TAMKO Building Products, Inc., one of the country’s largest privately-owned manufacturers of commercial and residential roofing and building products, was the presenting sponsor of the 9th Annual Race 4 Hope event. This was the sixth consecutive year that TAMKO sponsored the event.
The Race 4 Hope benefits the Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation and included a 5k race, 1 mile walk, and survivor ceremony. For the second year, TAMKO earned the award for largest corporate team. TAMKO had 30 employees from Corporate, High Street, Engineering & Construction, and Lamar participate in the event. Additionally, several TAMKO employees were acknowledged in their age groups for their finishing times. TAMKO Corporate Director of Research and Development Andre Lacour placed second overall.
“We are very proud to sponsor this event and are even more delighted to have had runners that placed,” said Stephanie Onstot, TAMKO Community Relations Associate. “The team effort and participation just goes to show how our employees value this organization and the community.”
The Race 4 Hope event was held on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at the Missouri Southern State University campus in Joplin, Missouri. The event proceeds benefited the Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization that works with local communities to raise awareness, offer education, provide support and instill hope in individuals and families impacted by breast cancer.
At the Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation, Hope stands for “Help, Outreach, Prevent, and Educate.” While there are many national and international organizations that work to end breast cancer, Hope 4 You was founded by individuals and corporations to provide support locally in the Joplin-area. TAMKO and its President and CEO David Humphreys are proud to support such a wonderful cause.
