On May 16, 2017, Creative Door Services participated in the CURE Foundation's National Denim Day to help raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research, community services and state of the art equipment for the screening, diagnosis, and treatment.
Creative Door employees were encouraged to dress in denim for the duration of the work day. Donation boxes were also made available for those looking to make monetary donations in exchange for receiving CURE's "pink flower" ribbon – a symbol of their generosity and support for those affected by the disease.
This year, Creative Door employees in seven offices across Western Canada participated in the event. Every donation made by an employee was matched by Creative Door, resulting in over $1,300 raised for the CURE Foundation.
Since its inception in 1996, the CURE Foundation has raised nearly $29 million for research and resources benefitting those living with the devastating effects of breast cancer. But that's only a drop in the bucket. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, an estimated 25,930 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in 2016, with nearly 5,000 people losing their lives to the disease.
Creative Door is committed to ongoing support for the cause and looks forward to participating in National Denim Day for years to come.
