk, raising $10,000 for Cancer Support Community Arizona, an organization committed to enhancing the atmosphere of support and healing for people impacted by cancer.
“As an advocate of Cancer Support Community Arizona, we were proud to see so many people from our global community join the virtual 5K charity walk for such an important campaign,” said Alec Clark, Co-Founder and President of Plexus Worldwide. “Raising awareness for such a great cause helped us reach our goal and, in turn, helped this wonderful organization that does so much for this community.”
Social distancing measures meant the annual walk was virtual this year, which allowed participants to choose their own route on their own time and log their progress. The event was also an avenue for the company to promote its Breast Chek Kit, a tool that uses sensory touch magnification to improve breast self-exams.
“We were thrilled to partner with Plexus during this event since their company’s purpose has always been to spread health awareness and wellness, a core belief of Cancer Support Community Arizona as well,” said Debbie DiCarlo, CEO of Cancer Support Community Arizona. “Through this donation, we can continue to provide programs and support those affected by this terrible disease.”
The donation will be used toward the organization’s programming to offer in-person and online support for those affected by cancer.
