Chantilly, VA - November 30, 2010 - InfinityQS® International, the leading provider of real-time Statistical Process Control (SPC) software, today announced its sponsorship of the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend. The sponsorship is part of InfinityQS' $1 million commitment to one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases.
The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend will be held on Dec. 4, 2010 in Memphis Tenn. The fun-filled race weekend takes place in the birthplace of rock 'n' roll and the home of the blues. Participants are encouraged to experience Memphis' rich and unique musical heritage, great food and tons of Southern hospitality while participating in a race benefiting the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Athletes can choose to participate in a marathon, half marathon, or 5K race.
A group of InfinityQS employees will be representing the company on the course in Memphis. The company also encourages other organizations and individuals to support St. Jude by contributing financially or by participating in the events of the marathon weekend.
"A gift to St. Jude is a gift to everyone--it is an honor to be involved with this great event," said Michael A. Lyle, president and CEO of InfinityQS. "Two of my sons and I are signed up for the half marathon and we'll be running to help lift the burden of families struggling through the emotional tolls of childhood diseases."
