MAX CURE FOUNDATION/DE CORP 5K FunRun
In conjunction with the Delaware Corporate 5K FunRun, Precision AirConvey helped to collect sneakers for the Max Cure Foundation – Dunk Your Kicks Drive. Both the PAC Delaware and New Jersey offices collected sneakers to send to Max Cure. In 2008 Max Cure Foundation was inspired by a little boy named Max and his brave battle with a rare form of cancer. This foundation not only helps fund childhood cancer research, they also provide financial assistance to families with children battling the disease. The Dunk Your Kicks campaign collects gently used sneakers and recycles them to raise money while at the same time creating jobs globally and reducing the risk of disease to those living in developing countries who would otherwise go barefoot. There are over 200 million pair of sneakers thrown into US landfills every year, Dunk Your Kicks helps to give new life to these unwanted items.

Precision AirConvey’s sales team braved gray skies and rain to participate in the Bisson-Callaghan Foundation’s 4th Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner held in June at the Ed Oliver Golf Club in Wilmington Delaware.
The Bisson-Callaghan Foundation was established in 2014 by friends of Bruce Bisson and Gene Callaghan, two great guys whose lives were cut short by cancer in 2013.
