DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Polyglass U.S.A. Inc. is stepping up to support the Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC) for the fourth consecutive year.
The event will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. on Feb. 29. All funds raised by Polyglass — through corporate and individual contributions, and the “Fighting Partner” sponsorship of the DCC — will support innovative cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC).
All participant-raised funds go directly to the SCCC for cancer research. Each year, participants can ride, walk, run or volunteer throughout different routes offered within South Florida.
This year’s participation in the event is particularly significant for Polyglass team members, as the company has experienced the loss of several beloved staff members: Dr. and Mrs. Squinzi, Romano Zanchetta, and Les Gory. In their honor, 30 of the Polyglass DCC participants will bike the 25-mile course in custom Polyglass jerseys. Polyglass also donated an additional $10,000 in their memory.
“This opportunity to support the fight against cancer aligns perfectly with our values as a company,” says Scott Lelling, director of strategic marketing for Polyglass U.S.A. Inc. “We are proud to support life-saving research that touches so many in our communities.”
The DCC is dedicated to improving lives by financially supporting cancer research at the SCCC at the University of Miami. Since 2010, DCC participants have raised more than $32 million for the SCCC.
