May 18, 2011 -- Northbrook, IL -- AmpliVox® Sound System announced today that it will provide pink podiums to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Affiliates for use at their breast cancer awareness fundraising and educational events. These specially-designed podiums are manufactured in the signature pink color of the breast cancer awareness movement. The donation is an extension of AmpliVox’s Pink Podium Promise, which has distributed nearly 100 podiums to breast cancer organizations since its inception in 2010.
Melissa Aucoin, Manager of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series commented, “The entire Susan G. Komen for the Cure family is grateful to AmpliVox for this generous and useful Pink Podium donation program. We expect that these pink podiums will be centerpieces at many of our events in the future.”
In the Pink Podium Promise Program, any Komen Affiliate can receive a pink podium free of charge for use at their Komen Race for the Cure, fundraisers, meetings or other events. The pink podiums are made of heavy-duty plastic, making them suitable for indoor and outdoor use. They include lockable casters for easy mobility.
AmpliVox CEO Don Roth conceived of the Pink Podium Promise Program as a way to tangibly help advocacy organizations get their messages across. “AmpliVox products are all designed to make people’s voices be heard,” said Roth, a cancer survivor himself. “The podiums are a practical and visible way for us to support the efforts of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and we are delighted that the national organization will enable us to supply them to the more than 120 Komen Affiliates across the U.S.”
About Susan G. Komen for the Cure®
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G.Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure® and the Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, we have invested more than $1.9 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
