Employees from Munch’s Supply, a leading Midwest-based HVAC distributor, participated in the virtual St. Jude’s Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer on Sept. 25.
For the past eight years, Munch’s Supply has supported the event. “We’re proud that our employees and customers have wholeheartedly supported our annual tradition to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the groundbreaking work they do to treat children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases,” said Keith Kramer, chief operating officer of Munch’s Supply.
Although 2021’s event was virtual, the Munch’s Supply team worked to raise more than $24,000 – their highest-ever fundraising amount. This put Munch’s Supply in second place out of the 127 St. Jude Walk/Run teams in the Chicago area. New this year, Munch’s Supply raised funds through a Senior Leadership Match Days campaign with its management team. The company also offered an online Munch’s Supply/St. Jude Summer Fun Store where employees and customers could purchase special items (such as T-shirts and electronics items) with purchase proceeds going to St. Jude. Other activities included raffles for customers and employees along with traditional participant donations.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Founded by Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
