Colliers International | Pittsburgh Walks To End Breast Cancer
Employees from Colliers International | Pittsburgh joined the American Cancer Society in their fight against Breast Cancer this past Saturday, October 11 at North Park. The firm raised over $1,300 for their fourth year participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) walk.
Jessica Jarosz, Vice President of Tenant Advisory Services for Colliers International | Pittsburgh, organizes the company team every year.
“As the Colliers Team Leader for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, I am very proud of my team for donating their time and money, raising funds and participating in the Walk this year!” Ms. Jarosz exclaimed. “It was an honor to walk along with survivors, family members and friends who are all raising awareness and supporting a very worthy cause. This was our fourth year participating in MSABC, and our collective hope is that one day we will finish the fight against breast cancer.”
According to the American Cancer Society website, MSABC is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting more than 300 communities to finish the fight. This year, 134 teams raised over $150,000 just at the Greater Pittsburgh event. Every walk gives the opportunity to honor survivors, raise awareness about reducing risk, and raise money to help fund research and provide access to mammograms for women who need them.
“The Making Strides walk on Saturday was a great event on a beautiful day,” Mark Anderson, Vice President of Office and Retail Brokerage for Colliers International Pittsburgh commented. “Our family had a wonderful time with the Colliers Team raising funds for breast cancer awareness.”
