ATLANTA — Beacham & Company, REALTORS has chosen the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University as its recipient charity for the third quarter of 2017.
The primary fundraiser for Winship is their annual Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk on the campus of Emory University. This year’s race will be held Oct. 14 and marks the fifth consecutive year that Beacham has participated. Over the last five years, Beacham and its agents have donated more than $50,000 to Winship. This year’s Beacham efforts are being spearheaded by Beacham agent Carol Curran.
Beacham’s charitable giving program, Beacham Gives Back, adopts a new charity each quarter. Recipient charities are chosen by a vote of the company’s agents and staff. Proceeds from every closing during the quarter are donated to the recipient charity. Since Beacham & Company was founded in 2006, the firm has given or committed an estimated total of more than $250,000 to Atlanta charities and non-profit institutions. Some past recipients include the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta, Forward Arts Foundation, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and the Genesis Women’s Shelter.
The Winship Cancer Institute is a special charity to many Beacham agents and staff. A number of them are cancer survivors while others have experienced the loss of close family members to cancer. The Institute sees more than 15,000 patients a year and is Georgia’s only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center. Its investigators conducted over 250 therapeutic clinical trials and enrolled more than 700 patients in 2016. Winship has the largest unit in Georgia for phase I clinical trials, which are important to introducing new therapies against cancer.
