Lord, Abbett & Co LLC is a proud supporter of the Movember Foundation. Commenting on the firm’s ongoing participation, Doug Sieg, Managing Partner, said:
Since 2015, they have committed to help change the face of men’s health by raising $528,000, making Lord Abbett one of the top fundraisers in the U.S. Despite the challenges they were faced with last year, the team recognized the needs to raise funds was even more imperative due to the pandemic and they went on to surpass their fundraising target. Lord Abbett truly understands the struggles of mental health and the hardship that cancer can cause individuals and their families.
The firm comes together to support Movember by hosting Mo challenges throughout November to get employees excited about fundraising. Challenges include great giveaways (like participating in the iconic bell ringing ceremony at Nasdaq) for meeting fundraising milestones. Lord Abbett commences their month-long fundraising efforts with an annual Best Mo Contest, where participants share their stories about why fundraising for Movember is so important to them. They know that their efforts are making an impact, and they will continue to fundraise, raise awareness, and support Movember in any way they can.
