By the end of the day on October 30, NIEHS employees had pledged nearly $60,000 or 85 percent of the campaign's 2009 goal of $70,000, and CFC organizers were confident NIEHS would reach or exceed the goal as the campaign continues through November 20.

The smooth execution of the campaign is a testament to the concerted efforts of the co-chairs for the 2009 CFC campaign - Veronica Godfrey Robinson and Rachel Frawley - and division leaders - Dona McNeill (OM), Robin Mackar (OD), Eli Ney (DIR), Claudia Thompson (DERT), and Rachel Frawley (NTP) - as well as a dedicated group of volunteer keyworkers (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/newsletter/2009/november/docs/cfc-2009-branches.pdf)  Download Adobe Reader (124 KB) .

The speakers at the kickoff events, Acting Scientific Director John Pritchard, Ph.D., and Acting Deputy Director Steve Kleeberger, Ph.D., also did their part with moving testimony on the importance of helping others.
