Vysnova Partners Participates in Its First CSR Event: Walk to End Alzheimer’s

PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 11, 2017 – Vysnova Partners participated in Philadelphia’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the world’s largest event dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and it’s the only cause of death in the U.S.’s top ten that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed.[1]

As Vysnova Partners grows, corporate social responsibility is a value that it aims to uphold. The company seeks new ways to give back to the local community and the international community, especially in health research, care, and support. Vysnova prides itself on being small enough to be able to support issues that are important to its employees. As several of Vysnova’s employees have known or loved someone affected by Alzheimer’s, Vysnova appreciated the opportunity to support a cause close to the hearts of its employees.

Vysnova employees travelled to Philadelphia, PA on the weekend of November 11 and sponsored Dee’s Memory Squad, which was a registered team walking for Dee Fynes, a relative of Vysnova COO Dr. John Fallon.  Regarding the Walk and the sponsored social events following the event, Dr. Fallon offered that, “Vysnova is honored to dedicate its resources, time, and effort towards such a worthy cause and to specifically support such a beloved family member in Dee.  I personally want to thank the Vysnova family for its willingness to spread its core mission of improving public health outside of its immediate work activities.”  Dee’s Memory Squad comprised part of the overall  8,465 other participants in a Walk around Citizens Bank Park, sporting flowers to show their connection to the cause. The Philadelphia walk raised $1,32,349.05 for Alzheimer’s Association’s research, prevention, and treatment.

Vysnova looks forward to continuing its support of community and global health initiatives like the Walk to End Alzheimer’s as it plans its next CSR event in the Spring.
