The CancerConnect employee resource group unites employees who have a passion for supporting cancer patients and survivors. The Swiftwater group rallies around the following cancer-related causes in Northeast Pennsylvania with both financial contributions and employee engagement:

  • Relay for Life with the American Cancer Society
  • Race for the Cure with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
  • CASUAL (Colon Cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day with the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute
  • Shine a Light on Lung Cancer with the Lung Cancer Alliance and Lehigh Valley Hospital - Pocono
  • Pink Light Walk, a breast cancer awareness initiative with East Stroudsburg University

In 2017 alone, this group’s members raised more than $8,500 toward these various initiatives, playing a pivotal role in moving the needle on local cancer awareness, prevention, research, and advocacy.
