Flagship Raced Full Speed Ahead to Find a Cure For Cancer

On June 25, a six-person Flagship team — “Full Speed Ahead” — collectively swam, biked, and ran more than 112 miles in the Philadelphia Tri-Rock Challenge, raising over $18,000 in donations for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The team consisted of Flagship CFO, John Schwab, EVP of Sales, Jeff Haymore, VP of Risk, Karl Stabler, HR Senior Specialist, Shauna Amador, Director of Sales Strategy and Development, George Ewing, and VP of Sales-Central, John Moody.

Every single dollar donated to the Full Speed Ahead Triathlon Team is used to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer so it can better fight infections and attack cancer cells, reducing the need for damaging chemotherapy.

Associates from the Flagship Chadds Ford, PA, headquarters stopped by to cheer on the team, and stayed to volunteer at our promotional tent set-up at the Philadelphia Tri-Rock Challenge!
