US Airways - October 2013 - (Page 6)

CEO Letter embark thank You for Flying with US Our Commitment to a Great Cause Gwen and Doug Parker ★ During your travels with us today, and throughout the month of October, you might notice US Airways employees wearing pink shirts, scarves, or ties. They’re showing their support for a cause that’s close to the hearts of many: Finding a cure for breast cancer. A few years ago, our employees told us that they wanted our airline to support breast cancer US Airways employees raised more than $200,000 last year for the American cancer Society’s Making Strides Against breast cancer program through the be PINK campaign.

So last year US Airways added color for a cause and started BE PINK, our campaign in partnership with the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) program. The response was tremendous. Employees from throughout the US Airways network came together to raise more than $200,000 to help find a cure for breast cancer through pink uniform and merchandise sales and donations. They formed teams and marched at MSABC walks in our hub cities of Philadelphia, Phoenix, Washington, DC, and Charlotte. They talked about how breast cancer has affected their families and friends, and they shared their own stories of survival with their colleagues. Many of our employees who are wearing pink or participating in an MSABC walk this month are showing their support for a loved one fighting cancer. One of those employees is flight attendant Bryan Rohwer, whose wife, Brenda, also a US Airways flight attendant, was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Thankfully, Brenda is on the road to recovery, and Bryan says that the support of the couple’s colleagues provided critical help for their family during their time of need. You can learn more about Brenda and Bryan’s story and how US Airways employees are flying together to fight against breast cancer on page 62. Breast cancer research and support programs have come a long way because of generous donations and the hard work of the American Cancer Society, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Until we find a cure, we’ll continue to lace up our shoes, walk for the cure, and donate to the cause.

We hope to see you on another flight (or at an MSABC walk) soon. Doug Parker Chairman and CEO
