Marathon Oil is committed to supporting Health & Human Services in all areas where we operate. Marathon Oil has partnered with Komen because of the number of lives this disease effects, plus a significant amount of money raised stays in our community to diagnose and treat patients who might not otherwise have access to these critical healthcare services. The balance goes to research that we hope will one day eliminate this dread disease.
Do you run/walk in support of someone? If so, please tell us more. Many Marathon employees have been touched by breast cancer whether it has been the employee, a loved one or friend.
Does your team host special kick-off activities or fundraising events? CBRE, the building management company for the Marathon Tower has partnered with Marathon Oil to host a cookie & punch social in the building lobby on September 12. Tenants will be able to learn more about breast cancer awareness and enjoy a silent auction benefitting Komen.
What does Race morning look like for your team? Employees will be arriving about 4:30 a.m. to set up water stations, construct the misting station, stock the Survivor Good Bag tent, and help in other areas where Komen needs volunteers. We hope to see a ‘sea of blue’ Marathon shirts as our Team Marathon joins the walk.
Any special people that should be recognized on your team? A special Thank You to all the Think Pink Planning Team, the volunteers, the walkers, and those who donated to support Komen’s very important efforts of raising awareness, providing mammograms and supporting those faced with battling this disease.
