Walkers Get ‘Connected for a Cure’ With Help of 4imprint
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Through its one by one charitable giving program, 4imprint donated $500 worth of promotional T-shirts to outfit the walkers of the 1st Annual Walk for Neurofibromatosis (NF) on Sunday, July 20.
The bright-red T-shirts, imprinted with the event’s slogan “Connected for a Cure,” were given to participants as a gift for joining the three-mile walk, held at Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay, Wis. Promotional products retailer 4imprint had a special personal investment in the cause as well, with the daughter of its team member Brian Keliher suffering from NF.
Keliher, with the company for 12 years, also organized a smoothie fundraiser at 4imprint preceding the event to raise money toward a donation to fund NF research through the Wisconsin Chapter of the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
“With the help of generous supporters, there is hope for treatment and a cure for my daughter and others who have NF,” said Keliher.
