New York, New York – (The Hosting News) – October 1, 2009 – Web hosting providers, CirtexHosting and HostV, will join the fight against cancer by donating a portion of its sales in October to the Jimmy Fund, which supports cancer research and care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
John Xie, President of Cirtex Corp. remarked, ”In one way or another, cancer affects us all. At Cirtex Corp, we’ve seen the effects of cancer up and close, and it’s our moral obligation to stand up and do our part to help advance the important research that offers the hope of better treatment and higher survival rates. My hope is that we can encourage more individuals and businesses to join our efforts and begin to support causes like this. Sometimes we don’t realize how important medical research is until it’s too late.”
Each year, the Jimmy Fund hosts the Jimmy Fund Walk as part of the Boston Marathon. This year’s walk was held several weeks ago and nearly 800 walkers raised more than $325,000. Cirtex Corp. is making its October donation to the 2009 Jimmy Fund Walk in the name of the walkers in this year’s event.
