STARTEK Employees Trade in Headsets for Running Shoes to Raise Funds for the American Cancer Society

GREELEY, CO — STARTEK, Inc. ("STARTEK") (NYSE: SRT), a global customer engagement business process outsourcer, today announced a donation of $5,166 to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  Employees participated in company-sponsored fund raising events as well as the relay weekend held on Saturday, June 4 at University High School in Greeley, Colorado. 

Over the past three months, STARTEK employees made donations for “dress down” days, prime parking space raffles, bake sales and chair massages along with holding a Zumbathon and competitive dime drive.  Additionally, they took turns walking and running the track over a 12-hour period starting Saturday afternoon.  Fifty-six teams in total participated this year in the Weld County Relay For Life event and raised over $162,000.  STARTEK achieved second place under the team size category of 16 or more participants and reached the gold fundraising level.

“STARTEK Brand Warriors have participated in this amazing event for the past ten years and are proud to be on the front lines in the fight against cancer,” said Mindy Cubrich, STARTEK’s Greeley Engagement Center Director.  “We’ve literally poured our hearts and ‘soles’ into supporting this important cause, which has touched so many families locally and around the world.”

Money raised during Relay For Life helps fund the American Cancer Society’s mission of eliminating cancer by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. 

The Society is the largest nonprofit supporter of new cancer research and the largest voluntary health organization fighting cancer in our country and around the world.
