Millions of people and their families are affected by cancer every day, including many at SkyWest Airlines. To show support in the fight against this devastating disease, several SkyWest team members recently gathered to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in St. George, Utah.
This year, SkyWest had two teams made up of 12 employees and their families in the St. George event. They walked and ran for 24 hours, raising money for the fight against cancer. The event also provided everyone a chance to honor those who have faced or are facing this devastating disease.
Along with the money raised during the actual walk, the teams put in a lot of work to secure donations to fund the fight against cancer ahead of time. Thanks to the generosity of fellow SkyWest employees, the teams were able to raise more than $2,400 during special lunches at corporate headquarters. Along with a donation from SkyWest the teams raised an impressive $6,300, more than doubling their original goal.
Congratulations to the SkyWest Relay for Life teams on achieving great success in their fundraising and for their inspiring efforts
