Preferred Materials Inc. put on their pink shirts and pink tutus and walked 3.1 miles in the Pasco County, FL Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk on Saturday, October 25, 2014.
The West Coast FL Green Team organized a team of approximately sixty (60) staff and friends and family to walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The team walked among 5,000 walkers who together raised $195,000 for the fight against breast cancer. The donations will support breast cancer research and will also contribute to free comprehensive programs that help people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early, when it is most treatable.
The Green Teams are comprised of employees from each business unit who volunteer their time and energies to special projects throughout the year. The West Coast Florida Team is represented by individuals from Conrad Yelvington Distributors, Preferred Materials (Asphalt and Concrete Divisions) and the Oldcastle Materials SE Division Office.
