Industry: Legal Services
Gori Julian & Associates, Inc., P.C. recently held its first Cycling for Meso event where it raised $11,500 for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.
St. Louis, Mo (PRUnderground) May 14th, 2014
It was a beautiful, sunny day in the St. Louis region on April 26 when area residents gathered to raise funds for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation at the inaugural Cycling for Meso event. Organized by the law firm, Gori Julian & Associates, Inc., P.C, the event drew sponsors from across the United States, all with one interest – helping fund research and outreach for victims of mesothelioma. A total of $11,500 was raised as part of the effort.
Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation works to support families and victims of Mesothelioma, through education, advocacy and research. In basic medical terms, mesothelioma is a rare cancer in which cells of the mesothelium (a membrane that covers and protects most of the internal organs of the body) become abnormal and malignant. The known cause of mesothelioma in the United States is asbestos.
“We had such a great time organizing this event and pulling in the interests of so many businesses and area residents who wanted to stand by our side in supporting the fight against mesothelioma,” said Randy Gori, founding partner at Gori Julian & Associates, Inc., P.C. “We believe we had a successful first-year event and plan to do it again next year with even more enthusiasm so we can help spread awareness for this important cause.”
Cycling for Meso is one of several events Gori Julian hosts throughout the year to raise funds for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. An ongoing distribution of Cure 4 Meso bracelets helps the firm spread the word while hosting events like Cycling for Meso and an annual Cure 4 Meso Pub Crawl expands their reach of support throughout the year.
