This disease has affected several of our staff members and we are very passionate about getting involved and helping those also affected.
Plantation, Florida (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
On Saturday October 11th, 2014, Team UA was in full force with approximately 55+ staff members, family and friends to participate in American Cancer Society’s Making Strides against Breast Cancer local walk in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The outpouring of support and great weather made it a great day to participate and lend support to this great cause. UA has contributed through several fundraising efforts since 2009. October’s goal was dedicated to raising funds as their month end goal was $5,000.00. As a greater incentive, UA matched every $1 dollar contributed. Team UA embarked on several initiatives at their Corporate Headquarters to raise funds: their Team Page and different activities like a Hawaiian themed potluck, ice cream socials and cupcake sales. Their Facebook campaign has been very successful since 2012 and Team UA implemented it again this year to help raise awareness. For every person that liked their Facebook page counted as a “New Like,” from October 1st through the 31st, 2014 and Team UA donated $1 to Making Strides. They started on October 1st with 61,770 likes and have received 3,340 new likes.
Team UA surpassed their goal and raised a total of $5,905.76. Lori Dunlap, VP of Marketing, said, “This disease has affected several of our staff members and we are very passionate about getting involved and helping those also affected.”
