CGI, Leaders Donna Morea, George Schindler Honored by CF Foundation

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has awarded CGI the title of “Corporation of the Year” in recognition of the financial and sponsorship it has provided over the years. Harvey Weiner accepted the award at the Foundation’s annual “State of the Science” meeting, where highlights of the research funded by CGI and other donors revealed that the average age of survival for CF patients has now reached nearly 40.

CGI members had joined the Weiner family’s team and actively participated in the nationwide Great Strides walk, the Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. This continued for 10 years and in 2007 CGI additionally sponsored an enthusiastic company team that walked alongside the Weiner family. Since then, CGI has served as the title sponsor for the Foundation’s Annual Joker’s Wild Casino Night, and event that raises nearly $150, 000 to fund high tech research for potential new drugs and treatments

Consistent with CGI’s culture it became a major supporter of the CF Foundation in 2007, after Weiner approached CGI leadership about the good work that the Foundation was doing to fund research to find a cure. “Without hesitation, Donna Morea (President U.S., India, Europe and Asia) and George Schindler (President, CGI Federal) asked how CGI could help, ” Harvey says. “In this, as they do in many other ways, CGI is walking the talk, to make a positive impact in the communities where we live.”
