This past Sunday, October 21, 2012, the staff of Employment Background Investigations, Inc (EBI) joined thousands of other racers to support the Komen Maryland Race for the Cure®. This year marks the sixth consecutive year EBI has supported this great cause as a commitment to our family, friends and co-workers that are inflicted with breast cancer. Our encouragement and dedication is again driven from our co-worker and teammate, Heather Garner who lost her life to breast cancer just over a year ago in August of 2011. Her fond memory is still with us as she continues to be the driving spirit alongside our team.
This year, Team EBI had 25 registered members, made up of employees, friends and family. Team EBI raised almost $2,000 this year and we are still able to accept donations through our Komen Maryland Team Page. We thank everyone for their generous donations and support of this special cause.
Through EBI’s Just One World philanthropic initiatives, we find ways to support causes important to our clients, employees, and business partners. We focus on causes that are not only close to our heart but that also give back to our immediate community. Of the money raised at the Race for the Cure each year, up to 75% stays in Maryland to fund local programs for women and families.
