Back in June, Short Run Pro and her affiliated companies (Federal Brace, Killarney Metals, Bison Built, Computer Bracket Solutions) pledged to donate a portion of all of their proceeds to the Leukemia Society, the largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer, in order to aid in research about the disease that ravages so many lives and leaves so many families grieving their loved ones each year. We did this to commemorate the amazing life led by one very special man, Bill Kendall, father of one of our employees, Shannon Kendall. Bill passed earlier this year, after fighting a long battle with CLL, or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia.
We were able to donate a significant amount of money to aid in research, and are proud of both those who purchased our product to aid in our donation, and those who have dedicated their lives to this research. Furthermore, we are proud of the Kendall family, as they continue to honor Bill’s name through positive methods, sponsoring more research and development with the disease that took Bill’s life. In September, Bill’s children and loved ones ran in his name, wearing shirts with both “Team Kendall” on them and supporting research within the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Through further awareness about leukemia, and through the bravery of the warriors that go through the struggle, like Bill, we know that one day results will be positive, and we will find a way to stem the savagery of leukemia.
