July 2018 – As the presenting sponsor of the 2018 Huntsman 5K, Zurixx is thrilled to announce that they raised $103,225 for cancer research! This year’s event took place on June 16th and had over 1,100 participants.
“Being able to walk alongside so many cancer survivors at this year’s 5K was truly inspiring, we are proud to have joined the Huntsman Cancer Institute once again in raising funds to find a cure.” James Carlson, CEO of Zurixx
After crushing 2017’s goal of $25,000, Team Zurixx set their sights much higher and increased the goal to $100,000. To help reach their goal, Zurixx organized a food truck festival featuring Waffle Love and Black’s Sliders, with a portion of the day’s proceeds being donated toward the goal. The top individual fundraisers on Team Zurixx were Anthony Dixon ($5,025), Bret Ehlers ($1,585) and Scott Orison ($1,175).
