SR Supports Check-6 Foundation
Strategic Results is proud to support the Check-6 Foundation, which provides financial assistance to veterans and creates memorable Pilot for a Day experiences for terminally ill children at Joint Base Andrews. Our sponsorship of the foundation includes helping get the word out about its programs by marketing and publicizing events. Please visit the Check-6 Foundation’s website, check6.org, to learn more about its mission and work, including its most recent Pilot for a Day event honoring 8-year-old Kwami Penty and events honoring our nation’s military men and women. Because Check-6 is entirely volunteer run, there is little overhead and nearly all donation money goes directly to veterans and terminally ill children. Strategic Results is committed to supporting worthy charitable organizations in the areas where we do business, both by lending our expertise and through direct giving.

The meeting, planned by STRATEGIC RESULTS and held at the National Institutes of Health, featured 25 world-renowned speakers presenting about the role of mitochondria in health and disease.

In addition, more than 200 scientists submitted abstracts and displayed their research with posters, creating additional opportunities for all attendees to discuss emerging research, give and receive feedback on research and engage in dialogues that will help advance knowledge of mitochondrial mitochondrial diseases and lead to development of effective therapies. Attendees called the meeting “excellent,” “a pleasure” and “the best meeting I’ve ever been to.” STRATEGIC RESULTS was pleased to manage all conference logistics and planning so that the science could shine.
