During Cancer Awareness Month in October, TQL raised $141,201, a 20% increase from last year’s donation, through two fundraisers: Loads for a Cure and Pull for a Cure.

Through Loads for a Cure, TQL made a donation for every load moved Oct. 10-16, one of the busiest freight transportation weeks of the year. Tallying nearly $67,000.  

Then, through Pull for a Cure, TQL teams nationwide raised $74,500 with the company match as part of a fundraising competition. The top fundraising teams sent one member to headquarters for a semitruck-pull competition on Oct. 25. Four groups of 10 competed to pull a 34,000-pound truck 240 feet. The winning team completed the job in just 34 seconds.

Since 2010, TQL has raised over $770,000 for the American Cancer Society.

“Cancer affects everyone and unites us all,” said TQL president Kerry Byrne. “At TQL, we are intentional about celebrating those who have beaten it, supporting those who are fighting it and honoring those who have fallen to it. We are proud to make another record-breaking contribution to the American Cancer Society as it strives for a cure.”

TQL made a check presentation to the American Cancer Society following the semitruck-pulling competition.

“We are immensely grateful to Total Quality Logistics and all their employees for coming together with profound support in the fight against cancer,” said Lenora Oeters, Executive Director for the American Cancer Society. “Once again, TQL set a new record for their fundraising efforts. Through their support, they are setting the bar for corporate engagement and more importantly, they are raising awareness about cancer in order to save more lives. These donations will help us to end cancer as we know it for everyone through early detection and prevention, research and patient support.”
