Tamron Tackles Cancer Participates in American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life


Commack, NY—Tamron USA’s corporate team, Tamron Tackles Cancer, will participate in the Northport, New York, Relay for Life event for the second year. The event, on June 8, 2019, is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Moreover, each year volunteers in thousands of communities and 27 countries staff and coordinate the event.

“We are proud to aid in the fundraising efforts for the American Cancer Society. On the day of the Relay for Life event, while raising money to support the important work of the American Cancer Society, we also will honor the lives lost to cancer, support those battling the disease and celebrate survivors,” stated Stacie Errera, chief marketing officer of Tamron USA.

The event is also open to the public, who can participate in many activities throughout the evening. Survivors and caregivers are encouraged to come for a survivor reception and walk the first laps of the night.

In addition, Tamron’s team captain, Sydney Flem, is a high school senior who has been a relay captain throughout high school. “This relay is very important to me,” said Flem, who organized Tamron’s 2018 corporate team and leads the team again this year. “We raise money for much needed research and care for those directly affected by cancer as well as their families and friends. Moreover, as a daughter and granddaughter of women affected by breast cancer, my participation and walk are very personal.”

Tamron set a fundraising goal of $10,000. In addition, the company scheduled a series of benefit educational sessions as its 2019 fundraiser. Tamron scheduled four photography seminars at its Long Island headquarters in March through May.
