At SMI Paving, we’re about more than just asphalt. We’re about supporting the people who live in the communities we serve. We carry out this mission in several ways. We always strive to provide excellent service, fair pricing, and honest work to every client we work with. But we also look beyond the job site for other opportunities to give back. Through sponsorships of community events like the Teal Clay Classic, SMI Paving is helping create better places for us all to live.
Held in Waxhaw, NC, the Teal Clay Classic is in its fourth year of raising money for and awareness of ovarian cancer. All funds raised go to Fighting With Joy, an organization founded by Heather Steele. While Heather’s ovarian cancer journey ended earlier this year, her memory lives on through her organization and this event.
Fighting With Joy provides emotional support and financial assistance to women facing ovarian cancer, as well as their families. Clients have someone to turn to as they face their diagnosis, navigate their treatment, and work through their recovery. Through a variety of programs and resources, Fighting With Joy walks with women as they manage their care. The organization also provides support to doctors and groups for research, with a special emphasis on early diagnostic testing. Early detection is also highlighted.
SMI Paving is proud to support Fighting With Joy through our sponsorship of the Teal Clay Classic. To learn more about Heather Steele’s story and her organization, visit Fighting With Joy’s website.
