DWS is proud to announce its sponsorship of ‘Schiff’s Soldiers’, helping to raise much needed funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). As part of their ‘Light the Night’ walk series, LLS welcomes nearly 1 million people across 140 evening walks across the USA and Canada.
The fundraising group has been set up in honor of John Schiff, former Vice President of Oracle JD Edwards Business Development, who sadly succumbed to Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in March 2018 after a short battle with the disease.
John was a long-standing pillar in the JD Edwards community and played a central role in the overall management of JD Edwards’ relationships with customers around the globe for more than 20 years before retiring in 2017. His commitment, determination and positive attitude remains an inspiration and has led to the creation of this fundraising effort in his name.
