Cancer Support Community: KMRD recognized with the 2020 V Award

KMRD Announces the Firm’s Exceptional Honor of Being Awarded with the Second Annual V Award by the Cancer Support Community

WARRINGTON, PA, October 25, 2021 – The year 2020 was a year filled with panic and doubt, yet amongst all the chaos there were pockets of light. KMRD never allowed its light to dim and continued to go the extra mile for not only its clients but the community. KMRD’s work did not go unnoticed and the firm was awarded the 2020 Cancer Support Community 2nd Annual V Award.

The V Award is granted to those who display immaculate character and are viewed as a leader in the eyes of others. Most importantly, the award praises those who have exemplified the actions of selflessness by dedicating themselves and giving their all to their community. KMRD has been an active supporter of the Cancer Support Community since 2007. The firm has grown along with the community over the past 14 years of its involvement and the team recognizes the tremendous honor it is to be given such an award.

For us, helping and supporting people in the cancer community matters, we cannot just sit on the sidelines,” said Kevin McPoyle, Co-Founder and President of KMRD. “It is humbling to receive this award, however, it was not necessary to win because either way, KMRD will continue our efforts with the Cancer Support Community.”

The genesis of our involvement began in 2005 when Lisa Pascoe was helping her sister with the help of Gilda’s Club. Since then, Lisa has done an incredible job organizing our team’s involvement in a meaningful and rewarding way.” Bob Dietzel, Co-founder, and Principal added. “We are proud of being part of the Cancer Support Community’s important mission and thank them for treating us like family!”

The V Award is a special acknowledgment because it is one that signifies the embodiment of the qualities of a valiant leader and individual; Dr. Venerando Jaurigue. Philip P. Jaurigue, Chairman and CEO of Sabre Systems Inc. received the inaugural V Award in 2019, in honor of his father.

KMRD Partners, Robert Dietzel, Kevin McPoyle, and Vice President Lisa Pascoe received the award in 2020 but due to the pandemic, celebrations and recognitions had to be placed on pause in order to take the proper safety precautions. However, this year the community presented KMRD with the 2020 V Award at this summer’s 2021 Golf Outing, along with congratulating this year’s winner, Kristie Mazzalupi, an employee of AstraZeneca.
