Successful Pink Campaign


MARGARET: THIS IS THE LAST IN
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER AND THE LAST
DAY OF OUR WEAR PINK CAMPAIGN. THE MONTH-LONG PROGRAM AIMED TO
RAISE AWARENESS FOR BREAST
CANCER RESEARCH. BUT THE FIGHT ISN’T OVER. KELLY HURLEY FROM THE AMERICAN
CANCER SOCIETY IS WITH US THIS
AFTERNOON. COMING OFF OF THE CALL A THON
AND THE MAKING STRIDES WALK OVER
THE WEEKEND, HOW SUCCESSFUL WAS
YOUR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS
MONTH EFFORTS?>>IT WAS GREAT. ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN CANCER
SOCIETY I HAVE TO THANK YOU AND
EVERYONE IN THE STUDIO BEHIND
THE SCENES, TRULY WEARING PINK
EVERY DAY AND THE PARTNERSHIP
YOU ALL DO WITH PROMOTING OUR STRIDES AND CALL A THON, WE
RAISED $14,000 FROM THE CALL US
ON — CALL A THON, AND IN TOTAL
WE WILL BE CLOSE TO ABOUT A
HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS IN THE
MONTH OF OCTOBER. MARGARET: KNOWING THAT OCTOBER
IS COMING TO A CLOSE, WHAT DO
YOU WANT VIEWERS TO REMEMBER
ABOUT THIS MONTH?>>JUST BECAUSE OCTOBER IS
COMING TO AN END, DOES NOT MEAN
THAT CANCER COMES TO AN END. WE NEED PEOPLE TO THINK BEYOND
BREAST CANCER, WE ARE GETTING
READY TO GO INTO A TIME WHERE
EVERY CANCER IS IMPORTANT, AS
ALWAYS, BUT THINK THAT OUTSIDE
OUT OF MIND IS NOT THE CASE. IN THE OTHER THING IS THAT THE
AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY DOES
THINGS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. EVERYTHING THAT THE VIEWERS DID
FOR THE CALL US ON WAS A FACTOR
IN WHAT WE DO — CALL A THON WAS
A FACTOR IN WHAT WE DO BUT WE
STILL NEED HELP. MARGARET: WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE
AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AS YOU
BEGIN PLANNING FOR FUTURE EVENTS
FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS YEAR
AND INTO THE NEW YEAR? BECAUSE YOU GUYS THINK AHEAD.>>IT’S ALMOST 2020. WE DO NOT STOP, JUST LIKE CANCER
DOES NOT STOP. WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THOSE
VOLUNTEERS TO HELP US IN OUR
NEXT EVENT. WE ARE GETTING READY TO KICK OFF
THE RELAY FOR LIFE, THE
SIGNATURE FUNDRAISING EVENT THAT
ENCOURAGES FAMILY, FRIEND,
BUSINESSES, TO FORM A TEAM AND
FUN RACE. WE WANT THEM TO HAVE FUN. I THINK EVERY COUNTY WXII
TOUCHES HOSTS A RELAY FOR LIFE
EVENT, THAT SIGNIFIES PURPLE
WHICH REPRESENTS EVERY TYPE OF
CANCER. FOR EVERY FAMILY LOOKING TO GET
INVOLVED FOR WHAT MEAN SOMETHING
TO THEM IN PERSON — THEM
PERSONALLY, THAT’S A WAY TO DO
IT. LAST YEAR YOU GUYS PARTNERED
WITH WITH SUB CLUB OF THE DAY. MORE INFORMATION WILL COME OUT
BUT WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR
WAYS GOING IN — FOR WAYS TO GO
TO OUR WEBSITE TO FIND OUT MORE
TO DO. MARGARET: THANK YOU
