Spartan Motors Inc., parent of Spartan Chassis Inc., continued its commitment to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through its fourth annual sponsorship of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational July 25-28 at the TPC Southwind private golf club in Memphis, Tennessee.
“Over the past four years, Spartan has demonstrated our commitment to our partnership with FedEx by giving back to St. Jude,” said Spartan President and CEO Daryl Adams in a press release. “Our team is honored to stand by FedEx at this event. We are honored to support this important event that touches the lives of patients, researchers and families alike.”
The St. Jude Invitational supports research and treatment to defeat cancer and other life-threatening diseases in children. With the support of sponsorship through the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. In 1970, St. Jude became the event’s sole beneficiary. Since then, contributions to St. Jude have totaled more than $43 million.
This sponsorship is one of the many charitable donations Spartan Motors makes to the communities in which its associates and customers live and work. In 2018, Spartan Motors supported nonprofit organizations across the nation by giving more than $300,000 through monetary donations and fundraising activities.
