North Shore Medical Center and Danversbank are pleased to announce that the bank’s Director of Compliance and the Danversbank Charitable Foundation, Inc., Kevin Noyes, will serve as the chairperson for the 2011 North Shore Cancer WALK. Danversbank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Danvers Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: DNBK).
Kevin has been involved in several aspects of the walk over the last eleven years, most recently as a member of the 20th Anniversary WALK Steering Committee. As Director of the Danversbank Charitable Foundation, Inc., he has played an influential role in the bank’s support of the walk and helped secure a $150,000 charitable donation to the North Shore Medical Center.
Kevin’s interest and dedication to the walk has been both personal and professional, as his father passed away from cancer this past August. “I was truly honored to be asked to serve as next year’s chairperson, but saddened at the same time. It brought up a lot of emotion for me, but I knew I had to do it, not only to represent the bank’s involvement with the center, but to honor both of my parents who have been afflicted with cancer and also to recognize the great care my father received from the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center,” he said. “My mother is a breast cancer survivor and my dad had a long cancer battle of his own—although being the guy that he was, he rarely complained. Needless to say, my role in next year’s walk is very special to me.”
