BFS Gives Back: Walk to End Alzheimer's
Corporate Social Responsibility is key to BFS
This October, a team representing the Bibby Financial Services California office will participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s event in Thousand Oaks, California. The team is led by AVP Account Executive Ingrid Chen who first began walking in 2014 in memory of her uncle who passed away from the disease. She has rallied her colleagues to walk and to raise funds that will help the Alzheimer’s Association increase awareness of the disease, conduct research, and provide support programs. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Alzheimer’s is the nation’s sixth leading cause of death.
Ingrid organized the Walk team as part of the Bibby Financial Services Giving Something Back (GSB) social responsibility program. The program launched in 2007, and our employees actively participate in the program to make a difference in their communities. In 2015, BFS North America employees raised $55,000 to support causes including the Nepal earthquake relief effort, the American Cancer Society, Ronald McDonald House, Cancer Research Society in Canada and Marie Curie in the UK. Additionally, employees volunteered nearly 2,000 hours in schools, homeless shelters, and with food banks.
