Almac Teams up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
October 16, 2007
Almac Clinical Technologies announced today their partnership with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Almac and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) share a common commitment to the advancement of human health and hope to aid in finding a cure to leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.
Almac will be heavily involved in several major events organized by LLS. ‘Light the Night’ is one of many walks that attracts patients, survivors, families, friends, and those who want to be a part of finding a cure. Participants work to raise money in the months previous to this walk, and celebrate their efforts with a red and white lit balloon parade. In addition to Almac being a major sponsor of the event, Almac employees will be involved as volunteers and participants in the walk.
‘Team in Training’ is the world’s largest endurance training program and the Society’s signature fundraising campaign. Almac will be participating as a Gold Partner in the event and will also be sponsoring employees as they participate with the program to prepare for and ultimately complete a marathon, half marathon or triathlon.
As a leader in the clinical trial industry, Almac is committed to personal and financial involvement in efforts to advance the research and development that takes place withing the Society. Jim Murphy, President and Managing Director of Almac Clinical technologies commented on the partnership, “Almac is proud of it’s affiliation with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and is very hopeful that we can help them in their efforts to find a cure.”
