Joining forces to help make the world diabetes-free
With approximately 25.8 million Americans suffering from diabetes across the U.S. — and 1.3 million in New York City alone — the Building and Construction Trades Department (BCTD)of theAFL-CIOis committed to the fight against diabetes. Supporting them is The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s construction accident law firms.
This year The Perecman Firm participated in the 28th Annual Labor of Love, the Building Trades annual fundraiser for Diabetes Research. Attending the convention and golf tournament were David Perecman, Mike Caliguiri and George Gonzalez.
The 28th Annual Labor of Love weekend event took place in Baltimore on May 18-20, 2013.
The event also featured the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworker’s Softball Slam.
The BCTD has raised $48 million for the Diabetes Research Institute over the years, according to the BTCD website. The Diabetes Research Institute seeks to cure diabetes now.
According to the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, union men and women from across the United States contributed even more than financial support. They constructed the Institute’s state-of-the-art research facility.
“We at The Perecman Firm are committed to doing our part to help the BCTD and the Diabetes Research Institute raise money in an effort to make a real difference in the lives of those who suffer from diabetes,” said Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm. “Diabetes is a serious condition affecting millions.”
