Passionate & Caring “Team Rahco” Supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2019 Walk/Run
Rahco Rubber, Inc. is pleased to announce continued support to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as a proud participant in the 2019 St. Jude Walk/Run in Chicago on September 21, 2019.
“Giving back to the community is extremely important to us, along with supporting our people and the culture we create together,” said Steve Anton, president of Rahco Rubber. “I could not be prouder of the hardworking group from Rahco, and for coming together to support a most worthy cause.”
Throughout September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, tens of thousands of supporters participate in Walk/Run events in 65 cities across the country to raise money for the hospital’s mission: Finding cures. Saving children.
Members from Rahco’s quality management team band together and formed ‘Team Rahco’— also known as the ‘Quality Ladies’ — to support the hospital’s important work.
“The kids at St. Jude are an inspiration,” said Anna Contreras, Quality Audit Supervisor at Rahco Rubber and this year’s Walk Team Leader. “This was a great chance to have fun together, while making a difference.”
“Our team is made up of caring women that love their families very much and know how blessed we are,” Contreras added, when speaking about the group that included Maribel Huerta, Martina Medina, Andrea Guevara, Martha Contreras and Miriam Casarez.
“Employees are proud to work at Rahco. They are passionate about the work and their colleagues,” said Jim Anton, Vice Present of Rahco Rubber. “We are very fortunate to have this group — they apply a strong work ethic and passion to our focus on quality and protecting the integrity our customers brand every day.”
Thank you Quality Ladies for supporting St. Jude’s mission and Rahco Rubber’s goals.

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and cures childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments developed at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
