CC holds "Torch Run" event to kick-off annual CFC campaign

Molly Deol, chief of the Office of Employee Ethics, participated as torchbearer.

The Clinical Center Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) kicked off with a "Torch Run" Oct. 29 in the atrium. The CFC annual campaign collects charitable donations from federal employees to support charities and causes of each donor's choice. Clinical Center staff used CFC flags to cheer on the torchbearers and to support the "Show Some Love" campaign. Many department heads participated as torchbearers and "lit their way" in support of the charities and those they serve. The CFC torch was then placed in the office of the CEO.

In addition to the "Torch Run" kick-off event, the Clinical Center CFC committee organized a Candy Grams mail service in December. It allowed staff to send a message to a colleague using a note card which was then placed in a CFC labeled envelope with a candy cane attached. It was later delivered by a Core Member or Keyworker. Close to 420 Candy Grams envelopes were distributed in the Clinical Center during 3rd week of December.
