A team from California Exotic Novelties raised over $36,300 for the fight against women’s cancers in the 2013 Walk for Hope last week. Team Club CalExotics, the top fundraising team, consisted of company employees and family members who joined 7,000 walkers on Sunday, November 3rd 2013, at City of Hope in Duarte, California, for the annual event. Team Club CalExotics was supported by many companies and people who helped make them the first-placed fundraising team (as of November 5th, 2013).
Jackie White, vice president of sales for California Exotic Novelties, is the Club CalExotics team captain and spearheaded the initiative. She said: “I can’t believe the enthusiasm from everybody involved and the incredible amount of money we raised for City of Hope. My expectations were far exceeded, great job team and a big thank you to everyone who supported us!”
Walk for Hope Los Angeles Presented by Staples is a 5K and 2K Walk that benefits the women’s cancer research, treatment and educational programs at City of Hope – which is a leader in the fight to conquer cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. The annual event was attended by many cancer survivors, family members, members of the media, and community activists.
California Exotic Novelties CEO Susan Colvin said: “This is our second year of involvement with the Walk for Hope Los Angeles and I am so very proud of our team. City of Hope is a centre for cancer research, clinical investigations, and home to compassionate care for those battling cancer. The money we raised will support more research, treatments and education that will help people with cancer everywhere live longer, more fulfilling lives.”
