eLynx, a portfolio company of American Capital, reported that its employees recently participated in two events to benefit the American Cancer Society. Employees from eLynx’s Cincinnati office participated in a Relay for Life, while the Portland, Ore., office took part in a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Together, the two offices raised moer than $7,000. Fundraising started in February and involved both individual and team fundraising activities, including a bake sale, raffles, a horseshoe tournament, and a Cinco de Mayo luncheon. “We encourage everyone on our team to give back to the communities in which we live and work,” said Sharon Matthews, president and chief executive officer of eLynx. “We are very proud of the people in our company and congratulate them all on their efforts to benefit this worthy cause.” Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer are events dedicated to raising funds for the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. Money raised for the organization goes to cancer prevention, detection, research, and treatment. More than 1.5 million new cases of cancer diagnosis are expected every year. The National Institutes of Health estimates overall costs of cancer at over $263 billion annually.
