Background Screening Firm PreCheck Joins 23rd Annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to End Breast Cancer
PreCheck, a leading background screening and employment qualification services provider for the healthcare industry, recently participated in the Houston Race for the Cure 5K run benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Houston, Texas - October 22, 2013
PreCheck, a healthcare exclusive background screening firm, was proud to join hundreds of supportive volunteers, walkers and even elite runners on Saturday, October 5, 2013 in Downtown Houston set out to end Breast Cancer at the 23rd annual Susan G. Komen Houston Race to End Breast Cancer 5K run. Houstonians were decked out in pink – established in 1992 as the color representing hope to those affected with Breast Cancer.
PreCheck was thrilled to have this opportunity to support two of its bravest members on the team - Rhonda Kellum, Client Services Lead and Gloria Satcherwhite, Sr. Human Resources Generalist/Compensation Analyst.
“What an amazing day it was,” said Sharron Garner, PreCheck’s Sr. Verifications Specialist. “There had to be thousands of runners and walkers there in support of the 23rd Annual Komen Houston Race for the Cure; including the Breast Cancer Survivors! It was amazing to see the ‘In Memory Of’ and the ‘In Celebration Of’ signs on the backs of the runners/walkers in honor of their loved ones. I was so proud to be there in support of my Co-Workers; their strength continues to astound me. Again, this was truly an amazing experience that I will definitely take part in again and again.”
“It was incredible to see the huge number of survivors participating in the race,” said Dionne Austin, Product Manager for PreCheck’s license management system. “They were understandably proud to display their labels as survivors! It was also great to see the sea of walkers and runners there to support them in the cause for the cure. My co-workers, who have been diagnosed in the last couple of years with breast cancer, are the first people I’ve known personally to be diagnosed. Their strength and courage amazes me! We are here to support them through their good days and carry them through their bad ones.”
The PreCheck team was so touched by the efforts the Susan G. Komen Foundation strides to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. As a company dedicated to impacting healthcare and protecting patient safety, PreCheck plans to continue supporting the organization’s mission in the years to come.
