At Morguard, we strive to build a sense of community in more ways than one. Giving back to the local communities where we operate completes the necessary cycle for which we stand and that’s why we’ve partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help fund cancer research. We are pleased to share with you an update on our team's most recent involvement in the LLS Light The Night Walk events.
On October 8th, the teams from Barrett Walk and The Savoy attended the LLS charity walk at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia. We would like to thank Malcolm and Keisha from The Savoy for their participation and for helping raise $200 towards our overall fundraising goals. Every dollar makes a difference to eliminate cancer!
Barrett Walk had a blast at the Light The Night event, and we thank Morguard employees Erica and Tifanie for participating along with their awesome young helper, Makeline! We are grateful to Barrett Walk for raising $400 for LLS, and also for their involvement with a St. Jude’s Leukemia patient every month. Tifanie said, “The best part about our experience was getting to see all the survivors who have beat these nasty diseases.”
On October 22nd in Cary, North Carolina, our team members from Perry Point and The Lodge at Crossroads participated at Kola Booth Amphitheatre. We are very pleased to report that Team Perry Point raised $885 dollars, with more donations still coming in! Leasing consultant Nicole said, “The Light the Night Walk was unlike any other fundraising event we’ve ever been a part of! All you could see were red, white and gold lanterns that glowed in a long line of supporters walking. It was an amazing experience.”
The Lodge at Crossroads team, appropriately named The Carolina Cancer Crushers, raised almost $300 in donations, and all eight of their leasing team participated. They too were moved by seeing so many cancer survivors, young and old, who are living proof of the value behind the LLS mission.
“It was everyone’s first time attending and we all felt in awe of all the support that LLS has gained over the years. We would love the opportunity to participate in years to come.” - Lakendria, The Lodge At Crossroads Community Manager
We are so proud of our Morguard teams and all they have achieved in the fight against cancer.
Working With a Company That Gives Back
It is embedded in our company culture to strive to create a better place to live, work, and make a contribution to important causes. We strengthen each community by invigorating the ties between people and organizations, and by paying it forward. Our Light The Night Walk involvement has been successful in not only raising funds, but also by enabling our employees to serve a greater purpose.
“The Light the Night Walk was unlike any other fundraising event we’ve ever been a part of! ” - Nicole from Perry Point
