Bark and Brew 5K Fun Run and Walk For a Cure

Lakewood’s Terumo Blood and Cell Technologies Hosts Inaugural Bark and Brew 5k Fun Run and Walk, and Beer Garden in Support of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

​​​​​Terumo Blood and Cell Technologies​​ is continuing its ongoing support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) with its first of a planned series of annual Bark and Brew 5k Fun Run and Walk on Sept. 9 in Lakewood's Belmar Park. LLS is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers. Its mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. 

Since 2007, Terumo BCT​ has raised more than $1.9 million in support of LLS, and each year its donations represent 20% of the Rocky Mountain Chapter's revenue. The Terumo BCT team is already close to meeting its goal of raising $100,000 for LLS.

Corporate and individual donations help LLS fund research, support patients and advocate for blood cancer cures and treatment.

"Terumo Blood and Cell Technologies has a mission to be a 'force for good' as part of our corporate citizenship," said Christine Romero, Terumo BCT spokesperson. "For a company like Terumo BCT, with a 100-year mission of Contributing to Society through Healthcare, both cancer and COVID-19 have been a call to action, and we are fully committed to helping patients who need it most."

Terumo BCT's roots in Lakewood go back to 1967. It opened its Lakewood global campus in 2015.
