I am proud to support an organization like the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I am the daughter of a survivor, and every year (for the past 10 years!) my entire family joins together to walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure." - Laura Dudley, ParknPool

ParknPool is commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month by using social media to spread the word and help raise money for the Susan G. Komen For the Cure. ParknPool is an online distributer of commercial grade furniture, field and sports equipment, bleachers, restaurant seating and site furnishings. Susan G. Komen For the Cure, founded in 1982, is a worldwide leader in the fight against breast cancer. They are the largest source of not-for-profit funding committed to finding a cure for breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer, and the leading cause of death from cancer, in the world. Every 23 seconds, a woman somewhere in the world is diagnosed. However, huge strides have been, and continue to be, made in the battle against breast cancer. As more and more women are being regularly screened, even with over 1 million women worldwide being diagnosed last year, mortality rates are decreasing. In the United States alone, there are over 2 million survivors alive today.
Understanding that social media is playing a larger role in a business marketing plan than ever before, ParknPool has spent the last four months reconstructing and re-launching its social media presence. Realizing the power of social media, ParknPool decided to team up with the Susan G. Komen For the Cure during the month of October. For every new “like” on their Facebook corporate page during the month of October, ParknPool is donating a dollar to Susan G Komen For the Cure.
Melanie Maze, ParknPool Account Manager, states, “I am excited that we have decided to team up with the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Cancer research is crucial to finding a cure. Too many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another.” ParknPool is involved with a number of organizations, including the American Cancer Society, Comfort Care Women’s Health, the YMCA, Young Life, and Compassion International.
