Atlanta - April 28, 2019, ProviDyn®, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits participated in the 25th Annual Lauren's Run and CURE Picnic held at Concourse Office Park, 4 Concourse Pkwy NE. Sunday lived up to its name with clear skies, pleasantly warm temperatures with just enough chill to keep the humidity at bay. This was the perfect setting for the 5k Run and Awards, a 2K Fun Run/Walk as well as the Tot Trot (ages 5 and under) which was followed by the CURE family picnic.
As per CURE: “Lauren’s Run was inspired by two special girls named Lauren, who each battled cancer. Lauren’s Run carries on today in each of their memories. For the last 24 years, hundreds of families have gathered to walk and run in support of CURE. Lauren's Run and the CURE Childhood Cancer Annual Picnic truly brings the community together, with families, schools and companies forming race teams to support our fight. After the race, Lauren's Run participants, as well as families diagnosed with childhood cancer, join together for the CURE Annual Picnic which included dozens of games, prizes, elaborate face painting, enormous inflatables, music, arts and crafts, a full lunch, and more.”
ProviDyn CEO, Hamish Davidson, a long -time corporate sponsor and supporter of the event was enthusiastic about the festivities: “This annual event has something for everyone – a mission every human being can embrace and physical activities that suit your mood as well as your athletic energy level.” He continued, “Half the ProviDyn team runs while the other half walks. We are glad to be part of the fight and always look forward this multi-faceted community and team building experience every year.”
CURE was founded by Emory University pediatric oncologist Dr. Abdel Ragab, who organized a group of his patients’ parents to initiate a pediatric oncology research program and found CURE. In 1981, the organization provided a significant donation to establish a research lab on the Emory campus. That lab grew to include a new outpatient clinic in 1987 and became a fully equipped childhood cancer research lab in 1989.
