Norfolk-based marketing agency Reed & Associates (R&A) has raised over $19,000 during its September fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for its annual Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. R&A has now donated a total of $85,000 in funds for the children’s hospital since 2010.
“I’ve seen first-hand how much families need and appreciate the support St. Jude provides,” said Ashley Knepper, co-owner and president of Reed & Associates Marketing. “I’m amazed by the hospital’s ability to provide patients and their families with quality amenities and am proud we are a part of St. Jude’s village helping make that possible.”
R&A’s team of 13 put in the extra effort for their fundraising this year by reaching out to personal networks and local business owners for a total of 113 contributing donors. Knepper was able to secure donations from The Lawson Companies and 80/20 Burger Bar, who contributed seven percent of the funds raised.
