West Palm Beach, FL –June 1, 2016—The American Cancer Society (ACS) and RGF Environmental Group Inc. (RGF) announced that they will work together on a strategic partnership to raise funds for cancer research and services in Florida. Through the Halos for Hope partnership, RGF will donate a portion of sales from two of their most popular IAQ products, the REME HALO® In-Duct Air Purifier and BLU QR® UV stick light, commencing June 1st through the end of November 2016. The American Cancer Society will receive a portion of the proceeds for each REME HALO® and BLU QR® sold by HVAC Contractors throughout the state of Florida. In addition, RGF is making available their corporate yacht, M/Y Envision, to assist the ACS in the fight against cancer. The first environmentally-friendly, 110 ft. motor yacht will serve as a venue for fundraising activities.
“This partnership is a natural fit for RGF as we are first and foremost a research and innovation company striving to improve the quality of lives worldwide. Research is critical to eradicating cancer and continuing its funding is imperative. We are dedicated to this cause, because every one of us and our family members have been touched by some form of cancer”, stated Ron Fink, RGF’s President/CEO.
These funds will stay in Florida and help citizens receive lifesaving services like Free Rides to Treatment, Free Wigs and Support Programs, Free Lodging, 24/7 Live Telephone Support, Research and so much more.
Annual statistics reporting from the American Cancer Society shows the death rate from cancer in the U.S. has declined steadily over the past 2 decades. The cancer death rate for men and women combined fell 27% from its peak in 1991 to 2015, the most recent year for which data is available, translating to more than 1.7 million deaths averted during this time period. Research done by the American Cancer Society proves that 1-2 men and 1-3 women will develop cancer in their lifetime. Consequently 1-4 men and 1-4 women will die of cancer in the United States.
Chris Snyder, Senior Market Manager, Community Engagement with the American Cancer Society of Palm Beach County said, “It is my pleasure to announce that the American Cancer Society and RGF will work together to put an end to cancer. Without the constant support of generous donations from organizations like RGF, we cannot fund research and provide lifesaving, services to the community. I take great pride in knowing that there are thoughtful organizations like RGF who believe in our mission to help people in every community stay well, get well, find cures and fight back.”
