Each year our Absolute family of companies focuses on making a difference by participating in the Annual UMass Medicine Cancer Walk. This marks the 8th year TEAM ABSOLUTE participates in this fantastic fundraising event. The UMass Medicine Cancer Walk is the largest fundraising event in central Massachusetts, and is dedicated to improving care and treatments for those suffering from cancer.We recently attended the kick-off breakfast and we were so pleased to be honored as the 2nd highest fundraising team from our walk last year. Of course, this means we want to be the #1 fundraising team this year!
During the past year, I’m sure we could all tell stories on how this terrible disease has affected us or someone we know. It has really hit home in our Absolute family with the passing of our friend and colleague, Don Detenber. Don was an inspiration to us all. He faced his battle with cancer head on for many years without letting the disease dictate how he lived his life. In the opportunities we had to visit Don after he retired, he was always more concerned with how you were, inquiring about your family, friends, and the company, never wanting to talk about himself. If we attempted to inquire about his health, he would stop us abruptly with “I didn’t invite you over to talk about me!” We will be walking in the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk this year in Don’s memory.
We invite all our employees, customers, suppliers, friends, relatives, acquaintances, and any person who simply wants to be a part of this great cause to join our team. We need your help. Walk with us. Donate. Ask others to do so.
