Akron, OH (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
Hygenic/Performance Health, maker of Perform Pain Reliever, increased in-store activity with an Instant Redeemable Coupon (IRC) program in support of Pink-Link Breast Cancer Support Network, an online support resource for women affected by breast cancer. Perform Pain Reliever’s IRC program resulted in savings for the consumer and a donation for Pink-Link for each coupon redeemed. The program concluded with a total donation of $5,000 to Pink-Link.
“I am so grateful to Hygenic/Performance Health and their generous donation to Pink-Link. We appreciate all their efforts in promoting the Perform/Pink-Link relationship,” stated Vicki Tashman, founder of Pink-Link. “This funding will support our community outreach efforts. Creating awareness for Pink-Link is vital so that all breast cancer survivors are able to get the support and hand holding they need to continue their journey. We currently have over 4,700 members in our online survivor database in all 50 states, as well as in 40 other countries. Since our inception, our members have made over 1,500 connections with each other. This means that the survivors are getting the support, encouragement and knowledge they need to face their treatment of breast cancer.”
Pink-Link is a nonprofit organization and all breast cancer support services are free. Pink-Link's key service, an online database of breast cancer survivors, creates an intimate and personal link between breast cancer survivors. This "mentor-survivor" relationship provides the essential on-going support needed to endure treatment of breast cancer.
“This is our second IRC program in support of Pink-Link and we are pleased that it has built upon the first by providing additional exposure and support for this worthwhile organization,” stated Chas Tabone, Associate Trade Marketing Manager at Performance Health. “We’ve built our business by providing products that help individuals manage their pain so they can live a full and active lifestyle. Pink-Link’s purpose supports our vision, and we are pleased that our programs can make a difference for them.”
