On Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012, Paladin Attachments made a significant contribution to the American Cancer Society by participating in its Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Akron, Ohio, that raised more than $81,500 for breast cancer research, support and service programs for those facing the disease.
For the second year of what will continue to be an annual company tradition, Paladin Attachments assembled team Digging For The Cure, which was made up of 44 participants (Paladin employees, family and friends) that together raised over $4,400 through online donations, bake sales, ribbon sales and raffles, placing them third out of 198 teams that participated in the Akron, Ohio, event. In the two years combined, the team has raised nearly $7,500. In its 20 years of existence, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk has had a definitive and inspiring impact on millions of lives. With walks taking place in more than 270 communities across the U.S., more than 8 million walkers have participated in raising more than $460 million to fight breast cancer.
