Crown employees support breast cancer research

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Crown Worldwide Moving & Storage hosted an office fundraiser, netting $3,250 in one day. That amount was matched by Crown for a grand total of $6,500.
Crown encouraged employees to dress in pink and to donate to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. As a reward for participation, staff members received a free professional chair massage. Winner of the best pink costume was Debbie Joaquin, with runners up Ronda Najera and Denise Lohman.
Many Crown employees have been affected by breast cancer including Janet Bowen who said "All support for Breast Cancer Research and Treatment is much needed. Awareness for regular checkups saves lives it may be your life or that of a loved one."
Crown's CEO, Robert Bowen, stated "This campaign would not have been possible without the hard work of Nancy Menne, Simon Mason and Rick Hosea. It is important for all women to be diligent about having their annual mammogram as well as performing their own self examinations. Breast cancer if detected early is curable, and it is important that people have regular checkups and go to the doctor if they notice any changes."
