Bay Area Repliconians Support the Fight Against Childhood Cancer

Bay Area Repliconians Support the Fight Against Childhood Cancer

In January of this year, one of our co-workers learned that her 16-month-old daughter had leukemia. After the initial shock, her Repliconian co-workers stepped into action to show support.

At first, there were purple bracelets made and worn as a symbol of strength and solidarity (think of those yellow Livestrong bracelets worn for Lance Armstrong). Then, there were blood drives scheduled at all office locations (9 pints collected from Redwood City alone).

Our latest endeavor to support our colleague and her family took place on November 8th, when 20 of our Redwood City employees (children, spouses, and friends included) participated in the CureSearch Walk in San Francisco.

The CureSearch Walk is a national organization that raises funds to support ongoing clinical trials at local hospitals, as well as basic and translational research. One unique aspect of this event is that patients and their families are an integral part of organizing and participating in the walk.

The walk was short and intimate (2 miles and about 100 people). The modest size of the event added a personable feel and was indicative of the little ones whom we were walking for. It was a small reminder that “hero’s come in all sizes”- the theme for this year’s fundraiser.

Four young survivors were awarded medals for their strength and bravery and also kicked the walk off.

The Repliconians were easily recognizable in bright orange t-shirts (a sharp contrast from our Replicon blue). Orange is the color that represents the fight against leukemia.

Replicon was able to raise an amazing $2,041 in honor of our co-worker’s daughter and even won the award for 3rd place Fundraising Team!

Thank you to everyone who participated, supported us and donated to this very important cause.
