Lauren from Links for Lauren

Community Connections: Links for Lauren, Ducky Day, lending a truck

TDS receives many invitations to participate in events, become a corporate sponsor, or simply donate items for giveaways. Unfortunately we can’t say yes to all of them. However a couple we recently said yes to include Links for Lauren and Ducky Days.

Links for Lauren

This annual event raises research funds and awareness for Neurofibromatosis (NF), a condition that causes tumors to grow along nerves throughout one’s body. NF can cause learning disabilities, hearing loss, and scoliosis. It affects one in every 3,000 children born and is the most common neurological disorder caused by a single gene.

This year, Links for Lauren (a golf outing and reception) was held on Aug. 22, 2015 at University Ridge in Madison, Wis. TDS was a corporate sponsor this year; the third year TDS and employees have joined this effort. Product Manager Pat F. volunteered to help out on the planning committee this year. He also participated in the event, along with several other TDS employees. All funds raised benefit the cutting-edge research done at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Biotechnology Center.

The event raised upward of $4,000 for NF research!

Hanging banners in Fayetteville, Ohio
