  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) October 29, 2010 - Foundation Financial Group, one of the nation's premier mortgage lenders, and its North Carolina sales division supported the philanthropy in the fifth annual Friesen 5K Fun Run earlier this month, an event benefiting for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Eastern North Carolina.

    The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society relies on the support of individuals, corporations and foundations to fund its research initiatives, patient services and education programs. Raising more than $680 million since its start in 1949, the society's donations support research that targets leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma.

    While its employees raised money by participating in the 5K, Foundation Financial Group also made an undisclosed monetary donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    "Participating in this great cause is a fantastic way for Foundation Financial Group to give back to our community," said Senior Vice President Roy Kelly, division general manager of Foundation Financial Group. "Everyone's hope is that someday soon we will find a cure for cancer and this event can be more about enjoying the outdoors with friends and family instead of fighting this disease."
