The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have agreed to a multi-year partnership with Jabil, a global electronics manufacturer based out of St. Petersburg, FL. Jabil and the Buccaneers will collaborate on a variety of impactful community initiatives focused on a commitment to improving the Tampa Bay area.
A featured component of the partnership will be Jabil's role as title sponsor of the Treasure Chests "Finish at the 50": 5K, 10K, Fun Run & Corporate Challenge Powered by Jabil – the Buccaneers' marquee cancer awareness event benefitting breast cancer research and patient services.
"The Treasure Chest Fun Run & Corporate Challenge is one of our signature community events each year and we are excited to work with our new partners at Jabil to make this season's event the best yet for runners of all levels with additional 1-mile and 10K options," said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. "Much like the Buccaneers, Jabil takes a great amount of pride in the work they do in the community. Through this partnership, we look forward to creating new and exciting programs that will benefit the entire Tampa Bay area."
Jabil Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications and Investor Relations Beth Walters said, "We are pleased to be a community partner with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because we are both committed to making a positive impact throughout Tampa Bay. This community-focused partnership with the Bucs aligns around Jabil's core focus areas of Education, Empowerment, and the Environment."
Jabil's other community-based programs include working with All Children's Hospital Institute for Brain Protection Services and the American Heart Association's research on heart disease and stroke prevention. Jabil's support for active and retired armed service members and their families -- including the more than 100 veterans employed at the company's St. Petersburg campus – will strengthen the Buccaneers' already far-reaching military appreciation efforts throughout the year, highlighted by the team's annual Salute to Service game. Additionally, employees from both organizations will work together to complete hands-on service projects aligned with Jabil's global environmental policy to improve unique issues facing the Tampa Bay community.
