Goodman Acker P.C. of Southfield has joined the challenge to “whip” childhood cancer. Starting Nov. 1, Goodman Acker attorneys and staff are taking part in the #WhipCancer challenge with a goal to help raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer.
One of out of five children diagnosed with childhood cancers have their lives cut far too short. Goodman Acker has joined the #WhipCancer Challenge and all funds raised will go to the Pediatric Oncology department at the DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit.
All Goodman Acker employees are participating in this month long challenge. Thirty-two employees are being divided into six teams and each team is competing against each other to raise the most money for the challenge.
“Cancer is a disease that touches the lives of millions of people and their families. Our efforts in the #WhipCancer challenge are a success if they help spread the message, support the fight to block out childhood cancer, and further groundbreaking research,” said Senior Partner Jerry Acker.
The challenge will take place from Nov. 1-14 The three teams that have raised the least will be challenged to take a whipped cream pie in the face on Tuesday, Nov. 15 and push it forward by challenging someone else.
