CancerCare Walk/Run for Hope will take place at Bergen Community College, Paramus, NJ, on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 9:00 am. As a local company involved in cancer research and drug development, Eisai will once again be one of the major sponsors for this year's event. In addition to the platinum-level sponsorship, a number of Eisai employees and family members are expected to fundraise for and to attend the event, including Lonnel Coats, CEO, Eisai, Inc. and Kenichi Nomoto, President, Oncology Product Creation Unit.
Walk/Run for Hope is CancerCare's largest fundraising event bringing together friends, families and community members to walk/run in memory of those they have lost to cancer and to support those who are currently facing the disease and honor survivors. CancerCare provides vital support services to patients and families living with cancer.
Eisai is proud to support this local event and organization as part of its broader hhc mission. To truly consider the perspectives of patients and their families, it is important for each Eisai employee to first get close to patients and see the situation through their eyes to learn to pick up on thoughts and feelings that might not necessarily always be expressed in words. It is this concept that is the starting point for all of Eisai's corporate activities.
