NEW YORK, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ipreo, a leading global provider of workflow solutions and market intelligence to capital markets and corporate professionals, announced its support of "Leveraged Finance Fights Melanoma" (LFFM), an event to benefit the Melanoma Research Alliance's (MRA) global research and awareness program by leading a campaign to promote individual skin check-ups by physicians.
Regular skin checks can save lives by detecting melanoma and other skin cancers at their earliest stages when they are most likely to be cured. To help generate awareness, Ipreo has created the "Ipreo Debtdomain Skin Check Pledge." For each person who pledges to have completed a skin cancer screening in the last six months or to make an appointment for a skin check within three months, a group comprised of Ipreo, the private equity firm of KKR, and select LFFM donors will donate $100 to benefit the MRA, up to a $250,000 combined donation.
MRA is the largest private funder of melanoma research. LFFM is an annual event that brings together the biggest names in Leveraged Finance to raise funds to benefit the MRA in its fight against melanoma.
"We are proud to be supporting such a worthy cause," said David Levy, EVP & Managing Director, Debtdomain Syndicated Loans at Ipreo. "Melanoma is a terrible disease, but also very curable if caught early. We're pleased to be joining forces with other members of the Leveraged Finance community to support the MRA and encourage as many people as possible to get screened."
"The 'Skin Check Campaign' is a very tangible and generous program to prompt people to do something important for themselves and their families," said Wendy Selig, MRA CEO. "It is a wonderful opportunity to save lives. Ipreo is setting an important example of corporate leadership, as have an increasing number of MRA allies who similarly are now engaged with us in this crucial effort to support research and promote greater awareness about deadly skin cancer."
