Tucker CEO completes marathon & raises over $2,000 for charitable cause

Cherry Hill, N.J. (December 17, 2008) – Jeffrey Tucker, CEO of Tucker Company, Cherry Hill, N.J., recently competed in the Philadelphia Marathon, and raised over $2,000 for the Fellowship House of South Camden, New Jersey.

Tucker, along with the Rotary Club of Haddonfield, presented a check in the amount of $2,160 to Reverend Harrison Davis, executive director of the Fellowship House, in the memory of Brandon Thompson, the grandson of Reverend Davis. Recently Brandon, aged four, was tragically killed in Camden, N.J. by a stray bullet. The Fellowship House ministers to South Camden’s children and adults in a number of areas including drug rehabilitation, church services and food distribution.

Tucker, who completed the run in 4:35 hours, acknowledged the support of friends, family and the Rotary Club in this effort for the Fellowship House and the memory of Brandon. In accepting the donation, Reverend Davis expressed appreciation to everyone who helped, and said the funds will be used to help Brandon’s family during this difficult time.
