Fighting Cancer: One Generous Act at a Time

October 19, 2017

Cancer is personal. It’s why SEH employees come together to raise funds to support cancer research.

And they do it one act at a time.

Empowered employees

It began in 2013. Employee-owners completed a survey sharing their thoughts on the charitable causes that resonated with their own beliefs and fit with the SEH core philosophy – Building a Better World for All of Us®. The ballots were tallied and the results are in. The two highest ranking charitable causes selected by employees were cancer support and food assistance.

That’s how our journey to help fight cancer began.

We are determined

Cancer is personal. Most of our employees know someone who has been, or is, affected by cancer — a family member, a friend, a co-worker or themselves.

Here’s a look at a few employees and what they did to raise funds to help fight cancer: Allyz Kramer (Duluth, Minn.) rappelled nine stories down a building. For more than 17 years, Jesse Anibas (St. Paul, Minn.) organized a team of family, friends and co-workers to participate in the Relay for Life in White Bear Lake, Minn. Darren Fortney (Madison, Wis.) has successfully organized and completed Gills for Gilda – a five-hour, six-mile swim in Lake Mendota in Madison, Wis. Several employees in our St. Paul, Minn. office, along with clients, participated in the Miles for Melanoma Foundation 5K walk/run.

One generous act at a time

One generous act at a time is what keeps us going. It’s what keeps our offices hosting fundraising events for our employees. The Denver, Colo. office proves that pennies do matter in their ‘pennies war’ challenge. In Appleton, Wis. they organized a short, fun run followed by a social and silent auction. The employees in Duluth, Minn. participated in a 5K sidewalk shuffle. Several offices have root beer floats and host patio BBQs to gather, socialize and donate.

The icing on the cake

SEH contributes $10,000 when our employee donations exceed $5,001.00. Employees far exceeded $5,001.00 four years in a row. Watch the video to see how our Company comes together to raise funds to help fight cancer. One generous act at a time.

Why? Because we imagine a world free from cancer.
