Over the last three years, W. M. Jordan Company has made a major commitment to helping fight cystic fibrosis through the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF).
WMJ Building Systems Engineer Murphy Kerner was introduced to the foundation through a friend and ever since he became involved he has worked to establish a strong relationship between WMJ and the CFF.
Kerner, who serves on the Hampton Roads Chapter’s Young Professional’s Board, has encouraged other WMJ employees to volunteer their time for the CFF’s annual fundraiser, the Brewer’s Ball. Kerner has served as a CFF Finest Honoree for the Brewer’s Ball and has seen others hold this same distinction. Honorees represent the area’s most accomplished and innovative young leaders who commit to raise funds and awareness for the CFF. Honorees are competitively selected based on their leadership, business and professional successes, spheres of influence and their philanthropic spirit.
This year, WMJ Business Development Manager Hayley Evans will represent W. M. Jordan as one of CFF’s Finest Honorees.
“Since becoming involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, I have learned a lot about the condition and how it can affect the quality of life of those who suffer from it,” said Evans. “Working with the Foundation and participating in the Brewer’s Ball is just a small way I can contribute to finding a cure, and hopefully make an impact in the fight against CFF.”
Kerner’s efforts have helped grow W. M. Jordan’s involvement with CFF organically.
“It’s easy because it’s such a good organization to support,” said Kerner. “Unique to the CFF, the majority of their donation money goes directly to funding research that will help find a cure for the disease.”
W. M. Jordan is committed to not only the physical construction of buildings but building up the communities where we work and live. We thank everyone who has made a commitment to fight Cystic Fibrosis. If you are interested in learning more about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, visit www.cff.org.
