In the spring of 2017, Boeing employees participated in an employee drive in support of the American Cancer Society.
Collectively, employees raised more than half a million dollars as part of the drive, money that will be used to fund cancer prevention research, education programs, advocacy efforts and patient services throughout the United States.
“A cancer diagnosis is one of the most feared medical diagnoses and unfortunately hits close to home for so many of us,” said Tim Keating, senior vice president of Government Operations. “I am so proud of our Boeing teammates and the overwhelming outpouring of support from sites across the country.
"We worked together as ‘One Boeing’ to accomplish a very lofty goal," Keating added, "and now our collective contributions have the ability to help improve the lives millions of cancer patients and survivors who continue to struggle with this terrible disease.”
