DALLAS – TSP (Technology Service Professionals), a leading provider of information technology services to Fortune 500 companies, sponsored employee participation in the Susan G. Komen® North Texas Plano Race for the Cure® 5K this past weekend, proudly doing its part to support the fight against breast cancer.
“A large part of TSP’s vision is investing time and money into the communities where we live, work and play. We make a consistent effort to rally employees around local events and causes that are near and dear to our employees. We had a great time walking together, and were proud to support the Susan G. Komen North Texas foundation,” said Rick Skaggs, co-founder of TSP.
The race took place on June 13 at HP and The Campus of Legacy in Plano, TX. Fourteen TSP employees participated together on team #TSProckstars.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created. The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
TSP’s HR Manager Kristi Suddock encouraged TSP to get involved with Susan G. Komen North Texas because her family has been personally touched by breast cancer. Kristi has been involved with Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for eight years, and has also walked in the Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day (a 60-mile event) for five years, as well as staffing and volunteering for the event. Her family connection is one of a few featured in Komen’s 3-Day Stories.
“Breast cancer has affected my family significantly – my father passed away from breast cancer ten years ago, and both of my sisters are breast cancer survivors,” said Suddock. “I’m proud and grateful to work for a company that values charitable giving and community involvement to support this cause that’s so close to me.”
