Riverside Payments congratulates Jeremy Shroyer, VP of Sales, on his recent appointment to the Board of Ambassadors for Susan G. Komen of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Jeremy has been extremely active with SGK events from Lunch for the Cure, to Race for the Cure, and last weekend’s Kick for the Cure, organizing details, working the events, and coordinating Riverside volunteers, yet he wants to make an even bigger impact by helping develop outreach campaigns and new fundraising events that will help spread awareness to the younger generation.

“We’re targeting ages 20 to 45 to spread awareness about getting screenings done as early as age 30, because early detection is key. It’s been inspiring to see everyone come out for these events to support the cause, especially the survivors who overcame physical and emotional turmoil. It’s our goal to see more and more people of all ages getting involved.”

Since partnering on Susan G. Komen events, Riverside has been instrumental in helping increase the number of donations streaming in, which go towards research, testing, and financial assistance during treatment.

“So many people have been affected by breast cancer, be it personally, or through a loved one. By spreading awareness to younger generations, we are conditioning them early to take preventative actions when appropriate in an effort to save more lives, as well as providing them with a worthy cause they can be proud to support.”

Just as Jeremy has played a huge role in shaping Riverside into the award winning company it is today, we have no doubt he will be an extreme asset in his position as one of the Ambassadors of Susan G. Komen.

“I’m honored for the opportunity to help spread awareness, and raise money for research so that we may one day stop the loss of life due to breast cancer.”
