Full-service CRO establishes a team goal to raise funds to fight breast cancer

SAN DIEGO – Oct. 17, 2013 – Synteract, Inc., a full-service, global contract research organization (CRO), will participate in “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” fundraising walk at Balboa Park in San Diego, to be held Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013 at 7 a.m. PDT. The CRO will join the fight for breast cancer through team participation and donations to benefit the American Cancer Society in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event brings together employees, friends and family members.

“Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events held by the American Cancer Society to raise money for breast cancer research and care. Synteract will participate in this non-competitive 4-mile walk to help fight the disease with research, information and health services for breast cancer patients. The CRO strongly encourages employee participation and donations. All money contributed and raised will benefit the American Cancer Society in its long-term efforts to fight the disease.

“Synteract is dedicated to help the American Cancer Society in fundraising, and grateful to have such a committed team giving back to the community,” said Trisha Vonder Reith, senior director, marketing communications at Synteract. “Our mission at Synteract is centered on supporting the innovation and development of better therapies in healthcare and bringing medicines to market to provide a better future for patients. With the joined efforts of our employees, friends and families, we are pleased to be able to support that mission here in our community through direct participation in this great event.”

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. There are more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today. The American Cancer Society welcomes supporters like Synteract.
