HWI Leadership to go Over The Edge

Sep 22, 2018 / Events
Over the Edge

Members of our HWI leadership team are about to go over the edge – literally!

Carol Jackson, HWI chairman and CEO, Judy Weisseg, Vice President, Human Resources, and Brad Cramer, Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, have once again accepted the challenge to go “Over The Edge” to help raise funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting blood cancer. LLS is instrumental in supporting critical research and is a leader in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine — research that saves lives.

The three HWI executives will be participating in this year’s “live” event on Friday, September 28, 2018 where they will (literally) go over the edge — rappelling 22 stories down the historic Koppers Building in downtown Pittsburgh.
