Twenty years ago, the Cancer Shoot began as a way to combine sportsmanship and community with the search for a cancer cure. Allied Blacktop was there 20 years ago, and continues to sponsor the shoot today. On March 13, Allied attended the 20th annual Cancer Shoot, and sponsored three pegs at the event. By the end of the day, the Cancer Shoot had raised more than $100,000 for the research spearheaded by Dan Saltzman at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Saltzman’s lab has navigated Phase I Human Testing and has moved to Phase II Human Testing with FDA approval. Funds from the Cancer Shoot go toward state-of-the art equipment and hiring the best scientists available for Dr. Saltzman’s ground-breaking research.
The Cancer Shoot is organized in part by Rob Evans, one of the hosts of the award-winning TV show, The Ultimate Hunt. Far from your average reality show, this innovative hit brings together hunters, doctors, and the race for a cure for cancer. Allied is proud to support Rob Evans, Dr. Saltzman and their important efforts.
CBL & Associates conference in Chattanooga, TN
The Allied team headed south to Chattanooga to attend CBL & Associates annual leadership conference. Every year leaders in building management, leasing and development meet and discuss innovations and the future of their industry. Allied was one of the sponsors and set up shop with a booth at the conference. “We talked to a lot of people about our assessment work,” said Allied executive Dan Smith, “many people don’t know that we don’t just do the work, we can also assess, get pricing, contract, plan and oversee large-scale projects.”
