Our charitable partnership with the American Cancer Society

In 2014, we launched our first Relay For Life team in support of the American Cancer Society, raising nearly $3,500 for research, education and patient support. In 2015 we will pursue a year-long campaign to raise funds and awareness for ACS. Part of this effort will be a wellness initiative to help all ALitho employees and their families embrace the steps all of us can take to reduce our risks for cancer.

We have chosen the American Cancer Society because we know that virtually all of us have a friend, family member or loved one who has been touched by this disease. Working together, we will be an active part of the search for cures and the effort to support those battling cancer right now.

If you or someone you know has cancer, call the American Cancer Society anytime, day or night, for free resources and support in English, Spanish and many other languages. The 24/7 hotline is 800-227-2345.
