Published on October 15, 2013 in General

Newtown, PA — The Newtown office of Martex Fiber Southern Corp. recently sponsored the A Love for Life team for the Philadelphia International Dragonboat Festival, which went on to win first place in its division.

Marc Williamson, the Chief Operating Officer of Martex Fiber said, “We want to congratulate everyone on the team members for their win. We hope their hard work will help spread the word about A Love for Life, which is an organization working to save lives from pancreatic cancer.”

A Love for Life works in partnership with the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital to fund research for earlier detection methods and more effective treatments for pancreatic cancer patients. The founder, Christine Edmonds, established A Love for Life in honor of her husband Kevin, who died last year after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

The team members’ names can be found on the event’s website.
