WELCOME TO OUR TEAM PAGE!
You would think that spending 8 hours a day together would be enough, but last year when I found out my coworker Sally was training for a marathon, we started going to the gym together. We would meet in the parking lot of the gym before work and watch the sun rise from the treadmills before heading in for a long day of work at The Lisa Ekus Group.
If you aren't familiar with The Lisa Ekus Group, we are a full-service culinary agency. We provide media training, public relations, consulting, and literary agency services to cookbook authors, chefs, food writers, and photographers. In other words, we spend all day thinking and talking about recipes, cookbooks, & chefs. Food is our world, and we strongly believe that food has an integral role to play in health & happiness.
This year, we are proud to have a TLEG staff team running the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco on October 14, 2012. Staff members Sally Ekus and Corinne Fay, along with TLEG-friend David Abrami will be running and fundraising, and since Sally is celebrating 25 years cancer-free, our goal is to raise a whopping Twenty-Five Thousand dollars for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
You might be wondering what a culinary agency is doing raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We are all doing this for different reasons. Sally has a very personal connection to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (which you can read more about HERE), but I know there are few among us who don't know just how nightmarish a cancer diagnosis is. I know that my family and Dave's family have both been affected by breast cancer, and there have been countless other family members, neighbors, acquaintances, clients, and friends whose lives have been impacted by cancer.
We are doing this in honor all of our loved ones whose lives have been struck by cancer.
We are doing this in honor of Sally, who is lucky enough to be celebrating 25 years cancer-free this year.
And we are doing this for health in general -- whether that means making it through countless rounds of chemo, getting to the gym before the sun comes up, or eating well. As part of the culinary industry, we value good food and the good health and sustenance it can bring.
Please help us reach our goals by donating to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 75% of all donations go directly to research and patient support services, and donations are 100% tax deductible. We hope that with your help we will be able to reach our goal of raising 25k.
Our fundraising deadline is September 24th, but we will gladly accept donations after this date. Donations can be made here on our team page, or on any of our individual pages, OR you can send a check payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to: The Lisa Ekus Group at 57 North Street, Hatfield, MA 01038.
