Flexecution, a national retail service company headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, U.S., with a regional office in Manchester, N.H., will serve as the title sponsor for the seventh consecutive year of the Fitness for a Cure event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on March 17 in Lowell, Mass., U.S.
Festivities will include a daytime family event and evening gala, attracting more than 1,100 guests and raising an estimated $600,000 for the hospital. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is celebrating 50 years as one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
“On behalf of our entire team, it is truly a privilege for Flexecution to serve as the ‘Miracle’ sponsor again in 2018, says Larry Thibodeau, senior partner of Flexecution. “Each of us has been affected by cancer in some manner but it’s unimaginable to think of a child with cancer. It’s for this reason the Flexecution team is honored to be able to provide support to a great organization like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”
Thibodeau learned about St. Jude and the Fitness for a Cure event after his dear friend’s son was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor, a type of pediatric kidney cancer, and treated with a St. Jude protocol at a New Hampshire hospital. The child is now cancer-free.
“Knowing that it was the protocol developed at St. Jude that saved his life has had a long-lasting impact on me and my entire family,” says Thibodeau.
