Last Friday, the dedicated staff of WE Transport, along with their parent company Beacon Mobility, came together in a remarkable display of solidarity by wearing purple to raise awareness for Cornelia De Lange Syndrome (CdLS). By actively supporting this cause, the employees demonstrated their commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of individuals affected by this rare genetic disorder.
Cornelia De Lange Syndrome is a relatively uncommon genetic condition that affects an estimated 1 in 10,000 to 30,000 individuals worldwide. It is characterized by a range of physical, cognitive, and medical challenges that can vary widely among individuals. CdLS is caused by genetic mutations that impact the development of multiple body systems, leading to distinctive facial features, growth delays, intellectual disabilities, and potential health complications. Although CdLS can present significant obstacles, individuals with the syndrome possess unique strengths and bring joy to those around them.
WE Transport, a leading provider of safe and reliable transportation services, recognizes the importance of raising awareness and fostering understanding about CdLS within the community. The company firmly believes in inclusivity and providing support for individuals with special needs, ensuring they have equal opportunities to engage in educational, recreational, and social activities.
Robert Quinn, Chief Operations Officer at WE Transport, expressed his pride in the staff's unwavering commitment to this cause, stating, "At WE Transport, we understand the power of unity and the positive impact it can have on society. By coming together in support of Cornelia De Lange Syndrome awareness, we aim to shed light on this rare disorder and extend our support to individuals and families affected by it. We are dedicated to providing safe and compassionate transportation solutions for all members of our community, regardless of their unique challenges. We believe that everyone deserves respect, dignity, and equal opportunities, and we will continue to advocate for inclusivity in all aspects of life."
WE Transport and Beacon Mobility are committed to making a meaningful difference through their collective efforts. By raising awareness about Cornelia De Lange Syndrome and actively supporting affected individuals, their families, and the organizations dedicated to CdLS research and support, the companies aim to foster a more inclusive and empathetic society.
