As summer turns to fall, we look toward two consecutive months of cancer awareness. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. So now is the time to plan and prepare to host or contribute cancer awareness promotions to these events. There are many organizations, events, and fund raisers surrounding both. Contact Ad Pro, AIA to help you with your cancer awareness promotions.
There is growing support for the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation and I would recommend their organization to you as well. You can go here to see their website. Childhood cancer is not well publicized and is traditionally underfunded. The color of their awareness ribbon is yellow or gold. One of childhood cancer’s events is the St. Baldrick’s Fundraiser. There are many ways to use cancer awareness promotions for these events. Participants raise funds to go toward a person shaving their head in support of children with cancer. The cause of childhood cancer got a well deserved boost last year when Buster Posey and his wife Kristin began a childhood cancer program. This program is in partnership with the San Francisco Giants baseball organization and the V Foundation. Read about it here and see the special promotional cap that was designed for this cause.
Breast cancer, the second leading cause of death in women, has been the leader in awareness events and support. They have paved the way for other cancers to be recognized as well. Read about some tips and facts for October Breast Cancer Awareness here. There are many Relay for Life events, Making Strides runs, and other events that donors create to meet the specific needs of their area. Therefore there are cancer awareness promotional needs like t-shirts, hats, wrist bands, pins, and bags. You can help by branding one or more needed items with your business logo and the name of the event.
