Santa Fe Annual Charity Run at IAM

Jul 02, 2013
Santa Fe has once again held its annual charity run on behalf of Johns Hopkins cancer research. The event always coincides with the IAM conference so, this year, the 5k route was around Washington DC.

 “Our Charity Run is an event that Santa Fe employees and our industry partners look forward to each year,” said Robert Cormier, Managing Director of  Santa Fe Malaysia. “We established The Johns Hopkins Fund almost a decade ago and we are very much proud of this initiative. Johns Hopkins is one of America’s pre-eminent health care institutions, and its researchers have made a tremendous contribution in deciphering the mechanisms of cancer and discovering new treatments. We are thrilled to be able to contribute to Hopkins’ work in this area. The Charity Run helps us not only raise money for the cause and the fund, but also to build the hope that one day cancer will be defeated and many human lives saved.”

The event is part of Santa Fe’s continuing commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (as part of its UN Global Compact registered Respect programme) and its support of Hopkins in its quest to find innovative ways to diagnose and treat various forms of the disease.  Over its years of involvement the company has raised around US$1.2million for the cause.  While in Washington, Robert Cormier, Bill Cain and Lars Lykke Iversen had the opportunity to visit Johns Hopkins in Baltimore where they got to meet some of the research staff involved.  Robert said that it was wonderful to offer to fund a piece of vitally important equipment for the organisation.  “The doctor was over the moon,” he said.  “It was great to see his reaction.”

Colin LaBrie won the men’s event; Lisa Drewry won the women’s.
