Atlanta

On 24 June 2017, the SITA WE (Women Empowered) team started the day at 6:20 AM with yoga sessions followed by a survivor meet and finally to their destination: the Atlanta Susan G Komen Race for the Cure. This year's event had a huge turnout and included a 1K walk and a 5K race to raise funds for breast cancer research. Thanks to a fantastic fundraising effort, the team came in 9th place for corporate donations with a total contribution of US$4091 from SITA families and supporters. Great team effort!

In May 2017, members of our Military Support Employee Resource Group (ERG) in Atlanta and other volunteers participated in a service day at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport USO. This was the group's second volunteer day with a total donation to the USO now close to $3,000.

Montreal

Ten SITA Montreal employees raced up 41 flights of stairs in a downtown high-rise as part of this year’s Centraide fundraising campaign. The proceeds of the sponsored race, a waffle sale and direct online donations totaled 839 CAD (US$625). They went towards helping young children attend a specialist-led early childhood stimulation workshop to prepare for kindergarten.

This year’s contribution to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) Run for the Cure event  was the highest total to date at just over 1,000 CAD (US$765). CBCF invests these dollars in the most promising breast cancer research that is leading the way in prevention, diagnosis , treatment and care.
