The Hydrocephalus Association (HA) was selected to be the beneficiary of the 2013 Manheim Golf Tournament Classic, an event held each year to support charities important to Manheim employees. Manheim, a subsidiary of Atlanta-based Cox Enterprises, is a wholesale vehicle auction operation transforming the wholesale vehicle buying and selling experience through investments in technology and innovative products and services. With 20,000 employees in 107 operating locations around the globe, Manheim is an established industry leader in its field. It also prides itself on being a company that cares about its employees, the environment and the communities it serves. From fundraising drives to tutoring kids after school to supporting long-term conservation efforts, Manheim and its employees are dedicated to protecting the environment and giving back to their communities. HA is honored to be selected as its 2013 Golf Tournament Classic beneficiary.
The 2013 tournament generated $30,000 to support research into better treatment options and a cure for hydrocephalus and the support services and educational work of the association. The funds will be used to further HA’s mission of eliminating the challenges of hydrocephalus, a common neurological condition impacting over 1 million people in the United States. Currently, there is no cure for hydrocephalus, and many patients must undergo repeated brain surgeries, as the only form of treatment for hydrocephalus is surgical. It is not uncommon for an individual with hydrocephalus to have ten or more brain surgeries within their lifetime. It is not unheard of for patients to have over 50.
“The future of patients living with hydrocephalus lies in the hands of caring companies like Manheim Corporation and the many individuals that seek to make a difference in the lives of those affected. We are very thankful for this generous gift and the employees at Manheim for supporting our cause,” stated Dawn Mancuso, HA’s CEO.
HA’s Atlanta WALK Chair, Jennifer Taylor, joined Manheim employees for an official check presentation. It was indeed a joyous moment for all families and the hydrocephalus movement. To learn more about Manheim’s work in the community click here https://www.manheimhearttohearts.com/.
