BASF raises more than $8,700 for cancer awareness and research


BASF employees at the Wyandotte, Michigan site recently donated more than $8,700 to the American Cancer Society to promote cancer awareness and research.

The site’s Women in Business employee group organized a chili cook off and cookbook sale, hosted a comedy night and raised money and awareness by joining the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Detroit.

“Ongoing awareness and research demonstrates what a complex and multifaceted disease cancer is,” said Greg Pflum, Vice President and General Manager of BASF’s Midwest Hub. “Our donation will help to fight this disease and save lives by providing information on early detection and prevention.”

BASF employees also adorned trees along Biddle Avenue in Wyandotte with pink ribbons to further support cancer awareness.
